    Actually you can't judge an antelope by horn size because it is determined by food and water supply for the growth every year...but occassionally you see one that has all those extra blades...makes me curious of how old those boys are.....what did his teeth look like.....did he fart a lot...like us older guys(isnt that so 300....)....:D

    Lost part of my post....meant to say with the teeth data and the extremely dark muzzle I believe he was a real ‘ol boy.......but still interested in pushing younger bucks away from his harem. Also meant to post on first thread that my shot was 425 yards off Spartan Javelin bipods and Nightforce NXS 5-22x50.

    The little ivory on the tips really set off the rack. Another indication he was an older buck.

    Great old Prairie Goat! Very symmetrical junk as well. Had to be pushing close to 8 years. Make a beautiful full caped mount! Congrats...

    Great look’n “goat”. Congratulations! It’s a good thing that my wife didn’t have a license and see it before you.....she loves the non-typical’s. I guess that’s why she kept me! :D memtb
