Where to hunt Pronghorn Antelope

Pronghorn antelope hunting is a classic of the American West. The animals are numerous in most prairie states and provinces, including Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana and Alberta. Being exclusively a North American species, the Pronghorn Antelope can’t be hunted anywhere else in the world.

Price distribution

Wide range and high numbers of the species make Pronghorn Antelope hunting trips one of the most affordable opportunities to experience a guided big game hunt in the West. Most Pronghorn hunts are in the $2,000 - $3,000 range, and go up to $4,000 according to hunt length, type of accommodation, and attractiveness of terrain. The most expensive offers are combination hunts. Antelope hunting may come as a combo with elk and mule deer hunts, and could also include bird hunting, coyote hunting, varmint shooting, and fishing.

When to hunt Pronghorn Antelope?

For bowhunters the best time for pronghorn antelope hunting is early in the season, when it’s hot and water is in short supply, so it’s easier to hunt pronghorn from blinds. Trophy hunters tend to prefer the rut period, which with pronghorn typically happens in September and October. The combination of rut and hot weather typically produces best hunting results.

Hunting methods All hunting methods (8)

Spot and stalk is the prime method for hunting Pronghorn Antelope. The first part is usually easy, the second not so much. Apart from amazing speed (the Pronghorn are America’s fastest land animal), the critters are equipped with no less amazing eyesight. Imagine looking through 8x binoculars with 320 degree field of vision. , that some researchers compare to human with 8x binoculars. That means no matter how long-range your rifle, and how confident you are at long-range shooting, you'd better get ready for a long and painful stalk, often involving crawling. Once you've mastered it, however, you can harvest pronghorns even with short-ranged weapons. Bowhunters may also hunt pronghorns out of blinds set over waterholes, or, during the rut, use a decoy to distract the attention of the buck (you better not do that on public land during rifle season, though).

Why hunt Pronghorn Antelope? All hunts (57)

Pronghorn are all-American creatures, and are unique in many ways. This includes their unusual horns, which they got their name from. They have a bony core that remains with the animal across its life span, and an outer shell that is shed and regrown every year. They aren’t the only species with such a horn structure, but the only species with shedable horns that branch into two prongs. The prongs are uniquely shaped so that in spite of the forks the shells can still come off. For those with “can’t eat horns” attitude, the Pronghorn antelope offers delicious venison, which many rank above deer or elk. But perhaps the greatest lure of pronghorn antelope hunting is the chance to immerse in the ageless past, and, to quote Ron Spomer, to rediscover your hunting heritage, and to return to the wild world from which we’d sprung.

3 Day Antelope Hunt

3 Day Antelope Hunt United States

Our antelope hunts are located in the rolling hills and flat country north of Big Timber, MT. This hunt requires drawing a special permit (area 570). The odds of drawing are typically around 80 percent. Antelope numbers are very abundant in our area. It is not unusual to look through 50 to 200 head per day. Bucks harvested usually are between 13-15 inches, with the chance for bigger. Typically these hunts offer a 100% shot opportunity. On an average day we will head out after breakfast and glass the vast country until we find a harvestable buck. Stalks can be very exciting, usually resulting in crawling on our hands and knees in pursuit of your trophy. If you're looking for a challenging, yet affordable hunt, this should be your choice.
