Montana Antelope hunt

Well the wife and I did OK on our antelope opener Sunday. We scouted up a small herd on Saturday (1 buck and 8 does), and my wife got that buck first thing Sunday morning at about 200 yards. She made a great shot and he went straight down. When the does blasted out of there I made a lucky shot on one at about 250 yards. Later that day we found another herd, they were pretty riled by then so they were really running out fast when they spotted us. Luckily we were pretty close and I was able to shoot my buck at about 150 yards. My wife hit a doe, and we trailed her for miles before we admitted she lost it. This was her first lost antelope and she took it pretty hard. But all in all it was a good day, not huge bucks but we had a great time. We'll be making jerky all weekend........
