John Sullivan, Archery Antelope Hunt Report
My outfitter provided a very comfortable camp environment with single and double “cabins” in a cluster with a central community room area where meals are served, libations enjoyed, and stories are exchanged.
Archery hunting for pronghorn in a blind can be arduous, but the quantity of mule deer and antelope arriving to the watering hole does break the tedium. Being very selective allowed me to arrow a Pope and Young buck on the third evening of a three day hunt with 15 minutes left of shooting light.
An 80 inch buck was seen, but did not come to water and if I wanted to arrow a 60-65 inch “representative of the species” animal I could have tagged-out within 4 hours of arrival! Being very selective, I was the last to complete the 100% success for our group of about 10 rifle hunters and three bowhunters. Nobody can guarantee a trophy at every visit, but the sheer volume of animals does offer a wide selection.
- Overall, my trip was a great experience.
- My outfitter’s communication before, during and after the trip was good.
- My guide was amazing.
- Physically, the trip was easy.
- The food and accommodations were amazing.
Casey Jensen was my consultant and provided more information and clarity than the actual outfitter was able to communicate. The outfitter is a man of few words and freely admits he would prefer Casey to field the calls, concerns, questions.
Casey was very knowledgeable about this hunt. His communication before, during and after the trip was perfect, I couldn’t have asked for more. Expecting a baby and having recently moved, Casey still fielded my calls and concerns and was as knowledgeable and far more informative than the actual outfitter.
