SD antelope hunting offers very high opportunity rates and excellent trophy quality, especially when you’re hunting with this outfitter. This is one of the best shots you have at bagging the fastest animal in the Americas.
You can usually afford to be picky when hunting pronghorn antelope in South Dakota. It’s common to see herds of up to 100 pronghorns wandering wild over the hills; if none of the specimens in one herd seem to offer a worthwhile trophy, the outfitter can simply lead you a little farther to find the next group. You’ll have access to tens of thousands of acres of leased and private land, so you should always be able to find a satisfying trophy.
Because there are almost always antelope to be found in any direction, this is an excellent hunt to bring the kids along for, as there’s almost always something going on. The outfitter is happy to take on young hunters.
A CHALLENGING HUNT
Pronghorns are fast; you’ll need to avoid startling them to get a decent shot. This outfitter offers a wide range of hunting styles to help you get close: spot-and-stalk is the most popular, with most shots being taken at 200 yards; for archery hunter, spot-and-stalk is much more challenging but still viable; other options include using decoys and setting up blinds near antelope crossings and water tanks.
Archery tags are guaranteed; the bow hunting season begins in late August.
Bucks taken here average about 14-15 inches in horn length and score an average of 72 inches. Hunters with this outfitter have bagged bucks with horns up to 17” long.
