Big Game Hunting

Pronghorn antelope are the fastest ungulates in North America, capable of reaching speeds of more than 50 miles per hour.
Oregon is home to about 25,000 pronghorn.

Features: The pronghorn is deer-sized (up to 150 lbs) with relatively long and thin legs and feet, only two digits on each foot (no "dew claws"), a relatively small tail, and unique horns. Bright white sides, underside and rear end help hunters spot them in the field. 

Habitat: Pronghorn are found in the High Desert sagebrush of eastern Oregon and the Columbia Plateau.

Techniques: Most pronghorn hunts happen in August, before other big game seasons, so be ready for the High Desert’s warm summer temperatures. All pronghorn hunting is limited entry (apply by May 15) and it can take several years to draw a tag.
