Washington Pronghorn
« on: July 09, 2017, 10:58:01 AM »
For some people seeing antelope isn't a big deal, but for me seeing them here in Washington is a big deal. I especially liked this group which had a pretty good buck and a couple of youngsters too. These were out quite a ways, so the pics are max zoom and then cropped a bunch, the quality isn't the greatest, but the excitement makes up for it. Who knows, maybe I will live long enough to see a Washington pronghorn hunt?
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

I have seen them up by Mansfield, not this herd. I have also heard they are running around all south of Yakima to the TC area. Love pics of the goats....

My buddy in Mansfield had photos of a newborn fawn last summer.

I saw 3 bucks just NE of Mansfield last night. One buck was almost mature and the other two were dinks. The big buck had a red collar. Good looking critters for sure. No photos of them, but they're hanging around Mansfield, mainly to the east about 5 miles.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter
