    Pronghorn antelope are important components of grassland and steppe ecosystems in Wyoming. Monitoring data on the size and population dynamics of these herds are expensive and gathered only a few times each year. Reliable data include estimates of animals harvested and proportion of bucks, does, and fawns. A deterministic simulation model has been used to improve estimates of population size. Expert judgement is employed for initial estimates of natural mortality; adjustments are made until the simulation satisfactorily agrees with field data.
