Thats a decent goat Junkie , i think you are real close on score 74-77 Hes a little light on mass and cutters to go much higher. My pops used to say a book Antelope is like a book ram , you will know instantly when you see it

If I arrived and someone was late was there I would move on but maybe thatís not how itís done. Anyways they ended up shooting the buck on us when we were stalking it. He wasnít a monster just a good buck and wouldnít score worth crap so there was no point in doing what they did.

We moved on and found another decent buck and did a good stalk on him and she got him. So had some good memories made later on.

Maybe it will get posted on here, I will certainly recognize it.

Last time we hunted there had the same thing happen were hunter literally pulled in two car lengths in front of us to after the same buck.

Maybe if they made the season a bit longer there would be this mad rush by hunters I donít know. But there were hunters driving all over all day. Very busy.
Kinda had the same thing happen to us on opening morning.. we got to a road approach on the grazing lease about 30 min before legal light, but it wasnít long before another guy parked about 150 yards down the road on a slight hilltop, and another guy parked around the corner on the road at around the same time. They might have been together, i donít know. They got out and started walking in before there was even enough light to see. The animals could have been 250 yards from the road, and nobody would have known.
My son and i backed out and went after #2 on the hit list and got him at around 10am. We had an audience on our hunt - a fella in a white ford parked beside us as we were walking in, and he watched us get into position to make our shot. He was still there after dragging the buck out, and i guess it was his #2 as well. He said there was a ton of pressure on the EID stuff where his #1 buck was located, so he came over to look for this one. He was about 20-30 min too late though
If youíre reading this - i hope you got a good one, Dustin!

Few tanks in those photos from the looks of it.

Some great bucks floating around this year. Wife shot a hammer of a short buck down in Wyoming that scored up in the 80s. Sure amazing how mass adds up quick!

A long time to wait for a tag, but it worth it.

October Zone so the family member with the tag still has a few weeks to decide what buck to pursue...
Looks very similar to mine which I rough scored myself at 73 2/8. Youd be right around mid 70's id say
