Wonderful Wyoming, “Where the deer and the antelope play…” indeed! Antelope are the second fastest land animal (running up to 61 miles/hour), antelope can out-sprint predators; perhaps this is why Wyoming has an abundance of these animals. We are one of the few states that does not require a preference point to draw. Due to their speed and endurance, our antelope hunts have been described as an “exciting adrenaline rush”. This is not to say that Antelope don’t stop to eat and drink. When archery hunting, you can test your “ninja” skills of spotting and stocking, or you have the option of “staking out” from a ground blind, where you can get up close and personal. Either way, your odds of harvesting a beautiful 70-inch+ buck are better than great! The majority of our archery hunters have gone home with their trophy making Pope and Young. The buck Antelope has unique black facial features and heart-shaped horns make for beautiful mount!
