re: antelope - what to look for??
Jeff 300, one of the first things that you look at is how far above the ears are the cutters or prongs, if you are looking for an antelope to score well the higher up the horn the cutter is the bettter it will score for mass measurements, also you want to look at an antelope that has a good curl on the tips this adds length quickly and last you want fairly good over all length, so mass, curl, cutter length and hight above ears, and over all length, but the truth of it is beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I have shot several that were very good looking either with a good heart shap or big prongs but was weak else where and found them scoring in the upper 70's but not a book buck, but still a very nice representative. Whehter you get a book buck or a garden variety it is a great sport with the speedster of the plains, good luck hunting.
