Back from hunting. Arrived late afternoon last Friday. Got out for a couple of hours and saw goats, but couldn't get on any of them.

There were five of us hunting and we broke up into two groups. Saturday, one of the guys got one in the morning, but then it got windy and the antelope became extremely spooky. It wasn't looking good, but then the winds calmed down around 3 pm and we took another goat out of a big herd.

Then around 5pm we spotted another herd about a 1/2 mile away on walk in hunting land. We stalked up and then belly crawled for about 100 yards to within about 400 yards.

I was contemplating a long shot, but then the antelope start to move off and I thought we had blown the stalk. Fortunately, they began moving towards us. I picked at what I thought was the biggest buck in the group. He was busy herding his does and I took him at 75 yards when he paused for moment.

I used my new Cooper .270 from a prone position.

Thanks - he is my third one and my best one. I am having a shoulder mount done. Will take 6-8 mos to get it done, but I'll post pics when it is done.

I think antelope are one of my favorite mounts. Very good looking on the wall! Big smile

Had a shoulder mount done about 10 years ago, then a couple years ago my husband got an even nicer buck. He's still in our freezer! Haven't decided if we're going to do another one or not. Guess we should make a decision! Evil!
