The "Hunt"!

My son (15) and I went on our first ever big game hunt. We filled all tags to boot! Yippi, we ate meat and not tag salad! Dancing

We each shot 2 lopes (a first for both-story&pic in lope forum) and both shoot our first mulies, both does. We had a blast and are hoping to go west to hunt again in 2012.

Here is a pic of our harvest. Remember, I'm a hunter, not a photographer! Big smile

That's awesome BoneC!!!!  To be there together, and to have both of you get your first big game animals together, that just takes the cake.  Congrats to both of you, a couple of fine speedgoats and mulies!!

Congratulations on your

Congratulations on your mulies and antelope. It's great your out there with your son like that. I assume you meant first western big game hunt and not your first hunt ever. Antelope are addictive and I go back year after year as the're just so much fun.

I thought he meant any big game, but looking at his profile photo, he's definately shot at least one before... Wink

Don't Give Up on the Salad

Grind up some of one of those does, brown up with some onion & taco seasoning and make up a big Taco Salad.  Put the punched tags on the table to help remind you and your son of the great days in the field.

And the photo's are great!  At least you can figure out how to post them - I'm on the low end of the learning curve in that department.

Thanks guys! Yeah, it was our

Thanks guys! Yeah, it was our first Big Game Hunt. Although, it is baffling to me that Antelope are considered "Big Game". lol. We've both taken plenty of white tail here in Ohio. My son has 4 already this year. I have been working hard for a nice buck, but so far he is winning the battle. However, I am patient and persistent! Yes

We are already planning future hunts and I'll have lot's of questions in the near future for that! lol.

Congrats to you and your son!  It sounds like it was a great adventure and the pictures prove it was!  Whitetails are considered big game animals so you are definitely a big game hunter... especially those SE Ohio deer.  Thanks for sharing your "Hunt"!
