Re: 2,008 Antelope Hunt (after the blizzard!)

VarmintGuy,

Congrats on your hunt! I remember that day. Where we were hunting (area 450 in Cascade), it was overcast with rolling fog, the visibility was no more than 200 yards. I was guiding a young Airman (first time big game hunter). We called it quits before noon for safety reason.

We went back the following day and filled his doe tag. My buck tagged was unfilled but I had a blast taking the young Airman and other new hunters afield.

VarmintGuy,

Great read and it just shows how much smarter you than me. Knowing the storm was bearing down, I still decided to stay with the plan for my wife and my annual trip to eastern Montana for antelope. We arrived Billings with about a foot of snow. The next day much the same in our hunting area.

What a difference hunting the critters with snow on the ground. Long story short, she got her buck, I took a doe since I had filled by buck tag during archery season. Doubtful we'll see so much snow this early again, if so I hope to follow your lead and wait for better conditions.

Never having hunted antelope with snow on the ground I was surprised that they bunched up in such large numbers. We never saw small bands it was always fifty or more which made stalking a whole different challenge. Not only a lot of fun to hunt but some of the best eating, hands down.

Bob

Remembered taking a couple of pictures. This one was typical of what we were seeing. Actually, this show only about half the goats in this group.
