Searing Pronghorn

All your practice comes down to an adrenaline fix after days in the searing heat.

It's early season for pronghorn near Broadus, Montana, and Mark Kayser has his bow in hand. This is among his favorite playgrounds, and the groups of antelope gather near the horizon.

The searing heat has him thankful for his blind, and the prongs are grateful for the water given the dry conditions. Heat like this can make it difficult to be patient, but Mark knows the potential for this area. So he waits.

The does and fawns are thick but few shooters have come into bow range.  After three sweltering days he has his chance at a buck.
