I'm in the midst of a filming project in my Wyoming backyard. To bring my series Extreme Pursuits down to earth we're filming on public land for pronghorn and deer. Yesterday I wrapped my tag around a plump public land pronghorn early on the hunt.
After scouting for a day and a half and putting the spotting scope on more than 100 pronghorn a lightning fast opportunity played out right in front of me. Several bucks slipped through a saddle next to my position and with some quick maneuvering and a short belly crawl I ended my pronghorn quest with a 287-yard shot.
The buck wasn't a giant, but definitely a contender on public land, especially when you consider the season has been open for more than a month. I was pleased with the buck and happy to have some more meat in the freezer.
My next target is a mule deer, but the forecast is turning foul and I'll keep you posted if the rain and mud puts a limit on my hiking abilities.
Sorry guys. I beat you to this one on public land, but you can watch it on Extreme Pursuits!
