Anybody ever used one of these, and if so how well does it work? I'm thinking of trying 1 on prairie dogs, but i've never even looked thru 1 yet.

Depending on the inherent accuracy of the theodolite, you can get down to about .125in with a theodolite.  However, it DOES require some skill obtained through practice.  You won't get that in a first outing, I don't think.  Even the "auto" models (VERY expensive) require some practice before optimum accuracy and precision can be obtained.

I didn't know exactly what a theodolite was.

So I looked it up in Wikipedia, and read for awhile. It helped me feel a little more stupid.

 Pretty cool stuff.
