Big Mac, don’t downgrade the antelope hunt as an inferior option to elk. Antelope are awesome animals and some of the absolute best meat (and I’ve eaten a lot of different species).
Wyoming is the place to go. They are abundant and there are tons of public land options.
They’re a relatively easy animal to hunt. Yes, their eyes are incredible, but they either disregard or have a poor sense of smell. I’ve hunted them into 60 mph winds blowing right at them. Their eyes are so sensitive that they don’t want to look into the wind, making stalks pretty easy if they don’t see you.
Spend some time behind your binoculars in an area where you can see a long ways. Observe their behavior and make a plan to get close. Don’t think of them as being white tails. They’re a very different animal.
Again, I can’t say enough about the quality of the meat. It’s imperative that you get them cooled down immediately and in coolers. Do not overcook it. In my opinion, it’s better than elk or white tail.
