Re: Antelope gear?

Laughin' here - and no - my son and I can't get our schedules together well enough for a father-son antelope hunt this year. Maybe 2012.

No big problem though, we'll fly fish and hunt deer & small game together.

Regards, Guy

    Don't wear the knee-pads, although over about 40 years of antelope-huntin', I've picked-out a few stickers (ouch)!

    For gloves, I have an old pair of Wells Lamont insulated winter-wt. work gloves (made in Korea). The palms are hardened by being blood-soaked from packin' elk quarters, many antelope drags and mulie pack-outs over the years. They fit loose enough to drop-off my shooting-hand when its time to get the shot off. No thorns have ever penetrated them.

    An old hunting buddy (gone over the great divide now) used to wear a pair of heavy-duty bird-hunting pants, with a special facing on the front of the legs. Said they were ok.

    Got a WY tag this year, so maybe I'll see you out there,

    Jim

    On last year's hunt, I wore Cabela's elk leather gloves and they were fantastic however as they were lined they would probably be a bit much for a September hunt. (we hunted in Oct in 60 deg. days) Being from PA and as this was our first goat hunt, my dad and I both took simple athletic knee pads. The only cactus I picked was out of the side of my stomach from laying prone to take a shot......gotta love the Gerber multi-tool for cactus removal.
