How big is a big antelope

I decided to buy a leftover antelope doe tag today, and head out today knowing very little about these animals. After talking with a few locals, I decided on a “walk in” area. About a half mile from the truck, I ran into this guy at 250 yds. I know he is a shooter, if I had a buck tag, but is this a really good buck?

Yes, that buck is over 75" and flirting with BC.
This is exactly what I was wondering. Watching a buck like this walk away from 250 yards will only make me a stronger man. I still can’t believe I came across this buck 15 minutes into my first DIY antelope hunt. I love this stuff!

I would keep a eye on that old boy and hope he sticks around long enough for you to draw a buck tag, and keep quiet about the location un-less you would want to P.M. me with the area and exact location. 🤣

I'd probably shoot myself in the foot and roll down the hill if I ran across him! VERY nice buck there.

He has plenty of mass and height. A little weak on the prongs, but I agree with above. He's flirting with B&C.

I conservatively see 19.5" mass, 5" prongs, and 15" length per horn. That makes 79"
