First Antelope Hunt

We are leaving in the morning for Wyoming, Unit 23 for a couple antelope. We have 4 doe tags so if we can fill a couple i will be able to taste antelope for the first time! We are bringing our 257 Roberts shoting the 80 grain TTSX at 3284 fps, a 25-06 shooting the 100 grain TTSX at about 3000 fps (i know thats slow but i was in a hurry to work up a load and this shot under 3/4 MOA so i left it), and the 338 Lapua pushing the 280 grain LRX at 2635 fps.

We are hunting tomorrow afternoon and sunday to about midday and staying the night in Gillette.

I hope to get a doe at 500+ yards with the Lapua for what i guess what you can call my first longrange kill.
Ill post a couple pics if we get anything.

Re: First Antelope Hunt

Well we saw 400+ head of antelope today, all on private land. Absolutly nothing on BLM or state trust land. Any suggestions from people who have hunted unit 23 straight south of Gillette?
