No, I do not have pictures of bean fields, but I got out west today near where I hunt, and had to take a couple of pics. This is central South Dakota near the Pierre area. Unfortunately I didn't have time to track down any sod poodles.Really Sad Fortunately I have family living there now, and a place to stay, so I have time to go look for some. Anyway, here is a long range deer hunt just waiting to happen.

Better go get yourself a 50 cal.  Give you a sporting chance.  Big Smile  Actually you may find the hunting is not as hard as you think out there.

By the way.  I think your pyro equation equals 90.  But since I didn't really look at it, I could be wrong.

Hey helo, I think you failed math in school, right?  Don't worry, takes talent and training to fly helicopters, not math.
 
270 is the answer
 
Nice looking country, better get some knee pads and elbow pads for crawling or a cut a cow sized cardboard silhouette to hide behind!

Yes the equation works out to 270 without the pyro. At least that was the intention. As far as the prairie dogs go, no I didn't get there. I've been too busy losing jobs this year to do much shooting or hunting of any sort. I still have the numbers though, and looked into some more possibilities while I was in Pierre last week. I'm hoping the .300 Wby will do, as I get tired trying to carry a .50 cal. as they weigh more than I do.Big Smile

Yeah didn't look that close. Mixed up my signs. Here's my sign!

If the deer are as dumb as some out here you won't need a long range gun at all.

If you shoot those towns I told you about you'll have to fashion a homemade water jacket to keep that 300 Wby barrel cool.Big Grin  They're dug in thick like ticks there.  I like to bring out the .22 and set up a perimeter for suppression fire.

I hunt the same looking country as those pics, wheatfield, CRP and just open prarie type stuff..I just find little draws and gullys that normally hold Deer. Sometimes I can find them still bedded down in the taller grass's or a little patch of brush. There have been times when Ive just jumped Deer like pheasants.  And some times they are just in the wide open and will not let you get close enough to get a clean shot and you need an air strike.. But normally I can get within 250 yards or so for a good shot. Im not beyond shooting one in its bed either and thats happend before to...I wish I had  permission to hunt private or public ground like that  here as most of it is "private" and "posted" or "paid hunting". Its really gotten tough to find a place down low where I live...I hope it works out for ya!Smile

State tree in SoDak is the telephone pole. Wife is from the Black Hills. Try to get over there for some really great White Tail hunting.
