MT Antelope
« on: June 01, 2020, 03:14:07 PM »
Who else is in?  I should have about 80% chance to draw.

I just read the anticipated draw date is Aug 6, 9+ weeks makes WA look pretty speedy.

Anyone hear about the general herd health?  I ask because of the problems WY has had, my MT family and contacts aren't into antelope so I have zero intel about what's going on over there now regarding antelope.

My buddy in the SE corner said herd health is outstanding. Spring has been mild. Things are looking good.

Its a blast
make sure you scout this summer and knock on some doors
and make sure you dont go too late in the season, the horns sometimes come off

Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Thanks
It was so cool to watch them rutting and I actually watched the herd buck and the buck I shot fighting the night before the opener
Decided I liked him better than the herd buck
He scored 71

If you get drawn you will have great time
You will see lots of antelope in eastern MT
Hunt onX and landowner permission is a must although tons of BLM land

I am in for MT along with a couple of friends from AZ.
There are only so many sunsets left.                         
He wanted a Hawken rifle 50 caliber or better. He settled for a 30, but dam it was a genuine 300 WIN MAG you couldn't go no better.

for overall heath of the heard,  I go by the number of road kills, it looks pretty good. I often wonder what the road kill take is for Deer and Antelope in MT, must be staggering!
