    Just got back from New Mexico on an antelope hunt. We had great success 25 out of 26 hunters scored bucks. The one who didn't shot at 3 and missed all of them. I got the second biggest buck out of everybody. I went with Pete Trujillo of High Mountain Outfitters. There were only 3 hunters with my outfitter, the rest of the hunters were just the others on the ranch at the same time with another outfitter. I highly recomend this guide, if you want to contact him call 505-751-7000. In the picture that is me on the right and Pete on the left.

    Sp3,

    Nice goat! What gun/scope? What yardage? Any details of the stalk? I'd love to hear it.

    I used my Ruger M77 .270 with Federal Premium 130gr. noslers and a Leupold VX3 3.5-10 scope. He was about 250 yds out. I missed my first shot, but it didn't seem to faze him a bit. My second shot connected pefectly in his lungs and he dropped right there. I chased a buck that had to be at least 17" for a whole day, but couldn't get within 1000 yds of him. The second day of the hunt was pretty rainy and windy in the morning but it cleared up and I took my buck about 10:00 AM. I seen probably 200 goats throughout the weekend, it was a good ranch.

    Sounds like a great hunt. I'm guessing that's up in northern NM right?

    I've only eaten antelope once. That critter must have lived off sage. Talk about infused flavor. ;f It was tastey though.

    If you get a good goar there is nothing better to eat, if you get a bad one you can't hardly choke it down.

    Nice looking goat. A couple weeks ago I stalked one to within 30 yards and blew it. Getting that close is easy, makeing your bow and arrow do what is is supposed to is the tricky part.
