    Got my skull back.

    Probably the smallest buck anyone has ever shot, but 2012 spot and stalk. Trophy to me!



    Here's the hunt. We tried again in 2013, I got an arrow into one but it was a little far back and we found him the next day running around like nothing had happened.

    I think they are fine if you put them down quick and get the meat cooled off. If they are in the sage they can be more gamey than if they are in the grass or crop fields. If you put a bad shot on one and it runs 5 miles, its not going to be as good.

    I've seen a lot of people in the field being slovenly with the carcass and heard a lot of stories how they aren't good eating and I think they go hand in hand.

    I grew up eating them in NE wyoming though, so I don't think I'm an impartial judge.

    I understand. Antelope is my favorite meat. I grew up in Wyoming as well. I was curious how this one ate since it was young.

    Me Too Colorado! Growing up in Wyoming there were many years that a trophy wasn't a priority. Antelope was good target practice for deer and elk.

    I've shot smaller but the young buck I shot with my bow was some really good eating for some reason.

    congrats,
    The trophy is in the rememberance of the hunt. I have larger in my horn pile that I seldom even look at and smaller that are on my wall because of how great the hunt was. I assume it is a bow harvest and anything with a bow is overcoming adversity. Kudo's to you on a great experience.
