In early Sept 2018 I was able to put an arrow through my first antelope. All spot/stalk, in Wyoming. Wish I had better photos, but the 90 degree heat compelled me to get him cut up right away. Overnight, a neighborhood dog stole the skull and chewed it up pretty bad, but we managed to recover it a day later by asking around.

Extremely challenging target species with a bow. Congratulations on what I’m sure feels like a very rewarding and successful hunt.

I love bow hunting for elk and deer and it is my primary means of attempting to take them. The patience and skill of trying to take a pronghorn with a bow seems elusive to me and I salute anyone who has the fortitude and patience to do so, whether making an epic stalk through scant cover or waiting them out in a blind.

Nice buck and I'm glad you were able to recover the trophy!

Thanks! And thanks everyone for the congrats. Yeah they provide a difficult stalk, but at least in Wyoming you have the opportunity to make many stalk attempts a day. So many lopes out there, and scenery is icing on the cake.

That's a beautiful animal. How did you close the distance to get into bow range? I've only ever hunted antelope with a rifle and really want to try with a bow next year.

Antelope seems like the ultimate spot and stalk critter. Definitely a goal of mine. Congrats!
