The 3 Stooges Antelope Hunting

Actually only two of them were hunting, the other one was running the video camera.

The story unfolds like this.

We were about done antelope hunting and we just needed to shoot one last one for meat. Now this should not be a hard chore to accomplish by three expert longrange hunters but as we shall see antelope are not always cooperative. We drove along the dirt road until we spotted two does and a buck. They were close to a fence line and about 100 yards over a rise, so we drove on past till we were out of sight and then parked the truck.


Part 1.
Cynthia got the 7 AM out and Phil got the range finder and binoculars and started for the top of the rise and the antelope would be about 100 yards on the other side of it.

Part 2.

They reach the top of the rise and kneel down and Cynthia begins to get the rifle ready.

Part 3.
Once the rifle has the bipod legs down and extended and the scope cover off and the action open, they decide it is time to see where the antelope are. SURPRISE, the antelope are not where we left them.!!! The antelope make a break for it and for some reason decide to run right past Cynthia and Phil along the fence line so I try to cut the antelope off by running toward the fence waving the camera around. In the last little part you will see the buck and two does running along the fence line just laughing like hell.

DISCLAIMER: No antelope were hurt in the making of these videos.

    Ah yes, a new antelope hunting tactic. Trying to outrun them on foot. Sounds logical to me as they can only go about 60 mph or so.

    Next time you try and run one down, let one of the kids use the camera so we can get a better view of you smoking it across the sagebrush flats to outrun the speed goats.;)

    At least you guys had fun.

    I would loved to have seen video of BB scampering across the sagebrush, camera in hand, trying to run down those speed goats.

    Very entertaining BB, good video.

    You forgot to mention that the "SIC", stooge in charge, was behind the camera...
