Potential New Record Montana Pronghorn
The Helena Independent Record has an article running about Kody Baker and his record book antelope that he took near east Helena. The buck has not been offically recognized by Pope and Young yet, but it dry scores at 86, which is a bit more than the 84 2/8 that has stood since 1989.
When Kody Baker came home from work ... his neighbor called to say some antelope in a field near their East Helena homes were acting kind of funny. So Baker, who had a hunting blind nearby, grabbed his bow and went to check them out. By the time he got home a few hours later, Baker had scratches from belly-crawling 400 yards through a newly cut wheat field and what he believes is the new state record for a pronghorn antelope shot with a bow.
