STATUS OP THE PRONGHORJSTED ANTELOPE, 1922-1924 27 The detailed information concerning the distribution and number of antelope now in California has been supplied mainly by M. Hall McAllister, of the California Academy of Sciences; George Neale, executive officer of the Cali- fornia Fish and Game Commission; and F. E. Garlough, of the rodent-control section of the Biological Survey. The distribution of antelope in California is approximately as follows (fig. 4) : 1. John O. Miller reported on February 28, 1923, that the Mount Dome herd contained about 118 antelope. They range on the plains in the southern end of Lower Klamath Lake, near Mount Dome, in Siskiyou County, probably the most favorable area in California for perpetuating antelope under natural conditions. For some years the herd has had the attention of the State fish and game commission and other conservationists, as set forth above, and with the destruction of preda- tory animals in that dis- trict should increase in numbers. 2. The Lassen County antelope, scattered in nu- merous small bands on Madeline Plains, in Dixie Valley, Secret Valley, and other points, range east- ward into the Smoke Creek Desert of Nevada. These were counted by W. J. Lee, who reported on September 29, 1923, that they aggregated S64' ani- mals. Since then it has been reported that most of these animals have crossed the State boundary into the adjacent part of Nevada, as a result of fail- ing forage due to the ex- cessively dry season of 1924. They will undoubt- edly return with the res- toration of more favorable conditions. 3. In 1922 two small bands, totaling 29 animals, were reported as ranging between Mendota and Pa- noche Creek, on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley, in Fresno County. 4. A band of about 30 was located in 1922 between Granite Wells and Rands- burg, on the Mohave Desert, in San Bernardino County. 5. tn 1922 a band of 11 lived in A
