Thanks BlackGold, i got lucky with that buck. he was the first buck we saw, shot him at first light.....and he was the biggest buck we saw all day lol
Antelope hunters are probably the most modest hunters of all, its always "we lucked into one" never giving ourselves credit. But in reality, we spend more time on the range and more time with Binos glued to our eyeballs than any other hunters: If you think about it, because of the short season (s), our room for error is the smallest for any other game animal. There is no "next weekend". I wish other hunters were like us. I would drink a beer with anyone of you all.
Have you hunted elk?
I don't know friend, I've spent plenty of time at the rifle range getting prepped for everything from coyotes to elk and with my eyes pastered to the glass as well on these hunts and not a lot of room for error.
SoCokhntr: Yes, but I remember using my ears more than my spotting scope or binos. And remember not worrying about getting on another bull before the season ended abruptly. As for coyotes, you may have me on that one.....not sure how long our coyote season is here in NM.
Year round I believe in NM. Give it a try you'll love it as much or more then Antelope. Anyhoo, take care!
