my nephew mitchel got lucky enough to get "drawn" for archery antelope this year, hes NEVER hunted before or even own a bow. he practiced in my back yard with my equipment over the summer and we went up to his area yesterday for a couple days of goat chasing. (the chances of bagging one was probably around 1%) antelope are easy to find but very hard to get with a bow, rifle is about 99% successful but archery is about 10% for avid hunters.......we see our first antelope, a buck and a doe at around 7am yesterday, we make a plan, blow up our "decoy" and set out on the stalk, we are only into the stalk about 10 minutes and as we sneak around a juniper bush, (while holding the decoy in front of us) the buck is CHARGING us from about 100yards away, we quickly kneel down and try to get ready as he is coming FAST, mitchell has NEVER hunted before and we are both excited as the plan is working perfectly. he trys to get an arrow knocked as the buck stops and i range him at 43yards, mitchell is shaking as i tell him the yardage but draws and shoots as the buck turns broadside......YOU HIT HIM! i say as the buck turns and bounds away about 20 yards.....the shot is not perfectly placed so we have to track him for about a half a mile and we find him laying under a tree......we then make a new plan and wait for a while then sneak in and finish him.......mitchell did a great job for his first hunt and cant wait for his ELK hunt which starts in a couple weeks, the buck was a nice one and after i did a quick scoring job that day he will make the pope and young RECORD book for antelope with a bow........pretty good for his first hunt ever........

Congratulate your nephew and big props to you for keeping and passing on the tradition of the hunt. I learned more from my early years of hunting, about life, responsibility and all the good stuff than I did anywhere else. Good job!

Good job!
BBQ goat, tortillas and pecodagio. Chop up fresh meat in a 5gal. bucket and soak it in lime juice. Grill it and through a party.
