Well

Tried archery antelope a couple times last couple weeks of Aug. Closest I was able to stalk was 75 yards beyond my limit of 60 yds which I was dialed In for from a lot of practice. The goats in my area were highly skittish even for this early and not being shot at yet. But, its been a free fire zone during rifle season the past three/four years and has the goats conditioned to be on alert. Me and my dad have doe rifle tags so will be headed out next weekend Will be nice to be able to reach out and touch one after bow hunting the past month. The 30-06 with hand loaded 168 gr Bergers at 2,840 fps will be the weapon. This combo is a good long range killer.

Snow

Winter storm warning for Friday into Sat morn. 6-10 inches in Medicine Bow with 25 MPH winds. Sound like Fun in Wyoming!!

Goat

Well, to say the least the weather was challenging. Made it to Medicine Bow Friday@4 p.m. through Blizzard conditions. 487 to Casper was closed, so could not go scout. Early Sat, 487 open and headed North into the teeth of 40-50mph winds and bitter cold. County roads were the only drivable ones. No BLM small roads and two tracks were passable. 487 should of never probably opened. 3 inches of ice and rough with visability sometimes at zero. Managed to see 20 or so Bucks and passed on all. Nothing had that WOW factor. Not sure there are many in the 15 inch range with great cutters there anymore. My buddy shot a good 14 1/4 with good mass. Not sure how he did it in the wind and blowing snow. Sunday, more passing Bucks. Maybe next weekend I will find one to my liking. Pic of my buddies buck.
