Whats the closest shot you have ever had on a P ronghorn? Because of Pronghorns weary nature i think it is neat when guys get real close to them. My closest shot ever was 9 yards.

Passed on some water hole/blind setups of less than 10 yards. But closest kill was about 22 yards.

Took a doe with my muzzy in 10' at about 40 yards or so.

35 yards was my closest, but that was spot and stalk. My sons' tipped a few over under 10, but was in a blind. Great antelope Evan.

I put a stalk on a goat once, thinking that I would pop over a ridge about 100 yards from him. While I was en route, he moved down the ridge and was only about 20 yards from me when I poked my head over. I didn't have my rifle ready, but I still got him at about 150 yards when he stopped to look back!

Less than 5 yards. That doe tried to walk between my blind and a waterhole. No problem putting a pin on her.

This doe was taken less than 20 yards.



This one, about 45 minutes later, at the same distance.

Missed one this past season in Idaho at 12 yards after a very long stalk. I just totally blew it!

Missed another one in KS after an awesome decoy set-up. We had something like 6-8 bucks come running at the decoy, shot for about 20 yards, he was closer and the arrow went over his back.

I think I have the worst luck with Pronghorn's. One of these years I might just get to punch my tag and put one on the wall.

About 30 yards on a stalk. Have been within 30-40 yards quite a few times, but getting a shot off is another story!
