Prairie dogs are burrowing rodents known for their propensity to dig vast underground tunnel systems, eat grass and communicate through chirping barks. They often pose a danger to livestock because of the burrows and holes that they dig. Livestock can step in the holes causing leg breaks or other serious injuries. Because of this, they are considered a nuisance ranch rodent. Our private land prairie dog hunts take place across from the Luna Canyon lodge which is located in North Central New Mexico.
