Pronghorn numbers rising in SW Montana
Pronghorn populations small but rising on this side of Divide, and hunting can be a challenge even where animals are abundant. By Rob Chaney. Missoulian
I think they are down just across the state boundary in Idaho.

I like the last quote of this article “You’ve got to demonstrate good hunting skills to get within 100 yards of an animal that can see a mile out,” Vinkey said. “Their speed and vision – what they’ve evolved to – was developed as a defense strategy against predators from the Ice Age, most of which are extinct. They outlived the predators they were built to outrace.”
Somehow, though, I wonder if this man would find a way to complain about wolves…
My “next door nieghbor has about 1280 acres that he lets hunter onto for hunting. About 3 weeks ago, he let a group who were using pickup trucks to herd the pronghorn into shallow ravine where they shot the animals.
To me, this is not hunting, but willful slaughter of wildlife. To complain to Colorado Division of Wildlife is fruitless and the waste of a phone call. And people wonder why some of us are anti-hunters.
That’s not hunting, that’s trash.
