IDAHO-First Antelope Hunt Success

Hello all,

This is my first post on LRH. I have checked out the site several times in the past but just joined last week.

I was lucky this year and ended up with an antelope tag here in Idaho. First one in over 10 years of applying. I actually didn't even apply, I got lucky and grabbed the only leftover tag that went on sale first come/first served a couple weeks ago. Never hunted them before. My tag was for unit 76 (A unit I had never stepped foot in before). After looking over a few maps, talking with the conservation officer over there and trying to dig up as much info as I could, I headed out for eastern Idaho. With not much time to spend over there this fall, I headed out telling myself I would tag the first buck I had an opportunity at. At 10:00 the first morning I closed the deal on this guy. Not a monster by any stretch of the imagination but for my first lope and a "last minute" not much time to hunt hunt, I was happy with it.

What a blast hunting these things. I wish I had more time just to put on a few more stalks and take in the experience a little more. I am definitely hooked!

    Congratulations.


    I thought about trying it for about ten seconds and ruled it out, guess glory really does favor the bold.

    Good going...doesn't look quite as hot as it probably is with the greenery.
