    Passed this buck at 20 yards from my blind. Passed on a few others with the hopes of shooting one of the two 15+" bucks I saw.

    I had a friend out there that killed a big boy in 09. But he passed away last fall. He always wanted me to hunt that unit and see me take a pronghorn with my bow. But he didn't get to see it.

    Story on that buck.

    I got to a new waterhole on the last day and had to set up my blind. As I approached it at 6:00 am this buck and two does and a fawn were about 500 yards away and walking away from it. I'm guessing they had either just drank or were in the area of the waterhole all night long. I set up my Primos Double Bull blind as fast as I could with them only 500-600 yards away. Then never saw me, which is amazing. Once I got into the blind I noticed they were heading out, but I knew based on how hot and dry it was and how often that buck was pissing (typical pronghorn territorial behavior...peeing every 5 minutes) he'd be back at some point that day.

    Well he made it back, but I had to set there for 14 hours. When he came in he approached my blind and crossed right in front of me at 7 yards. I made the faintest squeak to get him to stop and he bolted to 21 yards. He was quartering to me and I hate that shot, but I released and drove a G5 Montec as deep as I could. He ran quite a ways (400 yards), but we recovered him and was happy to have him after sitting in a blind for 10-14 hours every day for 8 days straight.

    I was really shocked at how spooky these bucks were of the blinds. This buck had no clue my blind was there due to junipers, but in most every other spot we hunted they would not make the last 100 yards. We had another buddy in the eastern part of NV and he set his blind up 10 yards from a pond and killed a buck. Last year in WY we sat up next to a waterhole without a blind and after we shot two bucks we had to chase off the other ones. This pict is 20 mins after we shot two bucks! They wouldn't leave and kept coming in. I think this was happening because we found a secluded water hole and these lopes rarely if ever see anyone.

    Here's a couple of the previous blind set-ups in NV that spooked the lopes.

    Antelope are nervous by nature, anything new or out of place will get there attention in a hurry. My first choice of blinds is a "semi natural pit blind" like the one shown. These blinds are there all year long and there is nothing new or out of place as far as the animals are concerned. In the second pic you can see the blind in the background.
