We say “antelope” but they are really Pronghorns.  They don’t drop their horns as deer do their antlers.  They have a core bone that discards and regrows its sheath yearly.  The female has smaller, spiky, non-pronged horns.Pronghorn Buck

Antelope don’t jump fences.  They crawl under.  Here they are north of North Sterling State Park waiting for a chance  at the “gate.”  I have seen exactly one antelope hope a low fence.
