Re: Antelope hunting
Didn't get back out for Antelope yet, fighting bad chest cold till opening day of deer and elk. Filled my B tag for mule deer in 410 where my cabin is last Wed. Deer numbers are way down there as well, but LOTS of Elk. I took pics of a herd of about 400 across the road from my cabin, had 7 cows and the biggest body bull in the hollow behind my cabin. That boy made the cows look like calves he was so big. 1800 archery tags for 410 and a total of 355 rifle tags for that area, don't seem right. Yah, sour grapes cause I didn't get drawn again this year. You can't find a square yard of my land with out elk tracks on it, but very few deer tracks this year. I was up there 4 days and had only seen 6 head of mule deer, many whitetail found dead this summer and fall. Not blue-tonge but another infection going through them. Going out to 560 for goats again tomorrow. Drew an either sex and a dow/fawn for that area for antelope there. Still have my dear A-tag and general Elk tag to fill before the 27th, after tomorrow, will be the week-ends only for hunting. :'( Good luck to everyone. DP
