Re: Drew my first antelope tag ever!! Nevada 065

Good for you . I also received a tag for area 076 in N.E.NV. it took 20 plus years to draw one. If I get one it will be the second time. I will be using a custom .284 Win. with a long throat and 168 Berger VLD. It has a 27 1/4'' barrel and a I/8 twist. Shoots small little groups. I expect a long range shot 300 to 600 yards.
Good luck.

    I drew right across the highway in 141. I hunted 065 last year with my uncle for deer. great unit. He has a deer and a antelope tag there this year. I'll be using a custom 6.5-284 shooting 140 gr Berger VLD's. Should be all I need and then some!

    Stand by all, I'm out of town and don't have the pix on my phone. I'll get some loaded when I get home.

    Yes I tagged one. Nothing huge but nice. I was pretty much set on shooting the first legal buck I saw and did. They were rutting very hard on the opener. Very hot and dry country.

    Here you go. It was very dry and hot, really dusty too. Opening day, roughly 470 yards. 6.5-284, 140 VLD. Anything but a trophy but I couldn't pass this buck since I had never taken one to that point. Besides, this neon white Alaska boy was getting sun burned so bad my face was swelling up like a balloon!
