The entire antelope population in our area experienced a big hit with the harsh winter of 2011/2012, resulting in a mass die off.  It's taken a few years but we feel like the numbers have finally stabilized and are back on the rise.  We are very close to being back to the thriving population of a few years ago and have been harvesting some good bucks the last couple seasons.  This is a special permit applications are due by June 1, the deer and antelope season overlap for roughly two weeks and makes for a great opportunity to do a combo hunt.
