39 yards, quartering away, that's the exit hole in front of his shoulder. Took him forever to come in and calm down to get a drink. He went about 60 yards and tipped over

Got this guy Wyoming opener Monday August 15th. Sat in my pop up blind from 6:00 AM until my shot at 5:33 PM. Very hot day but worth the wait. Horns about 13 1/2 with good prongs and mass. 25 yard shot. Good luck to all and congratulations to those successful hunters.

My son and I added another specie to our take together. First stalk of the season. One & Done. 50 yard shot..spot and Sprint. Who needs camo anyways??? :) We were on our way to join some friends already at antelope camp when this little buck was feeding in an very stalkable location. No time to change clothes. Just grab my bow and Sprint across the 400 yards hoping the antelope were still tight in near the willows...

My son and I have taken whitetail, elk and now goats together.. Guess I better start planning a mule deer hunt.... Once the elk tag is punched that is. :)

Looks like I am able to add mine. I was very fortunate to finally get my hands on this great goat. It was my first one and I am extremely happy with him.

A big thanks goes out to my guides Mark and JJ at Werner Ranch. If it were not for the persistence of these great guys then I would not have gotten him.

The buck I have been after all season finally made a mistake.

After 7 years of passing up bucks, waiting for my ideal antelope, it finally came together on my first stalk this year with Wild West Outfitters in Alberta. We stalked to about 120 yards and popped the decoy up, but neither he nor his does paid any attention. After that, we were able to sneak further in to about 80 yards. Obviously, the buck had noticed the buck decoy earlier, as he challenged us before we even got the decoy up. As soon as he looked away, he popped the decoy up and my guide began whispering ranges. I drew behind the decoy then slowly leaned out when he reached 40 yards. He kept walking and when he reached 30 yards and quartering to, I put the pin on his close shoulder and sent the VPA on the way. The hit was perfect and he only went 25 yards before tipping over on the prairie.

MBMule,

That is one heck of a nice pronghorn!!

From: MBMule
18-Sep-16
Thanks, Jake! Judging by his green score, he should gross between 79 8/16" and 80 8/16", depending on how much he shrinks during the drying period.

Hello,

I've never hunted before. just interested in trad archery and kind of interested in the taste of antelope. Any interesting dishes for pronghorn?

Thanks.

Haha thanks, Kyle! Fish'n, I had it probably close to 10 years ago in hot dog style sausages, and it was great that way. I don't have much experience with it other than that (yet), but I would imagine that lots of these guys have eaten plenty of it and could help you out. You may get more replies starting a thread dedicated to that question, too.

Picked up a tag last minute after the season started just in case I'd have time to hunt. Turned out to be a great get. My best antelope, on Sept. 10th Colorado.

Pronghorn meat is great, as long as you take good care of it.

My family will take it over venison, and rank it with elk.
