Re: Sizing up Antelope
First off welcome!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
A simple way to answer your ??
1st look for horns that are 14" in length. You can also look for prongs that are about 5" long. Stick to using their ears for a visual referance. A mature buck's ears will be around 6" long. If you find a buck who's horns are 2-1/2 times the length of his ears...DO NOT pass him up. The best bucks will have 6" bases. Viewed from the side the horns will look about 3" wide. All this is refering to the biggest bucks of course.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
