it got cooler wed/thurday, both mornings we woke up to ice on our tents.
both days during the slow mid day time we went to the platte river and fly fished. pretty fun and a great time killer
Thursday we had enough of the river then started back to camp. We were leaving Friday and I had pretty much made up my mind to shoot at every legal goat I could.
we spotted a group of young males and I decided to try my luck, with about 30 min remaining.
after a short stalk they busted me at a distance, I ranged a buck 4 times at 86 yards and I decided to let another one fly. I drew back, got the sights where they needed to be and hit the release. after a second of arrow flight, I heard the "whomp" of the arrow hitting home, a dark spot appear where there should have been all white and a antelope take off and then fall after about 50-60 yards.
I did not have my camera so all I had is the selfie in the other thread.
Only me and one other guy tagged out, in reality we all should have gotten goats. both missed a few shots at 50-60 yards, which is really considered close.
We missed antelope at ranges from 40-140 yards with most shots at 80-100 yards....if you come out here with archery tackle then you better practice shooting distance. We would rarely move inside the 50 yard mark when we were putting in our range time.
It was a fun hunt, lots of wildlife and I cannot say enough good things about the people of Wyoming....they talk and dress funny but they are the nicest people I have ever came across.
would love to go back, the antelope was fun but I would rather chase mule deer and elk up in the high country, as well as get even with the trout on the Platte.
