The Nebraska Archery Antelope Hunt:
Our antelope hunting terrain features rolling hills, open prairies, crop fields to spring bottoms.
Early season or Rut guided or semi-guided antelope crossbow or archery hunts are conducted by using decoys, sitting in blinds by waterholes, near alfalfa fields or fence crossings. All of these methods have produced well but antelope decoying during the late September antelope rut is probably the most popular.
Antelope Hunting is all on private ranches.
Shots average 35-40 yards with 15 yards being a close shot. Hunters using flat shooting bows that can hit out to 60+ yards will bump the odds in their favor.
Antelope Bucks taken are typically in the 13 to 16 inch range.
Includes meals, lodging, guide-2 hunters / 1 guide, trophy field care and transportation of meats and mounts to processing plant.
Hunters normally rotate by having one antelope hunter doing a spot and stalk or decoy hunt with the guide while the others stand hunt.
