07 pronghorn

I have never been pronghorn hunting, heck I have never been west of Alabama, but I am planning on a do it yourself bowhunt somewher outwest. Pronghorn seem to be the logical choice for a first time trip. I would love to go for elk but I worry about getting one out if I were lucky enough to harvest one and can't afford a guide, so I am open to any and all suggestions. I will have a hunting partner and plan on camping. I have heard about the BLM land and have received a list of landowners in Wyoming and Nebraska(one of the only over the counter archery pronghorn states), which has only made my decision harder. As I said any and all suggestions would be appreciated and please be specific as possible. Thanks in advance.

Well I have never hunted goats in Nebraska but Wyoming has the biggest antelope population bar none. I have never had a problem drawing there....you have a good chance of drawing if you look at the stats and pick your zones.

I could be wrong but I think there are over the counter archery antelope tags in North Dakota as well.

Thanks for the advice, Wyoming seems to be the place. Any specific areas or zones to concentrate on?

I hunted Antelope around Gillette a few years ago, lots and lots of antelope. The odds of getting drawn were excellent. The only problem around there is land access.
