Shot Opportunity

Shooting opportunity has been 100% nearly every year. Rifle shots often range from 100 to 300 yards so sight rifles dead on at 200 yards. Bow hunters should practice from 20 to 50 yards. Most hunters are amazed at the high number of animals seen on these hunts and many can hardly wait to come back the following year.

Trophy Quality

Most hunters have taken pronghorns ranging from 13 to 16+ inches, including many record-class bucks.

Hunting Areas

We operate exclusively on private property in Central and Eastern Montana.  We lease thousands of acres of private ranch lands to ensure quality antelope hunting.

Hunting Methods

When rifle hunting we usually glass herds of antelope with spotting scopes and binoculars until we find the right buck. Then we make a stalk to get within range for the shot. Archery hunting is mostly done at waterholes and feeding areas in blinds placed at prime locations. Another exciting archery tactic is to decoy antelope bucks in close for a bow shot. When they’re hot, the bucks may run to within 10 yards of the waiting bow hunter. That’s an exciting experience!!!

Antelope Seasons

Archery antelope hunting starts August 15 and runs into November. Rifle Season opens in early October and runs into November. Rifle antelope and deer combo hunts are available in late October and early November.

Best Time

Archery Antelope hunting is best early in the season from August 15 to mid September while the weather is hot and bucks are visiting waterholes or when the bucks are rutting in September. Rifle hunting is good anytime during the season. Many years we have taken the largest bucks of the season in the first week of November.

Guiding Options

Several guide ratios are offered that include guiding, transportation during the hunt, and game care.


Motel “Town Hunts”: Stay in town near restaurants and shopping. Motels are a short drive from most hunt areas. Hunters pay for their choice of room and meals. Guides pick up and return hunters to their room each day. Budget $50-$75 per day for meals and shared room.

Temperature and Weather

August is quite warm with daytime temps often 70 to 95 degrees. September and October may frost at night, but days often warm up to 40 to 80 degrees. Late October and November temps often range from 0 to 50 degrees and snow is possible. Check current weather forecasts on the Montana Home Page before leaving for your hunt.

What's Not Included

Taxidermy, meat processing, licenses, motel room, restaurant meals, gratuities, and any other items not listed as being included. Bring your personal gear, snacks, drinks, and a sleeping bag, and pad if camping.
