There aren’t many pronghorn antelope that will reach 85″ let alone 90 inches. This was a big buck we scouted, hunted & eventually helped our hunter take. We nick named him “SAMUEL” & he was a freaking slob of a pronghorn buck!
Everyone dreams of getting to hunt a 400 inch bull elk but only a few hunters actually get the opportunity. 2021 was a challenging season for everyone with an Arizona elk tag because of the winter/spring drought. The dry spell made it extra hard to find 370+ bulls, let alone 400 inch bull. So, as Jamey Finstad walked up to his monster archery elk he was in awe of the moment.
Here is some video footage captured before the hunt of "Big B":
Arizona is known for it’s large scoring pronghorn antelope but over the past 30 years human enchroachment, drought & predation have taken their toll on the over all herd. The now shrinking herd is at near RECORD lows & Arizona is offering just 378 General Pronghorn Antelope permits for the 2022 season.
In 2021 Dave Seno purchased one of Arizona’s Pronghorn Antelope Governor Tags for the 2020-21 season. His tag purchase funds went directly toward helping our pronghorn antelope populations that desperatly need all the help they can get.
We scouted all across the state & ultimately picked out a big buck we called V-man. This buck was the largest scoring buck we guided & found in 2021. We can’t thank Dave enough for his tag purchase & for hiring Team EPO to assist him on his hunt.
If you don’t have the funding to purchase a governor’s tag there are still two great ways you can apply for Arizona pronghorn hunts. You can apply for the state draw tags via the Arizona Pronghorn Draw & the Arizona Big Game Super Raffle.
