My Son's 2010 Pronghorn

I never got around to getting my son's pronghorn on here from this year. He anchored him in his tracks at 200 yards with his 257 Weatherby MK 5 shooting 100 grain ttsx bullets at 3760 fps. The buck dropped instantly from the shot faster than I could follow with the binocs. He is a nice 14 1/2" buck scoring in the high 70's. Good mass and prongs.

Congratulations to your son on a great antelope. It's good to see kids getting an early start like this.

Re: My Son's 2010 Pronghorn

Something to look forward to, you will enjoy it. Thanks guys, I enjoy carrying my son hunting and fishing more than for myself. It has rekindled my enjoyment of the sport.

Recover a Barnes bullet? C'mon man! I think I saw it kick up dust about a 1000 yards out there between two more antelope. Seriously, I wish I could recover one sometime to see if they look like they are suppose to. The animals insides are always mush so I assume they are doing there job.
