Attention Antelope Hunters;

An error was made in the 2006 antelope hunting season. There is an
overlap of one day between the Archery Antelope season and the Trophy
Antelope season. The Archery Antelope season closes on September 25th
and the Trophy Antelope season opens on September 25th.

Archery hunters routinely use and hide behind male antelope decoys while
hunting antelope. This creates an obvious safety concern when rifle
hunting is occurring concurrently. Please be aware that archery hunters
may be in the field on the opening day of the Trophy Antelope season in
Wildlife Management Units 138,142,144,150,151,152,160,162,163,164, and
166.

Thank you for your attention in this matter.

Bruce Treichel
Wildlife Allocation Specialist
