silly

Looking at all your wonderful mounts makes me feel kind of silly.  I went on this antelope hunt one time in Wyoming and while I was sneaking up on a bunch of lopes, all of a sudden I caught movement out of the corner of my eye.  I quickly turned and it was just in time.  I saw him coming at about 15 yards and he was closing fast with hatred in his eyes.  I knew I had to act fast or I would be history.  I raised my 416 Rigby and fired from the hip.  Lucky for me I had been practicing my Anny Oakley routine and I dropped this beast at 5 feet.  In fact, the body slid to a halt just inches from my feet.  As terrified as I was, I skinned him and took him to my local taxidermist.  You can call him what you like, but I just call him "killer".  Here he is, now hanging safely on my trophy room wall.  I shake just thinking about that hair-raising ordeal.  Please be careful when hunting the wilds of Wyoming.  I hope you don't think my trophy room is silly.

The elusive jackalope !!!!!

arrowflipper,

A very rare mount and critter indeed. You must have got a crossbreed, because I have never seen a whitetail jackalope. I have only seen a muledeer jackalope, but I did not connect.

Were all silly here every now and than. :yes:  Thanks for sharing.

My mounts

My 07 archery bull. I was napping in one of my favorite meadows on a hot afternoon in mid september occasionally cow calling. When I heard leaves rustling  below me. I casually sat up and chirped on my cow call thinking it was probably another chipmunk. Boy was I surprised when a bull immediately bugled and started running right to me. I drew my bow as he was running up the game trail and the bull stopped at 20 yards facing me. He froze and looked all over the meadow for a cow. I was waiting for him to turn broadside when I felt the wind change and the cool breeze started blowing on my sweaty back. I thought he would bust any second Luckily I had sprayed a ton of elk piss all over the bushes around me. He did not bust but I couldn't hold my bow back any longer so I took the shot and hit him perfectly the bull only ran 70 yards and expired.

I know shots like that are considered risky with a bow but at 20 yards I was confident I would kill him. My arrow got the top of his heart, lungs, and the broadhead ended up lodged into his pelvis. He grossed 299 5/8. 

The other pic is my dads 09? archery bear. Don't know what he weighed but his skull measured just under 21 inches.

Pronghorn

I forgot about this one.

My pronghorn I killed in 98 or 99 I think. I could go out to the freezer to be sure. I bet I still have some of the meat. Big smile
