That's a tall one! Congrats. B&C awards is 80 and alltime 82. P&Y minimum is 67...which is a joke! Looks like he'll make it to me!

That's a great looking buck! What's your opinion of the new way they're giving out goat tags now?
As in not assigning ranches? This is only the second antelope tag I’ve ever drawn so I’m no expert on the subject

That's what I was talking about. A lot of people I know aren't happy, especially since the landowners control how many tags they can give out now (the way I understand it?). A herd could get hammered pretty hard if someone was out to make a quick buck and I hope that isn't the case.

We hunted all public, but the landowner I met during the hunt said we could hunt all his property. Just to leave the gates how we found them. I was under the impression that he had bigger fish to fry than worrying about antelope or antelope hunters. I’m sure some landowners will take the quick buck and get rid of all the antelope they can because they compete with the cows to some extent, and because the grass is already sparse. But I didn’t see that first hand in my area
