Re: Antelope-good to eat?

FEENIX, nice pics. How do I get a tag to hunt antelope in Montana? I live in NY, it looks like fun.

    Thanks! Unfortunately, it's too late for this season. Here's MT FWP's website ...

    Indeed! Antelope hunting is one of my favorite and I always have a blast.

    If you're going to make the long journey here out west, make sure you apply for WY's hunt too - not sure of their regs, hopefully someone will chime in.

    WY has the largest antelope population and IMHO has the most out-of-state friendly tags.

    Good luck!

    Tastes like mule deer.....sort of.

    I have only shot one (in Colorado). The guide took proper care of it and delivered it to a butcher shop that was going to cut and wrap and send to me. There was a mix up at the butcher shop and they sent my meet to a rest home. The guide felt bad about the mixup, so he sent me the meat from a young mule deer. Tasted great, but still don't know what an antelope really tastes like.....

    The calibers asked about all kill antelope. In WY its illegal to use a .22 caliber for any big game animal so that leaves the 22-250 off the list. They are thin skinned and have virtually no fat so a bullet that expands rapidly is ideal. They are not big animals. Most mature bucks are less than 110 lbs or so live weight. Bruce

    Feenix-

    Great pics and stories of your hunts. I lived in GF for quite a time and hunted the Judith Basin and Grass Range / Winnett areas for years. Many great Antelope hunts. Most shot like yours, scouting, stalking, and glassing, Shot all at a rise from the bed, standing or walking. All of them ate well, Thanks for the Pics. I miss central Montana!

    Above is 100% accurate. Since antelope meat has such a low fat content it is best cooked rare.
