Antelope Hunt, Day 2

With hard weather moving in, our first day might be our best day to knock down a pronghorn.

Day 2, 5:55 am
We all had a great night's sleep after a hearty dinner and a long trip. Driving through Montana's Crow Country on the way to our camp was a breathtaking experience; the snow capped Big Horn mountains towering over rolling hills is a must-see for anyone with a passion for the outdoors. Buffalo, Wyo., seems just as scenic but I'll try not to get too poetic.

We arrived in Buffalo and headed straight to the range to bang away with our CVA's. On the ride over Chad Schearer, host of Shoot Straight TV, gave me a few tips for knocking down a trophy this morning:

-With snow on the ground pronghorn hunting gets a bit tougher. Speed goats are small and blend in well on Wyoming's snowy hillsides. Hunters aren't small and we don't blend in all that well.

-The mud and snow gets so deep out here that stalking through this terrain gets a hell of a lot rougher.

So, with all that in mind we are about to head out for the morning stalk, and we'll see what we come up with.

Go Back.

Continue on Day 2.
