New Mexico Antelope

New Mexico Antelope

I had been hunting pronghorn for 6 years since winning a New Mexico antelope hunt through Buckmasters BADF for disabled hunters. That trip got me hooked and i've been applying for the mobility-impaired season ever since. Every year I got really close to taking a big goat but I watched them slip away every time. But I kept coming back.

Last year, I got set up with 2 really good guides and we became great friends right away. They were as into goat hunting as I was. On the evening before my hunt began, just before dark, I stopped Roger (he and his fiance', Audrey, were my new guides), so I could glass a doe i had spotted in the distance. We were about to leave the area and head home, but I wanted one last look. This monster buck was grazing nearby, and we sat speechless watching him until dark.

The next morning we were right back there, of course, but he was nowhere to be found. About 5 minutes later, we rolled up this rise and there he stood 300 yards away. Instantly, the two does he was with started down the fence and he followed behind, as did we. Well, by the grace of God we slowly got him between us and the fence because the does had gone under and left, but not stovepipe, his rack was too big and he couldn't get under. I got my shot and I took it. It was a thrill of my lifetime to roll up on this magnificent animal. It was even better to have my dad and best friends there with me.

My guide, Roger McQueen, and I pose with the giant buck I nicknamed "stovepipe" for obvious reasons. This monster goat boasted 18 1/2 inch horns when taken and later scored 90 6/8 SCI which puts him 24th All Time.
