    Thanks for the picture post... I don't know much about antelope but I'd guess it's a nice one and I'd also guess it was suprised right there in those last few seconds...

    Thanks

    435 paces ain't nothing to sneeze at. I'd be pleased as punch to get a speedgoat at that distance. My calculator says that 435 long paces (4 foot steps?) is 580 yards. Thats good shootin' in my book.

    Thanks for the good words 4ked horn........I figure i get about 40" per long step,well at least I did 25 years ago [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]..... At least this goat was standing still. Out of all the animals I've hunted over the years I guess antelope is the most fun for me.Also, I love their meat, such a unique flavor yet still mild enough the pickiest eaters dont know it's wild game. see ya,...jimm.......btw, I guess this post should have been in long range hunting since that post's description has photos listed in it, you reckon? ...jimm

    Looks like as good a spot as any to me. Looks like Dave king thinks so as well.
