  I'm with you here

 

I'm with you here GooseHunter Jr!  I too am unfortunately working on this web site now instead of out east glassing for some antelope.  Luckily not because I am working but rather my tag is for the December season. 

So good luck to all of you hunters currently out in the field.  Those of you hunting GMU 120 and 121 - please leave a good amount behind so I can get my 1st one!  Big smile

R2H, I also hunt in 121.  I

R2H, I also hunt in 121.  I had a doe tag for rifle season but turned it in as I had to work.  I had a December tag last year and while I shot a doe it was very tough out there.  Antelope were very spooky and it was hard to get close to them.  I had to shoot mine at 450 yards....not sopmethig I like to always do.  Good luck out there.  I have a buddy out there right now with his daughter.

  GooseHunter Jr - Yes, I

 

GooseHunter Jr - Yes, I figured it was going to be a tough one being they would be spooked easily from the earlier hunters.  And this being the 1st antelope hunt for me it is only going to test my skills more so... and my memory of the blogs/articles read.  I  just re-sighted in the rifle yesterday and was dead on bulls-eye at 200 yards - four shots grouped in a 2 inch cirrcle.  I just may have to get an early Christmas present and get that rangefinder I want.  450 yards though?  I have never shot at anything that far... and don't know if I would take it.  Definitely would on the last day.  Well - I hope you can make time for a hunt later!  I'm hunting a Colorado big game access property too so that may add to the spooked animals as well.  We'll see!

What are you complaining

What are you complaining for?  Didn't you say you were going to be hunting for something like 15 days this month???? lol

Yep, good luck to all the guys out there chasing Antelope!  One of these days I will get to do it, maybe in Wyoming and not Colorado.  But, until then, i need to live vicariously through all of your postings...... Wink
