    DE49F0E0-9C44-4E57-B4C9-58A08C55367F.jpeg Finally got drawn for antelope for the first time. Had my eye on this fella for a bit, managed to get him yesterday. He gave us a bit of a run around with tall weeds and grass making it difficult to get an effective range then the herd took off and I lined up on the fence they were going under, as he ducked under I plugged one into him, making his stop and hump up on the far side then I gave him another to finish him off. He was about 350yds, never had time to range to I guessed.
    I rough scored him at 76.5”

    'Grats! What zone are you in?

    I'm in unit 4, which for antelope management has been combined with unit 2 offering a total of 25 tags. Thankfully we have now have a priority system (as of this year)! Great to see the numbers bouncing back though.

    I saw a couple of small herds around a dozen and a healthy 30+ group while scouting for whitetail last week. Very encouraging!

    Thanks
    I’m in wmz 3, they combined 6,7,and 3.
    This guy actually lived in a 5 mile radius around my house, but he’s had archery and muzzle loader guys after him and was he wild.
    Wmz 4 is valmarie, Assiniboia country isn’t?

    Wow, crazy luck on the draw, and good hunting! Sounds like a fun shot you pulled off.

    Had to look on the map for wmz 3 - I know shaunavon and east end but haven't ventured south of that. You're right on with wmz 4, we're north of Gravelbourg.

    The goats up here have not seen pressure - I was able to roll the truck within 75yd of the biggest billy. Glad to hear you had to work for it a little!
