    I saw one antelope look over the ridge at me while there was shooting all around.
    She saw me and did not come over the ridge.
    I hunted 3 places I have seen antelope in years past, but only made my feet sore.

    The old tried and true 90mph sneak is pretty common around here too.

    Nice! I suppose your tortured by some of those private land bucks in 540!! My wife has a doe tag over there, there's a few bucks pushing 80 that we watched. They know where they're safe!

    Yes they do. I do have a ranch I am fortunate to get to hunt on, but there is just enough of others that can hunt it that the antelope stay spooked and all the ranches around do not allow any hunting so they can go there and stay.

    My son and I had the same problem on the opener. Just to many people and not enough Antelope. Lots of bullets were flying , not the type of hunt you want to take your Son on his first hunt .
    We will never put in for regin 500 again .
