View Full Version : Tough Year...

Well I have been hunting the last 3 weeks and I have nothing to show for it lol. Hunted archery antelope in NV for 5 days. Got to 60 yards, drew back, they spooked to 80 yards and I shot under him lol... Then I went up on the mountain for deer for the next 7 days, missed a 30" 3x3 and a smaller buck. Went up again this week and nothing again lol. It's been a tough year of hunting for me. I had my hopes high before the season started because I had this 190ish" buck spotted while I was scouting 2 weeks before the hunt:
Once the season started, he was no-where to be found. Better luck next year I guess lol...

So has anyone killed anything so far this year?? If so lets see some pictures. I need to see something dead to make me feel better lol...

archery hunting antelope is rough!!! It took me 4 years before I finally got one! It is definitely a patience tester. But like Elkcrazedfrk said, never give up!! It will pay off!!

Archery antelope has been tough for me too. Finally got a tag for a unit kinda close to home where we always see them. Now that I have the tag they are sparse. I have permission to hunt a couple of alfalfa fields where there is usually a herd of 60 in each. Now there are 0! Only two stalks this year.
