What time of the day are pronghorn most active

What time of the day are pronghorn most active? I'm use to hunting whitetails, which are most active early in the morning to right before dark. Are they anything like whitetails? Any thoughts?

During the rut, they are active all day. They very seldom will move much at night. When it's hot they can come to water anytime of the day.

I have seen them bed down in a grassy slough in the middle of the day with lookouts. At least locally I think most are shot (post rut, mid-late Oct.) in the morning, if that helps.

I live in the middle of pronghorn country. They do not have the same habits as deer. They can be seen browsing almost any time of the day during daylight hours. The only time I see them take cover is when its very hot, then I would look for them by water.

Pronghorn do not move around after dark. Don't know why, but I've never seen them - and have never run into one after dark on the road, unlike deer, who seem to be much more active from dusk and into the dark hours.
