Just got back from my Wy antelope hunt. Had a great time! Got to my unit mid afternoon and started seeing antelope immediately! Saw 8 bucks that night driving in. Woke up next morning to an inch of snow. I spotted this buck with over a dozen does glassing at first light. Put the spotting scope on him and I knew he was a nice buck so I stalked in to 300 yards and put him down in his tracks with 1 shot from my 270! He was even bigger then I expected when I got up to him!!! Not sure what he scores yet but it really doesnt matter, Im very happy with him!43264327432843294330 Saw alot more antelope on the way out and even got a coyote! Then I got a leftover doe tag and went to scout my 2nd choice unit for next year. I wasnt quite clear on the blm lines so I stopped at a ranch to clarify what was blm and after talking a while I was allowed to fill my doe tag on the ranch and invited to come back next year! There were some other hunters there and 1 guys 12 year old daughter got her first antelope. She even helped skin mine. Its always nice to see kids getting into hunting and it was a great experience!!!! Then I went up to North Dakota and visited some good friends for a day before coming home. All in all the whole trip was great!

Thanks everyone! Kaycee was in between the 2 units I hunted in. I always seem to end up in that area in the dark. Hope some year I get to see it in the daylight!

My antelope officially scored 76 0/8 and won 2nd place at the Big Horn Outdoor show in Spokane, WA!!!! 1st went to an 83 2/8 monster from NM. I was hoping to have him mounted for the show but my taxidermist hadn't got to him yet so I just took the horns. My mule deer scored 146 5/8 which was about what I was expecting since he has pretty weak forks all around. The taxidermist had him finished and he sure looks nice in my wall:) This giant double drop tine elk scored 412 and was killed by a kid in SE Washington this past year! Had a nice talk with Ryan Hatfield too. All in all the show was alot of fun!
