judging Antelope size

So I've been out hunting in an area filled with antelope. I can say I've seen proby 20 each time I've been out. the majority have been does, but I've seen what I would call "huge" bucks.

I'm wondering what you call a "huge" buck antelope?

Most of the bucks I am seeing have nice thick horns and the forks have pretty good width... I'd say 2-3 inches. I would guess the antlers extend past the ears about 4-8 inches on most of the bucks I've seen,

If you can find one that has prongs that start 2 inches above the ear, that are 5 inches from the back to the point and has 5 or more inches above the prong you will be looking at a very good buck. that would be a 15+ inch buck and with good mass could score in the 80's. I have a couple antelope pics posted in the antelope section, check them out and that's what your looking for.

you should just shoot what you think is a good buck or a trophy in your eyes not your buddy or your dad they are not paying for the mount you are. what ever you like SHOOT IT. dont care what people say anymore i think a 24" buck is a trophy to me. or a 14 to a 16 goat is a trophy to me. dont let the fun of your hunt be destroyed cause someone said its not the biggest on the hill!
