Freaking exciting to hear that there could be some WA born antelope! I hope to get out this summer and photo them...

thanks for all of the updates. Due to some really nice weather there may be a chance the surveys might just take place in the next 2 weeks and as early as next week. It appears WDFW has been working on some moose surveys but due to lack of snow they are having difficulty locating them so me might just step up our survey. At least the wolves haven't ate our antelope so we should be able to find them. I will keep you posted as to when, so you can let me know what you are seeing out there. Thanks again.

SURVEY DATE has been set for Feb 25th nad 26th of next week. That will be a Wednesday and a Thursday. Our intention is to do both ground surveys and airial useing a fixed wing flying transect throughout the release area. Any current sightings would greatly be appreciated as we intend to have individuals on the ground watching these one just to see if the plane actually spots them. You folks have supplied alot of good information in the past few weeks since I made this post and it is greatly appreciated. Anything you see now with close locations and numbers would be greatly appreciated. PM have also work well and if a couple people would like to help out with this just let me know and I will fill you in.

Saw a pretty good buck yesterday that had 10 does with him.  Appears the rut is about to kick in.....

   please don't tell any location on this site.  poachers have eyes and ears and will shoot anything.  pm is the way to go if you want.  I am not telling you what to do , just saying.  antelope have been poached way to much.  part of the problem is one person can carry one on his/hers shoulders and they are gone.   thanks,  mike w

Saw a smaller buck in the same spot today.  He had a foe with him and was keeping her all to himself.  Lots of running to prevent her from getting back to the herd

Nice to see this tread is still going. We did not manage to do a survey last winter but do have in the plans to do another one this winter if conditions permit. Things are looking pretty good for it. WDFW has agree to head up the survey again with the use of an airplane to fly on a grid system. WDFW has also agree to fund the cost of their personal and plane. Is nice to know there is actually a pronghorn account now to work on this project. Not sure when the date will be however I assume the next 2 months. One thing we like to do is have a few individuals on the ground watching particular groups, to confirm that the plane doesn't miss them. If it does then it will help give a percent error on our counts.
If possible and if anyone has any information on their locations it would be great if you could PM me with that information. Also if you would like to participate on the ground let me know and I will see what can be arranged even though we do not have a date set.
Thanks

I saw 20 or so last week.  But...don't think they're in a spot people are unaware of.

Joe-
Is the survey likely to happen on a weekday or weekend?
I'd be interested in coming over but would likely only be able to do it if it was a weekend.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
