Re: IDAHO-First Antelope Hunt Success

Very Nice goat for the first. I have never drawn antelope in Idaho for rifle. that tag knows how to stay away from me. Have got one with a bow but still waiting for a gun kill. Congrats!! in My oppinion any goat is a great goat especially being so hard to draw for.

Re: IDAHO-First Antelope Hunt Success

Thanks guys.

Shootermedic, I shot it with my .300 RUM with a 150 grn Barnes TTSX and 90 grains of H4831. Not sure on the exact yardage. My first (miss) shot was just under 400 yards, they ran a little and luckily stopped. With not much time to waste, I guessed them at that point to be between 425-450 and got lucky and dumped him.

Now I have to focus on my unit 39 early buck tag. The Trinity Ridge fire is burning everything around the area I was hoping to get to hunt. I had some pretty good luck in 2004 with the early 39 tag and was hoping to do it again, but we'll have to see what the fires do. I know the unit pretty well so I think it will all pan out but If anybody has any suggestions I'd be all ears... I know approx where the fires are and the road closures so far, but even with that, all the smoke is going to put a damper on glassing, etc.

Thanks again for the responces and good luck to all of you this fall.

Jaxon

Re: IDAHO-First Antelope Hunt Success

Hope all goes well on your hunt. that also is a good one to draw. that fire does not seem to show any slowing down does it. That is some awsome country up there that is on fire. Sounds like you had a good draw year.
Good Luck and keep us posted.
