2011 Wyoming Antelope

I was lucky enough to draw an antelope tag for area 72 my first year applying. I went out knowing that there were a lot of goats in that area and I saw plenty of nice ones. This one caught my eye saturday night the 24 of September but couldn't get a good shot on him. Went out again sunday morning and spotted him in the same area. After quite a stock on him i finally got my chance and made the most of it. He is not the biggest one I have ever shot but by far the most unique.

It would be tough to pass up a buck with that character. Good job.

Re: 2011 Wyoming Antelope

I hope you had as much fun as I have had in the past. I just love the spot & stalk hunting of Antelope the crawling and sneeking in for the shot & the great views of the country. I hope you get to do more western hunting in the future. By the way a nice buck & you will always remember it & the smell of the sage every time I get out west I grab a hand full and smell it & look at the beautiful vistas. Good Hunting.

Re: 2011 Wyoming Antelope

The gun is a Ruger M77 Mark II in 280 Rem. I'm shooting a 139gr Hornady SST with 45.5gr of IMR 4064. Shot was ranged at 303 yards. Wind was a very light breeze from left to right.
