Hunting pronghorns is a fun and exciting challenge.
During the hunting season, their coats blend with the grasses and sage of the prairies making them difficult to spot.
You might also need to determine if that white spot in the distance is a rock or an antelope rump, so good binoculars or a spotting scope are must haves.
The pronghorn’s vision is ten times better than yours, their sense of smell is excellent, and their hearing is acute, so you need to keep that in mind as you try to stalk a group of pronghorn.
If they detect any danger they will spook easily. However, remember that pronghorn do have a tendency to run for a short distance, then stop and look back to see if they are being pursued.
You need to be capable of making long shots, walking a lot, and sometimes crawling on your belly to keep from being seen by the magnificent pronghorn.
