The Father-Son Hunt

Posted by Dave Allee on


Like sons for many generations before me, few things excite me quite like the prospect of going hunting with my Father. Growing up in a town that few would consider to be a hunting town, our opportunities to go afield have been relatively limited.  In fact, town isn't even a fair description- we live in a city.  A city surrounded by other cities. Heading to Wyoming in pursuit of Pronghorn was the result of many years of us reading, scheming, dreaming and planning our eventual pursuit. (More on that in Part 1 of my Pronghorn Hunt story) October 1, 2016 I tagged out fairly early in the morning, and we made the hour-long return trip to camp to hang my...

Pronghorn Hunt 2016 | Part 2

Posted by Dave Allee on


Landing in Casper, WY was the culmination of many months of dreaming and planning and practicing; but it was also the very beginning of an entirely new shared experience for my Dad and I. We came into the trip knowing that we would see a lot of game, but I don't think anything could have prepared us for just how many Pronghorn we would see.   Jason Hill from SNS Outfitter picked us up from the Casper Airport in his pickup truck, and before we could even get to the highway to head towards camp, we were already seeing herds of antelope hanging out on every third hillside. We were pleased to learn that there would only be four hunters...

Hiding a Bison Herd

Posted by Dave Allee on


While visiting Wyoming a week or so ago, we headed out on a drive, in search of bison. We had heard that the herd frequented the Gros Ventre, working their way down from further North near the Parks.  As we approached Kelly, WY, my wife spotted a few black beetles on the horizon. When I say on the horizon, I mean way, way out there.   We were trying to devise a way to get out in their direction, and close the distance on the formless black shapes. We turned off the pavement onto a dirt track that followed a line of telephone poles, hoping it would connect through somewhere that wouldn't leave us stranded in the sagebrush. As we...

Pronghorn Slip

This Pronghorn buck grew tired of us watching him, so he gave us the slip through the sagebrush.
