I looking for some advice for a pronghorn hunt in this area. I've not hunted there before and would like a chance at a decent buck without running into too many other hunters. Anybody out there with experience in this area? thanks for the help!
contact the Montana DNR and the can give you a list of ranchers that will let you on there land to hunt. I did this about 10 years ago near Glasgow for white tail.The guy that let us on was more than happy to let us on my buddy and I took 11 deer off there in 2 days. I havent been hunting there since. I am itchin to go antelope hunting near fort benton my wifes grand parents have a farm there. And her cousins husband owns 15,000 acres near Geraldine . Now if I could only talk her into visiting during hunting season!! she only likes to go in July.
Unless you get permision to hunt some private ground you will run into plenty of other hunters in this area,they sell tons of over the counter surplus tags in this area and the last time i went down there it looked like a scene from madmax with all the trucks flyin across the open prarie chasin the goats.If you ar e set on hunting in an area without high numbers of hunters pick any area other than the 700s.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
