Re: first long shot

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

Re: first long shot

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.

Re: first long shot

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.

Re: first long shot

I figured that jimm was hinting at having it over here so "poof" I moved it.

It looks good over here don't you think???
