ARCHERY ONLY $1750
Here is a no frills 5-day bowhunt for trophy sized
pronghorns. This rancher/outfitter runs a small personal operation in
on private property that has produced many trophy bucks. The genetics
are very good and he typically doesn’t rifle hunt these ranches, only
bowhunts. Last fall his 4 archers took 3 bucks and it looks like all
should qualify for Pope and Young. The unsuccessful hunter could only
stay for 3 days and was hampered by high winds and rain. This was the
first unsuccessful hunter in the past 4 years.
In 2012 his 9 archers took 9 pronghorn bucks,
including 6 that should make the Pope and Young record book and one may
go 80 inches. In 2011 he had
11 archers take 11 pronghorn bucks and 7 should make Pope and Young. In
2010 his 7 archers took 7 bucks, with 5 making Pope and Young and 2 more
that may qualify.
This is a no frills hunt with trailer house
accommodations, meals and guide service, all for only $1,750. Hunt dates
are August 15 to late September. Hunters need to apply for tags by June
1. Fly into Billings or Rapid
City and rent a car.
The outfitter has decided to offer a whitetail/
pronghorn archery combo hunt. Price would be $3,500 for a combo and if
you didn’t draw a pronghorn tag the deer hunt would drop to $2,800 or if
you didn’t draw the deer the pronghorn hunt would drop to $1,500.
Deer draw deadline is March 15. HCU’s Bob Wodzisz has
been on this ranch.
