Windsor County, VT – In what some folks in the hunting community may consider a bold move, local hunter, Tim Biebel, is proposing that his home state of Vermont institute a 3-point horn restriction (HPR) for all pronghorn antelope in Vermont.
“It’s time for a change,” Biebel says. “Too many antelope bucks are harvested before they have a chance to show their true potential. I’ve never even seen one with more than two points on a side. Come to think of it, I’ve never even seen one here. It’s a shame.”
When confronted with the fact that antelope very rarely grow three points on one side, Biebel doubled down on the reason for his proposal.
“That’s exactly why we need a restriction! If hunters would quit shooting them when they only have two points, we might have a chance to see something a little better.” He claimed.
Biebel said his discussions with local wildlife officials have convinced him to move forward with the proposal. “No one wanted to actually speak on the record until they’d had a chance to run some numbers, but off the record they told me my proposal would not result in any net change to the population of speed goats in Vermont. It would be neutral. ‘Negligible’ is the word that they used, I think.”
At press time, Biebel was excited about going public with his proposal because he’s confident it’s a change all Vermonters can get behind. “It’s good for the herd, it’s good for the hunters, and it’s good for the general public who like to watch wildlife. It’s a Win-Win-Win.”
