Antalope with a muzzeloader was a tought deal,when you see them they already know and are looking at you and running 200 plus yards at mach 1 .those beast are fast fast like 45 mph.only had like three shots all week at under a 100 yards running.no
results there.got to say that when we found the parrie dogs at one corner of a field and I got out the 17 HMR it was a blast smokeing them out to 125 or 150 yards.I must say that was neat.an they did'nt go to waste ,cause a hawk was swuping down and picking them up.how cool.

the elk hunting was also tough this year only seeing 9 elk all season,I normaly see over 150 ,I walked a scrub bush area on top of a distance ridge and kicked out a cow .my bro was right below were she ran to fill his cow tag.other than bear tracks and cold weather it was like void of elk this year.the drinks were good and we had fun anyway.also seen a few bucks and a couple of coytopes.
