The antelope in Wyoming took a hit this weekend. I helped my Dad and Brother out Saturday and they both took bucks on opening day.

My brother Matt, bagged his buck about an hour into the season. We found this buck bedded the night before opening day, and Matt didnt mess around looking for a better one. We stalked close and let him walk to us and Matt made a nice 140 yard shot on a classy looking antelope.



Another look with Matt, Dad, and I...



Later in the day, with an hour or so of light left, Dad decided to shoot his buck. We stalked this buck and Dad made a good shot with his 25/06. Not his biggest antelope, but he was happy, as he always is when he gets to hunt with his sons.



Another of Dad, Matt, and I...

Congrats on the goats. Looks like you guys had a good time. I predict that you're not done posting antelope pictures this year. ;)

Nice goats Buzz, although I am more interested in seeing pics of your wife with a nice buck instead of your ugly mug. ;)

Buzz,

You got any details? Were they running with does, or did you catch the unlucky guys? How many bucks you all see???

How high is your brother's?

Gunner,

The bucks were running does around and also chasing off younger bucks.

I really didnt keep track of how many bucks we saw the entire trip, but I'd have to guess 75ish or so. We saw quite a few good bucks, the horn growth was good this year.

Matts antelope is 13 5/8 inches tall, first and second quarter measurements are 6 and 6 2/8 prong is 5 4/8. I green scored it at 74 5/8. Its the best one he's ever bagged.

I had a great time on the hunt. Buzz was able to scout for dad and I. All I had to do was pull the trigger and drag a little.

Oak- I am definitely not 12 but I do read a lot of the posts.
