Re: My Son's 2010 Pronghorn

Long Time Long Ranger: Please relay my congratulations on to your son.
Good job for the both of you.
I have to ask regarding the photo - is that the spot where the Antelope fell?
The reason I ask is because it seems awfully "woodsy" or "brushy" there to be Antelope habitat?
Was that Antelope harvested in Wyoming?
Hard to fake a smile like that one!
Many happy returns of the day to both of you!
Hold into the wind

About 15 years ago, I recovered a 115 gr Barnes X bullet from a Mule Deer that I shot with a 25-06. It had a portion of one petal missing. Other than that, it looked just like the pictures. The bullet entered behind the right front leg and I found it underneath the skin on the left side of the neck a few inches behind the head. The deer never moved after it was hit.

Re: My Son's 2010 Pronghorn

Thanks Edd, I never can get one to stick so I can find it.

VarmintGuy, The picture was taken in some sagebrush beside my house. He shot him about five minutes down the road. Yes, we are in Wyoming and have antelope running all over the place just out of town. Heck, in town sometimes. Finding a good one is the problem. I think my son got a good one after we picked over a few. He was happy anyway and that is all that matters to me. I love to hunt antelope, plenty of them to keep everybody excited.

Thanks all, my son and I appreciates it.

I don't think any of my personal trophies gave the satisfaction that helping/watching a young person get started in this sport has. Thanks for the picture
