Archery antelope seasons open across the West this month. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Pronghorn antelope are the most underrated big-game species in the country. This week on Realtree's Outpost podcast, I sat down with my longtime hunting buddy Miles Fedinec to talk goats.

Miles has been antelope hunting since he was a kid, and guiding pronghorn hunters for the better part of the past 20 years. These days, Miles guides for Double H Outfitters in Craig, Colorado. I've hunted that area with him extensively, and there are a bunch of critters—and some big ones, too. This season, Miles has also drawn an archery antelope tag in a coveted unit in Wyoming that he knows well. We're going to talk about that, as well as tips on field-judging antelope, making the shot on jittery bucks over water holes, keeping your sanity during an all-day sit, and more. We'll also switch gears a bit and talk about the ongoing drought out West, and how it's shaping up to affect the hunting season this fall.
