+About Hunting Pronghorn

 Pronghorns have excellent eyesight. Often called “speed goats,” pronghorn will run up to 55 miles an hour when alarmed. Hunting them requires using the natural contours of the land to stalk close enough for a shot. Decoys are also productive, especially for archery hunting. In some areas, especially where animals are accustomed to seeing people and vehicles, hunters will drive along roads to spot pronghorn and glass. Once an appropriate animal is found, the hunters stalk on foot and set up for a shot. Hunters should be proficient shooting at least 300 to 400 yards with a rifle. A rangefinder is handy when hunting pronghorn.
