Trip Taken: Archery Antelope Hunt in Montana
Consultant: Kyle Hanson, Outdoors International
The outfitter picked me up at the Hotel in Rapid City, South Dakota. They got me settled in, I shot my bow and ate dinner.
This is a Waterhole Hunt
My Montana hunting guide showed up early Sunday morning. They had my lunch, snacks, waters and coffee ready and packed for the day. We drove to the blind on a water hole the antelope were using. There was very poor cell service, so we had an orange flat to place on top the tent if we wanted out. They would glass from an elevated location from a distance to check on us throughout the day. It was kind of a mind game sitting from dawn to dark each day especially without cell service.
Antelope Came in for Water Every Day
On the second to last day of my Montana antelope hunt, I had a shooter come in and I got a shot. It was a little back, so we waited several hours. We found him dead about 100 yards from the blind. We got my buck gutted, and the guides hung it over night to cool. In the morning we took it to the processor.
They took me to the airport the next day for my flight home. Good people and well organized pronghorn antelope hunt.

Our hunt was excellent.
We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.
What an amazing experience!
The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
