Utah Antelope Hunting

 

Utah Pronghorn Antelope Hunting

Since Utah changed their management of antelope a few years back and began issuing more tags, the average size of bucks has dipped slightly across the board. However, it has not tanked and there are still some great bucks to be had. Because Utah manages their antelope hunts for 100% harvest opportunity, they are still very good hunts, but trophy quality continues to be around 65-7511 with a few exceptions. Most antelope hunts are very similar with plenty of animals and overall require patience and laying off the trigger. We have highlighted the ones we feel have a little better trophy quality, but the margin is very thin between units.

We do not list every unit in the state available to non-residents, but we have listed most units that we feel offer a great experience and good trophy potential. Harvest success typically hovers around 100%, and hunters average a couple days to get it done on most rifle hunts. One aspect that separates Utah from other states is that they try and offer opportunity for all three weapon choices in most units. The muzzleloader hunts are the biggest sleeper hunts in trophy units, especially since UDNR started allowing magnified scopes on muzzleloaders. The archery hunt in most units, surprisingly, averages a very high harvest rate as well and typically has better random draw odds than rifle.

 

Most antelope herds are at or over population objective throughout the state and seem to be holding strong despite the tag increase. All buck hunts are conducted early in the season in August and September, and outside of the archery hunt, the antelope should be rutting. If you are already applying for additional species in Utah, you should at least be building points for antelope.
