Another popular big game animal in Utah is the pronghorn, a spritely-hoofed mammal that lives in local deserts, grasslands and sagebrush regions. Active during the day, if you see one you will see many, as they prefer to live in small herds. The fastest land mammal in the new world, gives birth to two kids in the spring. A growing favorite for hunters, getting their antlers is more difficult than getting those of the mule deer, since pronghorn keep their horns and only shed the sheaths each year. Look for these primarily in the Awapa Plateau, known to locals as Parker Mountain, where, at 7,000 feet above sea level, a high desert plateau supports a quarter million acres of contiguous sagebrush.
