Re: 6br antelope kill

Nice shooting GG. Don't worry about that range with that sort of wind. You did what you went to do.

Ya done good.

    I guessed about 200 to 250 ft/lbs for the lope so about 900 yards or so in theory. My first shot on the 800+ doe would have smeared her into the dirt.


    Mule deer come in many more sizes than antelope. Given good shot placement, a big deer would fold at 400 I would bet.

    See ya next trip! GG
