Got a buddy turning 40 next year and want to take him on a one of his dream hunts - Proghorn in Colorado! Would be the fall of 2022. Wanting to start planning things now.

Looking for advice, guide recommendations, general feedback, etc. If anyone has done this hunt in CO before, please let me know and if you got any tips or connections, I would greatly appreciate them!

Thx

I have a really nice pronghorn from Colorado unit 67. It’s really a lot of glassing long distances from the truck until you find the right buck to go after. I wouldn’t say it’s the most exciting hunting, but I certainly would recommend it at least once. I know some people like the meat, but if they are eating sage, it’s not very tasty eating.

This pretty much sums it up right here

Also look into Wyoming, lots of speed goats there


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Also, I have guide and land connections if you were interested in that unit.

Without points you will have to buy a landowner tag. Just curious, Why not go for Wyoming? Wyoming has more pronghorn than any other state.

Gringo - any connections would be greatly appreciated.

Wyoming might work out just as fine as CO. Landowner tags would be fine. My buddy just shared an idea of a hunt he always wanted to go on, and just starting to get some ideas stirring around in my brain and his. If y’all have Wyoming contacts, feedback, that would be cool, also.

Thx

I actually prefer antelope over deer (love deer hunting too though). You don’t have to get up in the middle of the night to hunt them. They move all day long. I prefer archery over rifle but rifle is fun too. At times with a rifle it kind of becomes a test of your marksmanship rather than your hunting skills. Beautiful animals make excellent mounts. As regards the meat,you need to skin the animal immediately where legal and get it on ice ASAP. I usually get it done in about 30 minutes and find the backstraps to be as good or better than any other game animal. Before I learned how to do that myself, I took them to the locker and didn’t enjoy the meat much.

You'll need PP for Wyoming probably and maybe for Colorado too unless you can find a landowner tag and good luck with that. Wyoming does not allow landowner tag transfer.
Pronghorn hunting has become very popular and this year Wyoming has drastic tag cuts in some Eastern areas of the state that could be drawn with 0 PP last year.

The meat is excellent unless you chase them all over the country then shoot one. They mainly feed on forbes but use sage over winter.

A Wyoming hunt would a a classic pronghorn hunt, many animals to look over and varied scenery.
NM would be your best bet for a trophy without PP and the Grimmets are the outfitters for big pronghorn, Pronghorn Guide Service.

With PP Wyoming can be a blast to come hunt. Lots of animals, easy to fill a tag in the right areas and a great time to come up and do some trout fishing as well. Doe tags are very cheap in Wyoming also.

Draw odds increase/decrease with weapon changes in CO.

Navasto killed a stud 80” with his bow. PM Gavin

If you are considering guided I’d just pm jeremyks and book in NM or TX with sagebrush


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes
