Re: Opening day Nevada Antelope

I drew the late season for 041, 042, Im leaving tomorrow.......................243 Barnes 80gr TSX Tipped ....3418.
I will be hunting high in areas where I will be walking into.................A lot of high springs, Im hoping that a lot of really nice bucks will be pushed into those high areas. Did you see a lot of other hunters??

Where did you hunt?? what part of area 041 or 042


That's one nasty bloody hole you put in that animal.................

Great shot

since you did not call. Rye Patch res. Is where you want to go. I did not care about the Boone. We checked it out months ahead of time and drove hundreds of miles in 4X4. Soft sand and the worst roads. Cut through the side wall on tires. Spent days fishing and blasting jack rabbits

My dad shot his there this morning. About the same size.

It's real fun to cool off with some fishing and swimming.

Re: Opening day Nevada Antelope

I got my buck tus morning....................Really high up in a bowl. I was working into position when I ran into two nice Mule Deer bucks............had to wait until they grazed past me as I did not want them to spook the Antelope. The antelope where way high grazing right up with the Big Muley bucks...........they were great to watch. I had to drag him a long ways so most of the hair was bubbed off the shoulders and neck...............no way to get him out as the mountain was really steep and rocky. I had a steep down hill shot at a little over 300 yards...............It was super hot out there 94.

One guy was hunting on a quad and those buck would spook off and run over the hill even when he was about a mile away. Once they would hear the quad they would take off.................I watch one really big buck that I wanted to stalk but the quads ran him off to...................My conclusion is if you want to hunt leave the quads in camp.

Greg
