Prairie Dog Hunt Pro is a single player shooter. It is the third game in Diversions Software's Prairie Dog series.

Prairie dogs, genus Cynomys, are burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. They are a pest and this game is all about blasting them as they run from burrow to burrow, a bit like a Whac-A-Mole game with guns.

There are two kinds of game play, the timed mode and the open season mode. Both are essentially the same but only the timed mode scores are added to the highscore table. The game has sound effects, sniper scope, variable game speed, a high score table and three difficulty levels. Aiming and shooting is mouse controlled but the keyboard is used to vary the scope's magnification.

The open season mode and the ability to change the size of the ammo clip are not available in the shareware version.
