Default Antelope Archery Hunt in the Books!!

Well we’re home from our first Archery Antelope hunt cant wait to do it again. There were some major highs and lows missed shots and hits. We ended up tagging out on two Beauties. Can’t wait to do it again.

Nice! Love the archery antelope draw season. One month to go for rifle and I would have traded that for archery in an instant if I could have.

Great hunt guys.....nice bucks!! Did you guys stalk them? Or did they come screaming into a decoy?

Spot and stalk for both we tried decoying them. The best one we had decoy was the very first but he stopped short at 87yards. We used the lay of the land to make the stalk on My buds he made a great shot the lope came up out of Cooley to investigate and he made the shot.

Congrats on a couple great goats! And like a lot of others said, great job on the pictures. It will be nice to look back in 20 years and have those to remember it all by.

Congrats on 2 fine bucks. How were the numbers of antelope in your opinion? How many stalks did you try until you guys connected? I cant wait until my next archery antelope hunt as well, it was a fun hunt.

Take care.

From my opinion the numbers were pretty decent that being said I live 10Hrs from the zone and very rarely make it down South. We probably averaged around 10 Stalks a day we tried to only do stalks when they were in a good position or we spotted a defensive buck.
