Fiance's Second and Third Antelope

I posted in Trophy Photos but I thought I'd get more hits here. Last weekend in the Shirley Basin, 2nd day of season. I bought this rifle for her last year for her b-day. Remington SPS in .308 (because she's expressed interest in hunting elk but is a bit recoil sensative), replaced the tupper-ware with a Boyd's laminate, 168gr SMKs and a Leupold Vari-X IIc in 3-9. One really dead doe antelope. Oh, and one hot blond.




Here's one with her 11 year old son, instructing him on the finer points of dressing out an animal:

    Here's our camp in the Shirley Mountains:



    Here's the third one for her, second for that day. I lost the wind-age cap so I had to borrow one from CSPSgt, hence the silver. Also, both of these killed off the Bog-Pod after some pretty intense stalks.



    Here's the sunset at our camp, looking over at the Platte and one of the reservoirs:

    The three of us on the first one of the day.

    Ranges? Short or long its no matter. Im more interested in the bullets performance at a given range.
