A truly North American native species, the pronghorn is the sole survivor of a prehistoric group of ungulates that populated North America as long a 2 million years ago. The pronghorn was here before other game animals and humans crossed the Bering land bridge. The pronghorn is fast, able to achieve speeds of up to 60mph and able to maintain speeds of 40 to 50 mph for several miles. While it doesn’t take cover, it is constantly on the alert and stealth and patience is vital to get within shooting range especially when hunting with muzzleloaders or bow.
