    but this WAS in Wyoming's only ARCHERY ONLY hunting area for Antelope! (2002)
    -Now it is open for rifle.

    And I found Wile E. Coyote on the prowl...for geese...
    Wile E. thinks they are duck-billed...web-footed Roadrunners.

    Nice pics, a couple of those are pretty tall.

    I didn't realize 114 used to be archery only.

    They just walked right by me and my pick-up - 20-yards away....

    I was laid up with a screwed-up leg...

    That area is awesome and has some great goats even as of last year. I hunted just south of Ten Sleep last year and we saw a number of super goats. I'm gathering points to go back out there in a couple of years.

    Someone can tell me I'm wrong, but I don't see any of those bucks scoring over 80. Typical Wyoming bucks for a lot areas in central and southern Wyoming...

    I don't know the exact procedure for scoring horns - but they are quite tall - and not so typical from what I've seen while living in Wyoming the last 20-years.
    To me, those two bucks were special and un-usual. :D

    Your not wrong. No 80 scores in that group, but two shooters for sure.
