Can you hunt prairie dogs on the Rita Blanca Grasslands? Can anyone speak from experience hunting them on the grasslands? Also, what does prairie dog taste like?

I don't know if you can shoot them out there but I did one time skin a prairie dog with the intention of eating it. If you can get past the smell you are one hungry son of a gun!

They can carry the plague, handle carefully.

Not sure if your allowed to hunt them there.

Think the plague wiped out a bunch a few years ago but no first hand experience

I was there in 2016 for an Antelope hunt. Was encouraged to shoot P. D.’s recreationally. I was not willing. But, there were plenty there had I been of the mind to do so.
