PostSubject: Been out antelope hunting   December 19th 2018, 5:49 pm

First time ever at antelope hunting and sunday my dad and brother and i headed over to the unit to take a look around. One hell of a place!

We ran into some antelope and got  a shot at a little over 300 yards with my AR10. And of course I missed because the little bastard took off just as i squeezed the trigger Deadhorse

We discovered one hell of a place to visit! I personally would visit during the summer due to heat and rattlers. Its called Picture Canyon, located in the National Grass Lands by Pritchett Colorado.

This place has  carvings/ paintings by ancient indians in the area, they've found stone projectiles over 12,000 years old!

A very neat place to visit. Also, there are cave dwellings the tribes used to live in as well! I took a picture of one of them. They lived in the area from 250BC to 500 AD.

Have you been to Mesa Verde? Heard it has changed from 30 years ago but what part of Colorado hasn't.

I have always wanted to try for Antelope, i have never even seen one, i just haven’t been where they are. I know they have them South of me down toward Boise. We can put in for a Permit/Draw hunt for them, but i never have. My Grandfather told me MANY years ago about an Uncle of mine trying for them in Wyoming I believe? Story goes, he had a pretty rough time but He did finally get one, My Grandfather asked him all about the hunt? He told my Grandpa to take Plenty of Shells, that there was a LOT of Air around an Antelope Very Happy

Here’s one I took In Wyoming this year.  They are fun to hunt!  Can be frustrating too as you can always see them but getting in for a shot can be another story!

No idea why that last ones sideways?  Posting from my phone probably doesn’t help!

the does are the watch dogs and warn the bucks, try a buck dummy to bring the bucks in next time. my friend did this and he was flat on the ground behind the dummy fake buck and the next thing he knew a huge buck ran over the dummy buck and him, he turned around and shot the real buck. bucks think with the gun between their legs and that makes them really dumb and easy to get. same thing for humans who only think this way.

I've seen the decoy thing work.  I'd be pretty hesitant to use one during any firearms season though.  It's an interesting way to hunt them!  Guy's are using decoys for elk hunting sometimes too but once again not during a firearms season.  Where I hunt antelope in Colorado there's actually trees around which helps tremendously if your spot and stalk hunting.  I enjoy that type of terrain much more than the usual antelope country like where I hunted them in Wyoming this past year.

We saw a bunch of antelope but man! We damn near had to drive to the Oklahoma border lol. Just so much land and its all flat or rolling hills. We drove up over a hill one day and saw a herd of 50 by a water tank. 500-600 yards away, they still took off!

It was a lot of fun though. We want go back and explore that picture canyon area.
