About Us

Pronghorn Pride website is owned and operated by Firelight Business Enterprises Inc. Content has been assembled and created by Kevin Wheeler, a principle share holder in the corporation.

Kevin Wheeler, his wife Laura, and their varying numbers of children had lived in Medicine Bow, Wyoming, for fifteen years. Their growing appreciation of the state and it's resources prompted the creation of this website.

We became members of the Mule Deer Foundation because Mule Deer and Pronghorn share the same habitat, and there are no significant Pronghorn preservation groups.

Pronghorn Life Cycle

Pronghorn DoeAbout late Summer, or early Fall, male pronghorn begin to gather in their harem of does. Herds or harems can be just about any size, from about four to five with one buck, to 20 or so. The larger herds will have more than one buck. It is more unusual to see the larger herds, especially in the Spring and Summer, but the antelope do gather into larger groups in the Winter.

Fawn are born in May or June, with the large majority of births being twins. Pronghorn fawns do not have spots, like deer do. But they will lie still in the prairie grass for several hours, if not days. This motionlessness is their main defense against predators, such as coyotes, bobcats, and eagles. The light brown coloring allows them to blend in well with the browns of the dry prairie grasses and sage brush. Less than half of the fawns that are born in June will live until the middle of July. In the wild, it is estimated that antelope can live up to 10 years. Antelope have been known to live up to twelve years in captivity.

Species that prey on antelope are mainly coyotes. Wolves and bobcats also prey on pronghorn antelope. Fawns have been known to have been taken by Golden Eagles.

Pronghorn Neck Roast

My favorite "goat" recipe:

1 whole pronghorn neck roast
1 pkg Lipton's dry onion soup mix
1 C. water
potatoes and carrots as desired

Place the roast in a large crock pot
sprinkle soup mix over, pour in water and surround with vegetables. Put the lid on and leave it alone for 12 hours. I've had them fighting over second helpings.
