First week of Archery Antelope was awesome out of 7 hunters we harvested 5 Pope and Young Bucks and 2 hunters missed multiple shots at trophy bucks. Our own Fred Eichler also harvested a nice Pope and Young buck bringing our total to 6 Pope and Young bucks in the first 2 days of season!! The weather looks great and we are looking forward to skinning some more antelope. All in all 100% opportunity on trophy bucks made for a great 1st week.
Second week was awesome also. We have 7 hunters in and we harvested 3 Pope and Young bucks the first day with one hunter missing on a nice buck. 2nd day we had 2 more Pope and Young bucks taken and another miss under 25 yards. Day Three we had another miss at 20 yards and on Day 4 we had another smaller buck taken. Making week 2 100% on multiple shot opportunities, 5 Pope and Young bucks taken, 1 Smaller buck and our last hunter missed at 20 yards and passed on a small buck.
Our 3rd week of Antelope hunting was rough. It rained almost everday, out of six hunters we took one Pope and Young Antelope. Two other hunters had bucks in range but it just didn’t happen. Our only non-guided client, harvested a Pope and Young buck on his second day. So only two Pope and Young bucks during this 4 days of hunting. Making our total for the season so far, 14 bucks taken, 13 of which make Pope and Young!!
4th week we have 5 clients and even though it rained the first 3 days there were light rain showers. We harvested 3 bucks, one of which makes Pope and Young, we had one missed at 35 yards and 1 small buck was passed. So now we have taken 17 bucks total 14 of which make Pope and Young.
