16 Year Old Antelope Hunting

Took Erik antelope hunting today.
We spotted a large heard with multiple bucks. There were three in the group that Erik was willing to take. After a long stalk, with several re-routes, we finally made it to a suitable shooting spot. Look-out doe knew we were there, but only knew something was there.
Biggest problem was that there were so many antelope he couldn't get a clear shot and movement to a better shooting position would put them on the run. Finally, one of the bucks stopped, was semi-quartering and clear of other antelope. Animal went down right where he stood. He was shooting the 7mm SAUM XP-100, shooting 162 A-max. Distance was 210 yards. Dad is quite proud of course.

Re: 16 Year Old Antelope Hunting

You can tell he is 16 by the fact he is wearing sneakers and no sox in cactus country. Probably won't wear a coat when it is snowing either.

Good observation there

He was wearing gloves and elbow pads though earlier, as we had to crawl quite a bit

Nice! Congrats to both of you. (looks like he's at least wearing ankle sox)
