    Congratulations on your first antelope!!!
    He will make a unique mount, interesting how wide his forks are.
    Good job.

    I agree - that's some crazy horns.

    That is a neat one for sure, looks like he might take flight if he got enough speed.

    That's a cool lookin' set of horns. Don't see an entry wound...did you scare him to death? :)

    He is laying on the entry side. The other side has a small exit hole but there is a little more blood. Had to make a "clean" photo. He was partly quartering away so I lined up the shot to take out most of his goodies. Good part was both holes missed shoulders so it was a clean a pass thru, no wasted meat. We ate back strap medallions WED night, delish!
    Thank you all for your kind comments.

    He's a wide one for sure.

    WTG! That is hard to beat, especially as a 1st speed goat. Thanks for sharing.
