In this Into the Outdoors @Home video, we follow Tylynn and her mentor, Katelyn, as they go on Tylynn’s first hunt. Their prey is the Pronghorn, an antelope-like creature that lives in small herds in Wyoming. One Pronghorn can provide up to 80 pounds of meat. There are more of them in Wyoming than any other state. They spook easily, and are able to roam in open areas, due to their ability to run faster than any predator on the continent. It can be nearly impossible to sneak up on a group of Pronghorn. A hunter must move toward the animals in the field without stirring up their flight response, causing them to run away from perceived danger. As you’ll see, Tylynn’s first hunt is filled with challenges, adventure, lots of learning, and a ton of excitement!
