Re: My First Antelope

Congratulations on your first antelope!!!
He will make a unique mount, interesting how wide his forks are.
Good job.

Re: My First Antelope

That is a neat one for sure, looks like he might take flight if he got enough speed.

Re: My First Antelope

That's a cool lookin' set of horns. Don't see an entry wound...did you scare him to death?

Re: My First Antelope

He is laying on the entry side. The other side has a small exit hole but there is a little more blood. Had to make a "clean" photo. He was partly quartering away so I lined up the shot to take out most of his goodies. Good part was both holes missed shoulders so it was a clean a pass thru, no wasted meat. We ate back strap medallions WED night, delish!
Thank you all for your kind comments.
