ANTELOPE HUNTING IN WYOMING
We have a 100% success rate for our antelope hunts. Peak Adventures, L.L.C specializes in antelope hunting. We hunt the largest pronghorn antelope herd in the United States, the Pumpkin Butte Antelope Herd. You will literally see hundreds of antelope every day. These antelope roam the open prairie and use their eye sight to detect danger creating a unique challenge to hunters. In one of our areas you are allowed to harvest two bucks (one trophy, one management), and four does.
Distance in this vast country can be deceiving. Be sure to practice long range shots and buy the best range finder you can afford. We like to get our clients within 200 yards for an ethical harvest but this is not always the case. These bucks average 14 inches with some going as long as 16 inches.
Our archery antelope hunts are the best available. Most of these hunts are conducted by a waterhole with the use of a ground blind or tree stand. If that isn’t challenging enough and you want more actions, we can accommodate you with a rut hunt. During the rut these bucks are in fierce competition for territory and does.
There is nothing like a rutting antelope coming in hard and fast to a decoy. It is an amazing adrenaline rush!
We also offer a management antelope hunts. Management antelope have genetic traits that we do not find desirable. The price for a management antelope hunt is considerably less. You can combine a management antelope with any full price hunt.
Seven Reasons to Hunt Antelope in Wyoming
Numbers – The population of antelope almost exceeds the human population of Wyoming. Wyoming has more antelope than any other state in the Union. Hunting where there are a lot of antelope allows you to be more selective and your odds of harvesting an antelope is greater.
Trophy Antelope Hunting – Wyoming has more Boone and Crocket entries for antelope than any other state. Peak Adventures is located near the town Gillette, in Campbell County, which ranks as the fifth highest B&C trophy antelope producing counties in Wyoming.
Drawing Odds - If you didn’t draw the species you had hoped for, don’t worry, Wyoming is very liberal with their non-residence antelope licenses. The area that Peak Adventures hunts always has left over licenses that can be purchased over the counter.
Seasons – The antelope seasons in our area is very liberal. Archery antelope season runs from August 15th – September 30th. Rifle antelope season runs from October 1st – October 31st.
Options – Bow or Rifle? Wyoming is one of the few states that allow a hunter to hunt antelope with archery equipment or a rifle on the same tag. If you are bow hunting for antelope and aren’t successful then you can use your tag during the antelope rifle hunting season. Or if you were able to make it to Wyoming during the archery season and you’re a diehard archery hunter then you can hunt antelope with your bow during rifle season.
Party Permits – If you have a group of people that want to antelope hunt in Wyoming then make it a party. Wyoming has “party applications” that allow a group to enter as one so that everyone in the group is guaranteed to get a tag if successful in the Wyoming draw. The maximum party allowed is six members.
Cost – When going on a hunt, every penny counts. Wyoming has tags for whatever your budget is. Antelope hunting has a reasonable cost associated with the sport. It’s especially good to bring youth on an antelope hunt because of the cost and you see antelope all of the time. This helps keep the youth engaged in the hunt.
The pronghorn antelope is not really an antelope, but the sole descendent of an ancient deer-like family. Pronghorns are the fastest mammals on foot in the Western Hemisphere, capable of sprints up to 97 kilometers (60 miles) per hour. They carry the only forked horns in the world, and the only horns that are shed annually. Both genders have horns although the males are much bigger than the female's. With a field of vision that is nearly 360 degrees and extremely efficient circulatory and respiratory systems, they can detect predators and escape from them by running at high speed for extended periods.
Aplication dates are January 1st - March 15th. Results will be posted by June 30th. Peak Adventures, L.L.C. will take care of license applications once a deposit has been made.
