EXPLORE 1 RODENTS WALK UP DESTINATIONS IN AUSTRIA AND PLAN YOUR NEXT HUNTING TRIP

Walked up, Trapping, Stalking


Best worked with as a team, consisting of a spotter and a shooter, hunting for rodents such as the prairie dog, alpine marmot, woodchuck, beaver or grey squirrel is a great way to fill your time between hunting seasons. With whitetail or turkey hunting right around the corner, why don't you sharpen your accuracy on some pesky varmints? One way to get away from the targets at the local shooting range that won't put too much strain on your wallet. Rodents build intricate burrows for families to survive harsh winters and hide from predators but come out to feed frequently- an ideal target time. Some species create a more challenging and great hunt than others. Grey squirrel hunting between lofty treelines is not the same as an open field pitted with prairie-dog-mines. The same stealth needed for bigger game is also needed for these little critters. Once a hunter, always a hunter- be quiet, enter a forest quietly or an alpine field cautiously and the rodents will be there. Following hunting methods are used when you try to hunt a rodent and have a great time chasing them:


  • Walked Up

  • Trapping
