GF's first Antelope



Had been hunting for about 5 minutes when this one walked in front of the truck. Shirley basin in Wyoming. 7:15 am. .25-'06 with 117gr GKs at a measured 284 yards. Her first game animal and she was flying high for the rest of the day.

Just had to share.

Excellent! Looks like great country and a great day!

So, what is the 'next' game animal on her radar?

Thanks for sharing,

AJ

Wow. It took me a second to realize that there was an antelope in that picture. Nice trophy! (Cool rifle and antelope, too.)

I think I've actually created a monster. She was saying how sad she was that she had to wait another "365 days" to hunt again. And, she's planning out the next trip already, how many days we'll take off, how many tags she's going to buy, how she needs to get her own rifle, etc.

Last night we watched some Versus On Demand hunting shows, and she decided it would be fun to hunt Cape Buffalo.

Hey, thanks for the compliment. I really don't know what she's doing with me, but I'm not going to question it. Girls who like to hunt are rare indeed.

Great, if she likes to read. Get her a copy of "Horn of the Hunter". If she likes that (she will !!!) then start her on Capstick ("Death in the long grass" etc. ).

If you haven't read them yet, they are a great way to pass the time between hunting seasons.
