Good luck with your hunt,

Good luck with your hunt, it's getting closer and closer for all of us now. It's only 8 weeks till I head to Wyoming for my first big game hunt of the year but as usual I will be hunting the easy way and using a rifle. I admire you guys that are upping the chalenge and using a bow. Hopefully there are no serious problems with your bow this close to the start of things. At least you still have a little time to get it worked out.

Good luck again.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

The fall hunting season is definitely getting closer.  Having archery tags for antelope and deer definitely help it get here quicker.  I know I could probably use more than 5 weeks to practice, but I am still anxious for those seasons to open!  Then, after archery deer season closes, only 3 more weeks till 1st rifle season for elk!

Goosehunter, good luck with your top cam.  Hopefully it is nothing.

Antelope with a bow has to be

Antelope with a bow has to be one of the most challenging hunts I could imagine!  Best of luck to you, it should be a blast.  Those things can see a mile, run faster than anything else on our continent, so I can't imagine trying to get into bow range.

Hopefully a nice one will get a little thirsty and walk into bow range for you.  Thumbs up

It gets pretty fun when you

It gets pretty fun when you have a dozen or so at a water hole getting a drink and you are trying to focus on one to shoot.  Really get the blood pressure up in a hurry.  I have taken two antelope with a bow and as of yet nopthing really beats the adreniline rush.  I know that when I finally get to let an arrow fly at a legal elk I am sure that will be pretty exciting also!!

My bow is still at the shop I have a major malfuintion with the rest...they are gonna try and fix if not the manufacture is gonna send a new one ASAP!!  better hurry still need to get some more range time in!

I can't wait to get out and

I can't wait to get out and try.  I love the rush.  If it is anything like my bow hunt 4 years ago for elk i will be on the rush for weeks, because my deer hunt starts 2 weeks after with a bow.
