My First Antelope

I went to NM over the weekend and took this goat at 556 yards with my 243Ai using a 115 Dtac.
I do not know a thing about antelopes.....except that I had a great time hunting this one. I made some new friends, introduced some folks to long range shooting, and just had a heck of a great time.

I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

    That's a good looking goat, there eddybo! Looks like you had a good set-up with that 243ai, that ought to be a great antelope round. Those antelope sure make some nice mounts and that one will look good on your wall.
