Re: Wyoming Pronghorns & Wind
VH, my latest antelope was taken last Oct. in NE Montana. I used an XP-100 in 22BR shooting a 55 gr. Sierra HPBT Gameking. One shot and it was lights out for him. This was a laser ranged shot @208 yds. I had plenty of time to shoot I might add. There was a 10 mph crosswind that I did allow for. These are thin skinned animals and a well placed shot will do the trick. I have taken numerous antelope with calibers ranging from .22 to .308, all centerfire. Some shots were in excess of 500 yds. The one that I remember most fondly was taken with my 260AI, 100 gr. Bt at only 80+ yds. The best part of the hunt was stalking him and getting as close as I possible. My advice. Shoot and then shoot somemore. Do so in all shooting positions and in the wind, if possible. Good luck and have fun!
Good luck, good hunting and good shooting!
