I've looked at this site on few occasions recently and decided to join yesterday. after reading thru some of the forums I saw a few people mention to new members that they should introduce themselves on this forum so I figured I would go ahead and do it. I kind of explained my introduction to western hunting in my profile but I will paraphrase here. I love hunting antelope, in nd it's fairly tough to draw an any antelope tag, usually about 4 or 5 years in between successful draws. well I was on my 5th year of applying and I was super unlucky and didn't get drawn. after a few very bad winters and the antelope population dwindling the ndg&f shut down the antelope season in 2010. I had already waited too long since my last antelope hunt so I started searching the Wyoming game and fish website, found a leftover tag and bought it. I didn't know exactly what to expect as I had never hunted anywhere but in nd. I went out to Wyoming in oct of 2010, I was successful, and I've went back every year since. this is a pic of my 2010 wy antelope. I'm not sure if it worked or not.
this is a pic of my 2011 wy antelope. again not sure if it worked or not
in 2012 a buddy and I got region d mule deer tags and antelope doe tags. we each shot our does and my buddy shot a smallish 4x5. I did not get a mule deer and I do not have pictures of our does or my buddys mulie.
this is a pic of my 2013 wy antelope, it's the same pic as my avatar
this is my best antelope to date and I couldn't have been happier with him. he was just a shade over 15 inches and pretty much everything I wanted.
my buddy and I have been building up pp for wy for antelope, mule deer, and elk. 3 pp for each going into 2014. we're burning our antelope points this year, or hope to, we'll see how the draw turns out. probably burning our mulie points next year. and not too sure of what to do with our elk points. I am a deputy with a small county in nd. I've been married for 9 years and my wife and I have 2 boys, 6 and 4 year olds. my 6 year old started wrestling last year and he has been a ton of fun to watch. he's a pretty tough little bugger and it's been amazing seeing how his technique has come along. I wrestled in high school and college and I know wrestling is a tough sport to compete in, I think it might be even tougher being a spectator. ha ha. well that's about it for me, hopefully my pic inserts worked. if not i'll try to put them in my profile if I can figure that out.
