Pronghorn on the brain for 2019, zero points..anywhere

Like the title says, I've recently become obsessed with the idea of chasing a speed goat in 2019. I relocated to Dallas from Kansas a week ago, and am thinking New Mexico is my best shot in order to maximize time off from work. According to GoHunt, there's not a single unit in the state that gives me a 50% or better odds of drawing, and the lower draw percentages present roughly 10% public land. Anybody have any advice or leads on a either a different state, or a trespass fee hunt, etc.?

Western Kansas has pronghorn. The farmers/ranchers will love you to kill one or more. OTC tags for residents not sure for nr. First season is early sept if my memory serves me correctly.

Some advise. Unless your sitting on horseshoe forget NM.
There might me some limited areas in Co, Idaho and Mt....however I would skip that since your on the ground floor.

Focas on WY and call it a day.

I looked up the county game wardens out west and called them, took a while to get a hold of them but I got some phone #'s of ranchers that would allow antelope hunting.
No kidding?? Thats a fantastic idea. Looks like I might be hunting Kansas speedgoats again! I'll start making those calls ASAP. Thanks for the tip, Zap!

NR Pronghorn tags in Kansas are archery only.

You can draw some units in Northeast Wyoming with 0 points, some can be tough hunts, but my buddy and I both killed 70" goats in 2018 on leftover tags.

I drew a Pronghorn tag in New Mexico last year. It can be done, requires no points, and you get your tag money back if you don't draw. The NM archery tags allow you to hunt any legally accessible public land in the unit you draw. For the rifle tags you are assigned to a ranch and that's all the land you get to hunt. I was assigned to a ranch that was about 8,000 acres. I knew guys that were assigned to ranches with 30,000 acres and talked to guys that were given ranches that you could see the entire ranch from the entry gate (and obviously didn't have any goats on it). So you can get screwed in that respect as much as you can get assigned a ranch with 80"+ potential.

I don't know if you'd be interested in just a meat hunt, but I've applied for WY reduced doe/fawn tags 4 times now (2 tags per application) & drawn 5 tags. I've only not drawn once for the units I've put in for.
The reduced price don't use points & it still allows you to hunt AND buy a point for the following year.

NW Nebraska is also OTC for NR archery. The Oglala grasslands are covered in goats. Long as you arent trying to hunt during Muzzleloader you should have plenty of opportunity. We used to just road hunt til we saw a buck bedded, then parked in a depression to double back and stalk. Usually could get 5-6 stalks per day in early season.
