    So your telling me that an animal scientifically named antelocapra americana is not an antelope?

    A the mountain goat, chamois, tahr and muskox are technically antelope as well.

    This must be a regional thing. Kind of like how people from the south count every point on antlers.

    When I am hunting deer in antelope country or antelope in deer country, I use the term "goat" to distinguish an antelope buck from other deer. I know it is not correct but it saves confusion in the field.

    I totally get that. For me it is the general use of the word instead of Pronghorn or Antelope.

    The pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) is a species of artiodactyl mammal endemic to interior western and central North America. Though not an antelope, it is often known colloquially in North America as the prong buck, pronghorn antelope, or simply antelope,[3] as it closely resembles the true antelopes of the Old World and fills a similar ecological niche due to convergent evolution.[4] It is the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae.[5] During the Pleistocene period, 12 antilocaprid species existed in North America.[6] About five existed when humans entered North America[citation needed] and all but A. americana are now extinct.[5]

    That is directly from wikipedia.... but I also still call them antelope.
