Wyoming Antelope Hunt

I was able to get this weekend off to hunt pronghorn up in Wyoming. I will only get one full day of hunting but as you all know, some hunting is way the heck better than no hunting. We will be north of Sinclair. Anyone else going to be up there? I think we have five doe tags between us so hopefully we'll be coming back with some meat. I learned my lesson too and got a fishing license. I am hoping the browns will be hitting while we're there.

Never hunted up there before

Never hunted up there before but it is Wyoming, so I think no matter where you go should be able to find some good antelope.  Good luck and keep us posted.

Good luck to you Hawkeye.  I

Good luck to you Hawkeye.  I have some inlaws in the eastern part of the state near Douglas who own some land, and I have an open invitation to go there if I ever want to.  They see lopes right off their back porch.  Might give it a try one of these times.

Well, since you ain't back yet...

I'm gonna hijack your thread with my pics!

We got 9 goats after hunting 2 hours Friday, all day Saturday, and 3 hours Sunday.  Had a lot better luck in checkerboarded country where the animals seemed much less pressured, presumably because people can't or won't read maps.  On the big public areas, they were pretty spooky.

I was shooting the .264 (of course!) with 100 grain Ballistic Tips at a little over 3700 fps.  They do make a big hole, but don't ruin much meat if you place them correctly:

If you've never tried antelope hunting, it's really a good time, and good chance to take the wives and kids out.

Seems every we get cruddy weather, regardless of what weekend we go out.

Nic job ex. Everytime I see a

Nic job ex. Everytime I see a picture of that rifle it makes me drool. If it shoots half as good as it looks I could see why you chose to keep that thing. Good to hear that you guys did well. I do not know if the bad weather that sat on top of us all weekend ended up heading east towards you guys. We ended up filling all of our tags as well. I got mine the first evening after setting up camp and then I was able to guide everyone else on their hunts. Most of them were pretty easy to fill accept my brother-in-laws. It took to the last minute to fill his tag. I will get some pictures up once my dad sends them to me.
