here is a couple pictures of the antelope. don't mind the jean shorts. had to change out of the wet clothes. Lots of lighting and rain!!
I watched this buck for about a hour before i got a shot at him. He was the loser of a fight and was coming in to a water tank. little did both of us know that we were both going to be meeting eachother at a small hill next to fence. I saw horns and came to full draw and at 30 yards i drilled him through the shoulder and never found my arrow. He run a total of 10 yards and got stuck in the fence. This is my 1st archery antelope and 2nd antelope ever.
