Antelope down in Southern NM

I got my antelope with my bow almost 2 weeks ago and hope to pick up my skull mount early next week.  my ruff score is around low 70's.   I shot him at first light on the 2nd to last day.  A Hard hunt for me because i live almost 300 miles from the game unit.  i got him around 30 yards with out a blind and he ran about 10 yards in to a fence.  enjoy

Very nice antelope Smitty! I

Very nice antelope Smitty! I know all about driving to my hunting area, so it's nice that your persistance paid off. 

That skull mount should come out great.  Just curious, what does a speedgoat need to score to make Pope and Young?  Seems to be a good sized one.

Congrats!

That's a great antelope and some great pictures. Skull mounts look great and it's what I do with pretty much everything anymore to save money. If you had a taxidermist do it that's a super quick yurn around time as over here you won't get anything back for nearly a year.

Once you get the procedure down it's not that hard to do them yourself, I'm sure the hunt was much more of a challenge. Getting one with a bow the way you did was a huge accomplishment in my opinion.

Nice looking goat! Congrats on getting him with your bow, not an easy job. I will harvest one with stick and string before my hunting career comes to an end.
