2010 Montana Archery Antelope Hunt – VIDEO

Pronghorn at sunset

The learning curve in hunting as an archer is steep.  Many seasons of spot and stalk techniques have left me close but empty handed. After years of hard work and persistence, I was fortunate enough to harvest my first Pronghorn Antelope with archery equipment.  This short video documents my first two weeks of the season – from stalk to harvest. Enjoy!

    I can’t be the only one who was curious as to how you got the pack with the entire antelope onto your back from the ground?

      There is certainly a learned technique, Jay! While sitting on the ground I put the shoulder straps on then roll over onto my stomach and get into the push up or prone position. From here it’s much easier to stand as you have four limbs to support the weight. Once up, I secure the waist belt. Rolling over is always easier when you’ve got an incline to work with.

      Thanks for commenting!
