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

    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!:)

    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.

    Where in Wyoming did you hunt? It looks familiar. I hunted north of Gillette.

    I'll be after elk or caribou next. Plus I'm planning on doing a mountain lion hunt when I get back from Iraq.

    Good call on the hunting vehicle ( a rental ) unless you quarterd & boned & put in a cooler I wouldn't want an dead antelope in my trunk.
    We hunted 90 - 1 north of Farson on the east side of I think 193 last Sept had a blast 4th goat hunt in Wyoming for me each time I hunted a different unit each time was not dissapionted by the amount of game.
    This last trip myself my buddy & his son took mainly to try for some long range practice we got 3 in 1 hour & 45 min my only regret is we were done to soon.
