PRONGHORN

“Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, ……. and the deer and the antelope play!!”

Well the antelope or pronghorn as they are known weren’t actually playing. At this time the males are more often than not fighting. Most of the shots you see below were taken outside the Park in the vicinity of Gardiner, Montana.  Without a doubt, it is the North American species that most reminds me of animals in Africa.

I did see many in the Antelope Flats area of Wyoming, however the tall grasses there prevented many a good shot as the pronghorn were half hidden.

Battle royal!!
