I was able to get a doe pronghorn permit for WY. I went over Thurs., day before my tag opened, to find a few. Got a couple of small groups located then set up camp. Ran into an older fellow last night and he told me of a couple hanging out in a 'park' above camp. Looked for them this morning but didn't find them. Started towards the area where I saw some last night and saw two does feeding across a hill. Checked to make sure it was public land as there's quite a bit of private land in the area, got a hill between me and them, topped it, found 'em. One 200gr bullet from a .338 Win Mag was all it took! ;)



Fried up some of the backstraps for dinner, not too bad!

Way to go Tyler. Obviously you kill well when my bad luck is not around. :D

How were the crowds? Did you look for any deer. ;) I am guessing you didn't have time with a dead goat in tow.

Crowds weren't bad. Only saw one other vehichle chasing goats, but lots chasing moose. Didn't look for any deer as I wanted to get the goat in the freezer and worked OT on Sat.
