Default Speed goat pics

Hey guys - just got back from our antelope hunt out west. Got a buck, although not a huge one. Didn't even get him measured, but I'm guessing around 11-12 inches. It was fun, though, because I had to crawl over 400 yards to get into position to shoot him. I was shooting a Ruger 77 mk II 7mm WSM with a Bushnell 42006-24x40.

On our last day, I got to crawl -again-for what seemed like forever to get in place to shoot a doe with my Win. 94 30-30. I have to say; those Hornady LeveRevolution shellsare UNBELIEVABLE!! At 200 yards it left a hole the size of a quarter on the entrance side and one the size of a golf ball on the way out.

Yah most of the time guys do have to do alot of crawling to get into position but thats part of antelope hunting and its half the fun i think. Congrats on a nice buck. Got any pics of your doe?

Antelope taste a lot like deer to me, but yet they seem to have kind of a different subtle 'extra' flavor to them that I can't really describe. It's like you're eating deer with some type of almost smokey seasoning added. (that's probably a poor description, but I can't think of any other way to put it.)

I'm not all that experienced with goats but prior to hunting them for the first time last year, I'd heard a lot of people complain about how they smell, how they taste, etc. Someone told me that the key to the taste was to make sure they got cut up and put on ice right away, instead of sitting in the truck/trailer/whatever until you got back home to process them. So that's what I did with the ones I got last year and all them we took this year, too.Theguy said that the temps are usually too warm to let them sit for awhile like you do with deer. Plus, their hides do stink so the sooner you get the meat away from that, the better, I think. So far, so good, I guess; I have no complaints over how they taste, anyway.

Thanks. I do have a couple pics of the doe, although unfortunately they aren't 'good' pics from the field.

I'll try to upload them so that they have to be viewed separately, since they're kind of bloody.

Here's a shot of the doe's inside cavity, showing how the Hornday LeveRevolution performed. Caution: it's kind of graphic.
