Shot this lope opening morning (8/22/10). Hit the left lung and blew out the right shoulder using a 270 Weatherby Mag with 130 gr nosler ballistic tip handloads. Sorry for all the blood.

Thanks. Anyone know why antelope stink?? I always forget what they smell like until I'm around one.
YOU eat sagebrush and run around in that heat at 60mph and tell me what you smell !!? :eek:
I love watching a first timer field dress one (seems I turned green with my first one too)
remember - lopey meat is toxic. Send it all to me for proper disposal
BTW. NICE one !
Nice antelope, Muledeer !

I'm not very experienced at field judging antelope, but I can tell this one looks big. Glad you had a good hunt.
AKKKKK twist that knife in my gut :(

Ok I lied. It's not all jerky.:o
for a minute there I thought the Nevada heat must have gotten to you :rolleyes:
lopey meat is about the only game meat we eat here.
