Yeah I used to do that with my dad and a couple of his buddies years back. We used to go over to eastern Washington (I used to live in Washington). We used to go and hunt rock chucks and coyotes with a .223, and sage rats with a .22. It was quite a bit of fun to do.

I remember those days. I use to hunt them in Utah decades ago and it was always fun to see them fly! I was shooting a 6MM Remington back then, 300 yards was a close shot for some of them. Lots of fun when the farmers wanted us to come clean them out for them. Haven't seen any in years now and the area we used to hunt now has cabins all over the hills.
