Montana Antelope Hunts
Montana offers some great pronghorn antelope hunting opportunities for rifle or archery antelope hunters. Antelope hunts can also be combined with a mule deer or whitetail hunt.
Hunt Areas & Trophy Quality
We operate on private ranch leases near Miles City in eastern Montana, these properties offer quality antelope hunting opportunities. Most hunters have taken pronghorns ranging from 12 to 16 inches, including several record-class bucks.
Shot opportunity has been 100% nearly every year. Rifle shots often range from 100 to 300 yards so sight rifles dead on at 200 yards. Bow hunters should practice from 20 to 60 yards.
The best rifle hunting method involves glassing herds of antelope until the right buck is spotted, then a stalk is planned to get within range for the shot. Archery hunting is mostly done at waterholes and feeding areas in blinds placed at prime locations
Archery antelope hunting starts August 15 and runs into November 8. Rifle season opens in early October and runs to November 8. Rifle antelope and deer combo hunts are available in late October and early November.
Archery Antelope hunting is best early in the season from August 15 to mid September while the weather is hot and bucks are visiting waterholes or when the bucks are rutting in September. Rifle hunting is good anytime during the season. Many years we have taken the largest bucks of the season in the first week of November.
Motel (Town Hunts): Stay in town near restaurants and shopping. Hunters pay for their choice of rooms and meals. Guides will pick up and return hunters to their room each day. Remember to budget $80-$150 per day for your room and meals.
