First Pronghorn

There's nothing quite like your first one.

There is nothing like your first species, and when it's unlike anything you've done before, it's especially memorable.

Think about your first grouse, your first duck, your first whitetail. It's almost surreal isn't it? And when you're mentoring someone who's experiencing it, that feeling comes back as you see it through their eyes.

For Dave Maas it's a trip to Wyoming, where he's been before, but on a very different type of hunt. This time it's a waterhole set up for pronghorn, and since he's using his bow, it requires patience and skill as these antelope are on their guard. He has the benefit of a guide to help him judge animals and the potential these open plains offer.

As he finds out, that potential is immense.
