  • STRAIGHT ARROW: Bowhunting pronghorn antelope

    On Aug. 22, my son Eric and I left home and headed for Wyoming to bowhunt the pronghorn antelope. Planning this trip started in March when we had to apply for our license. Then it got serious when we found out we drew our pronghorn tags in July.

    On the 22nd we left at 5 a.m. and arrived in Douglas, Wyoming, just after midnight where we got a room for the rest of the night. We got up early so we could make the 50-mile drive north to be at the ranch at sunrise and get started hunting.
