So many happy stories.. this ain’t one of them. 2015 I had a r7 tag and was elk hunting over there during archery - getting my ass handed to me. While eating dinner and drinking a cold beer I saw a herd of antelope with a buck in it walk over the hill. After another 2 beers I thought, “screw this elk hunting, I could go get that antelope”.

Yeah, let the circus begin. When I finally put my tag on the buck after having to reshoot my entire quiver, I heard an elk bugle. It was dark by then. Likely the bull bugling was the one killed a couple weeks later by a rifle permit holder within a 1/2 mile of where I was at.

That poor antelope might have took fewer arrows if he had hunkered down with the cavalry on last stand hill.

First one i ever shot in MT about 9 years ago, bad pic actually has good mass, I have been back to to that region a handful of times a couple hunting other times passing through for work. A true shame see the numbers continue to drop every year, was out there last week just passing through and hardly saw any.

I’ve never scored a single animal until after I have killed it.

Antelope is the most fun big game animal to hunt, you can see them all day long, you just have to figure out how to get within rifle range. That is as fun as pulling the trigger.

If you go hunting, not shooting, you can plan your hunt by the game available. If you don’t see what you want, go somewhere else. Region 7 is a huge area, I’ve taken plenty of antelope there.

Some scores have been good, some not so good, but every animal was shot for what he was, or the gun I was shooting, not for score…
