Pronghorn Antelope are a true symbol of the American West. These speed goats are one of the fastest land animals on the continent and this low impact hunt offers sportsman one of the highest success rates of any big game species we offer. Our operation has had a 100% harvest rate since our inception in 1994 on trophy quality Pronghorn Antelope bucks. The genetics of these Pronghorn are some of the best in this region and with continued good moisture will keep producing exceptional Pronghorn Antelope hunting season after season. Our two private ranches are located in Mora and Colfax Counties encompassing 107,000 acres of private land with high numbers in conjunction with unsurpassed trophy potential. This area has produced more Boone & Crockett entries into the record book than any other area in the state without exception.
"The guides have been super to hunt with, know the areas we hunted well, and are excellent judges of the game animals."
Hunts are conducted safari style covering extremely large tracts of land, with some in excess of 100 square miles in size. Glassing over numerous herds of Pronghorn Antelope daily is the objective - looking for a mature buck with good length, mass and prongs. Clients can expect to see good antelope densities on this hunt and seeing 100-150 antelope daily is common, with about a third being pronghorn bucks. We are very selective which bucks are harvested because the difference in an average Pronghorn Antelope versus a trophy is a matter of a few inches. Clients can expect bucks in the 14" to 16 ½" range, and although not common, a handful pushing the 17"+ have been harvested the past few years. Elevations are 4000 feet to 5500 feet on most of our antelope hunting leases with temperatures in August and September ranging from 30F to 85F.
We have a first class chuck wagon cook on site where we base our antelope hunting camp and a taxidermist on site to properly handle fleshing and salting of capes during your Antelope hunt. Clients typically stay in a comfortable historic motel, which is only a 10-minute drive from our hunting base camp. Lunch is served on site at ranch and breakfast and dinner is served in town where you will be staying.
"Good outfitters are tough to find, yet Hunter Ross is one of the best guides I have hunted with and has some of the best areas to be found anywhere. Thanks again and I look forward to the next one with Desert Safaris."
