    rsz_img_20171007_115833414.jpg 3rd day of hunting finally found one worth shooting. After 2 1/2 days of hunting my families private land I went to the public national grassland and found this guy in a prarie dog town chasing off challengers and trying to keep his does together.

    Numbers are way down here it took a lot of glassing several areas then a lot of walking to get in range.

    Nice job. Seems like a lot of folks are saying the good ones seem to be more difficult to find this year.....

    Congrats......

    Nice Trophy, congrats! I"ve shot many whitetails, in the woods. I would love to try Antelope in the wide open, seems like a greater challenge.

    Antelope horns are made of hair and shed every year.
    When shed the base of the horn is hollow and fit on a bone cone that is part of the antelope's skull. The bone core is covered in a rubber like substance.
