Ill be out on Tuesday!
Sadly no goats for me this year. Maybe next year.
Oh man Sept can't get here soon enough, looking forward to getting buzzed at several times !
Yo, right here!
From: Bob H in NH
Was very pysched to start next week, but will now wait for a bit cooler weather! Something about running into a rattlesnake has me rethinking my plan.
I will say for a NH to WY transplant, your first rattlesnake rattle is a bit un-nerving
Well, i did until today. No tag.
Headed out on Saturday!
Sent the wife to RMSGear to pick up some VPA 2-blades before my Iron Will's come in on Friday. A quick tune tonight and I'll be out the door at 4am to chase these goats
Meeting up with 2 friends in mid Sept & taking my adult son out for his 1st Goat trip. Will be my 1st time this time of year, last 3 were opening in Aug..
Would you shoot this one opening morning or wait to see if a bigger one gives you a chance?
Have a great Bowhunt, BB
I’d shoot him opening day and surprise the hell out of my bowhunting partner with a phone call that lights up his blind!!
How about one of these guys?
How about one of these guys?
I still get it from time to time but they tell me that you can’t win if you don’t enter, so I guess I’ll just look around my living room and be satisfied with the ones I had mounted. Sure do miss that delicious meat though !
I was passing on antelope this year, however, now I'm thinking an over the counter Nebraska tag. Always thought that this guy was cool. Still haven't shot a "heart shaped" antelope.
I’d probably shoot any one of those bucks, butcherboy. Those all NM bucks?
Dialed in the BHs. Ready to roll in a few short hours. Putting kids to bed, shackin up with my missus, and crashing out.
Headed out in the am. Montana opens tomorrow!
Yep t-roy, all NM bucks. I’ve seen a lot of high 70” to low possibly mid 80” bucks. Maybe one 90”. Bad thing is, it’s a fairly small area with a decent amount of good bucks and the stupid G&F decided to increase the tags this year. The Antelope are going to take a long time to recover now.
We always seemed to have weird ones each year.
Way cool looking goat, Greg!
I was never one to Bowhunt for head gear in my now 63 years bowhunting (I started in 1956). I have put a size on my next Whitetail & no longer shoot Does ONLY because I have been blessed with over 100. Like BB, I enjoy shooting various critters with a camera too. I'm more excited for my son being his 1st trip for Goats. HE HAS the fever.
I'm ready but still some time to wait. Want to spot & stalk with a decoy and will be heading to Montana mid September to give that plan a go.
I have the fever. Leaving for nw South Dakota in one hour. Will be in a blind in 24 hours from now.
Me! Couldn’t squeeze in this hunt this year.
Good luck to all!
I like to hunt when they're chasing so I be out there Sept 15th.
