Early when it is hot and dry is great as some will come to water several times a day. Later closer to the rut or during the rut you will see bucks that you have not seen before as they are traveling and chasing Doe's, Buck's will follow Doe's to water but they may not drink, so may not offer a good shot.

I'm planning a pronghorn hunt on private land in 2022. Given these two date options, which do you guys that have experience think would be best? Landowner provides blinds at waterholes. Aug. 29-Sept. 1 or Sept. 12-15
I'd take the closer to rut dates. Have fun!
they gonna stank in september!! Really bad! But , if you dont kill one, you wont have to smell it! LOL

Either one. Both would work. I like early in the season as it is usually hotter and drier...

I'd take the earlier dates. Put a small, wet towel in a cooler w/ drinks & bring it in the blind with you. You'll be glad you did.
Either date could be great or a bust depending on the weather. Rain is a real deal breaker on Antelope hunting if you are hunting water, you want hot and dry.
