GILLETTE, Wyo. -- The pronghorn buck looked across a quarter-mile of grass and sagebrush and seemed to smile.
There was ample reason.
Michael King and I crouch-walked in the animal's direction, binoculars held atop our heads like 6-inch horns, and did our best pronghorn antelope impersonations.
There are easier ruses to pull off. Some shag carpets offer more cover than well-browsed western grassland. And pronghorn have excellent vision.
