    MS,

    That is very good shooting...... Two antelope with one shot and they were 31 yards apart. Man that is good shooting.

    It was not with one shot.

    MS,

    Even if it was two shots, you still made some good shots.

    That's some great shooting epsecially when you consider a 15mph full value wind.

    Thanks guys, no doubt the wind was the most challenging aspect of the shots.
