I love that suburban In the back ground . !! Have you had it since the beginning ?I've only take four antelope, four trips to Wyoming. Shot two with my 25-06 & 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip, and two with my 30-06 & 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. The two rifles are almost identical, Remington 700 CDL's with 6x Leupold scopes. Each is pillar bedded & free floated with the triggers set to 3#.
The 30-06 with my 2018 antelope:
The 25-06 with my 2012 antelope:
I do most of my hunting with those two rifles. The 25-06 has only taken coyote, antelope & mule deer. The 30-06 has a more extensive list of species taken.
Edited to add - before I started hunting them, I figured I might have to take some really long shots at antelope. That hasn't been the case at all. I've taken two at about 160 yards and the other two in the 240 - 255 yard area.
I thoroughly enjoy hunting, cooking and eating antelope! Some of the best meat I've ever enjoyed.
What caliber is your double?Thinking I'll give the Mortimer a walk for a doe pronghorn this year. The pre-64 Winchester model 70 has popped one, and I've got a Ruger 77 in 7x57AI that is desperate need of a new stock in the line up as well, but it would be the best to sling a 350 grain round nose bullet at 1800 fps at a speed goat.

I like that roughly 40 year old Suburban, but it is a beater! Not mine, it's on the Montana/Wyoming ranch where I often hunt. 4-speed manual, 3/4 ton four wheel drive. Works pretty good still. I don't think it gets used much, except during hunting season anymore.I love that suburban In the back ground . !! Have you had it since the beginning ?
