California is not typically considered a place to hunt pronghorn antelope, but there are still healthy herds in the northeastern part of the state. Each year, a few lucky hunters chosen by California Department of Fish and Wildlife lottery, have the chance to hunt the many good-size bucks on the rolling,-covered hills of Clear Lake National Wildlife Refuge. There are several good roads around the 20,000-acre refuge for scouting, but hunting is walk-in only. The rolling hills may look easy to walk, but uneven terrain and a plethora of rocks can make stalking pronghorn difficult. Hunters still have a very good chance of taking a pronghorn, with hunt success rates above 80 percent.
