Pics of WY trip

It's been a couple years, but since I'm new here, I thought I'd share:


Mine: Not a bad first Lope. Horn L~13" I don't remember any other measurements.







My cousin Teddy's: BC=79 Horn Lengths~15", Prong Lengths~6.5", Base cir.~7"




Rugged terrain




Not Bad for First timers, on public land, self-guided.

Re: Pics of WY trip

SpencerSS,
Those are two real fine lopes...The best part of a good hunting trip is the time you share with friends & family....It does not depend on if you harvest something, nor the size or score of what you might bag...But rather it is the experience you have while you are there...It certainly looks like you and your cousin had a great time...My four sons and I have spent time hunting deer and antelope in 5 different states over the years since the early 80s, including SD, MT and now 5 times in WY and where we always have a great and successful time hunting antelope....At least one of us should draw a tag again this year and we will be back at it again this October in yet another totally new area to us...We have hunted 5 different antelope areas in WY and have found the country simply gorgeous and the antelope to be plentiful everywhere.....All DIY....
Congrats again and I really liked your "hunting rig"....Shows me that you weren't out road hunting and had to work for your lopes!

Re: Pics of WY trip

Nice goats. When I lived in Green River we used to hunt areas 59-112 south of Rock Springs. Lots of antelopes down there. Good dirt roads and miles of acreage to hunt. Really just about any area in Wyoming is good if you wish to kill a decent animal.

Both were shot with my 243AI and 95NPs. The shots weren't far, terrain forced us to get close.
