The antelope gave me the slip but I filled the freezer with elk steaks! The cow was alone, dry, and huge! The bull is obviously young and should be delicious! Weather was rough, 6 degrees Sunday morning! Marlin guide gun 45-70, leverevolution 325grain. Shots were 40 and 60yds. I can't seem to edit and rotate pics.

Good luck, Denis. I, too, love elk, but, especially antelope, though I've never had a chance to hunt either one. Fortunately, have had good friends that were willing to share meat after a hunt.

Opening morning was good to me! The cooler weather had the bucks answering natures call! Smith and Wesson model 1500, 300 win mag, federal blue box 150 grain, 120yd shot sitting position, complete pass thru double lung. After the shot he ran into a stand of trees, came out the other side making snow angels, I took that as a good sign! Didn't have my phone opening day so these are day two picks. Packed the hinds out day one and the rest day two. Steep country, the pics don't do it justice! The postcard mountain is Mt Meeker in all its glory! 4 for 5 with one tag to go, doe antelope.

Edit: all the pics are sideways . The live buck was spotted on private on the drive in. Also saw a pair of cow moose on private! Was a first, have seen droppings but these were the first live moose in this area for me.

That looks like very rugged country. You are having a very good season. Congratulations. How far up did you climb the tree?

I hang it as high as I can reach if I have to leave it overnight. The biggest threat to it is generally coyotes so I try to get it out of their reach. Lions and bears can climb better than I so the hope is they feed on the carcass and leave the meat in the tree alone for a night. I usually hang a piece of sweated up clothing with it. In this case it also shaded the meat late in the day.

My 2018 big game season came to an end a couple hours ago, with my fix for one of my favorite big game meats. Couple miles from my house, 150yd shot Smith and Wesson model 1500 300 win mag, 150 grain federal blue box. Caught her high after she got up from a couple hour rest, DRT. Never tried antelope liver and onions, tomorrow night I'm gonna give it a try. I love fresh elk liver, I'm not sure this will come close to that but I'll find out. Time for geese and coyotes. Unless that badger shows up in my yard again, then he's next! He caught me empty handed the other day and I wasn't about to go hand to claw with a badger with a bad attitude!

With season winding down, all I have to show is a couple that I got in the swamp with a bow.
Hopefully I'll get a crack at something this Saturday, the last day of muzzleloading season.
