This remote South Dakota range on the Prairie Dog Ranch is about 85 miles south of Rapid City in the heart of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Thirty-plus years of benchrest heritage has led to covered loading area and 20 covered benches, renowned for its primitive conditions, camaraderie, and historical significance in the world of benchrest - unofficial home of the .22 Waldog. Come a few days early and tune up on the original varmint targets.

This patently honest South Dakota range is situated on the crest of a small rise with only low backstop berms to interrupt the occasional breeze out of the north. More likely to get howling prairie winds in your right ear that will test the best wind shooters with rapid fire switches. Bring some short (12"-16") flags in case you draw a bench on the east end.


Nearest reasonable accommodations are in Gordon, Nebraska (about 30 miles). The most common routes into the ranch are from the south and from the west. If you haven't been there before, it is highly advisable to follow another shooter in or call Don for directions. It is several miles of dusty, rough two-track into the ranch and range. Plan on camping on the range to get the whole experience. Limited electricity is available and many shooters bring pickups with slide-in campers, smaller fifth-wheel and bumper pull campers. Showers and restrooms are available. A large motorhome would NOT be advised!
