If any of you out there are looking for a fun out of state big game hunt that won't hurt your wallets much consider Antelope. My brother and i were drawn for double tags in south dakota(each get two goats) and so The first weekend of October we headed out on the 10 hour drive to right by the border of montana, and hunted for three days. We each shot a buck and a doe, and we had never hunted for them before. We are usually strictly deer hunters when it comes to big game, but it was a blast! It was physically harder then deer, but sighting them was much easier, the stalking is what was hard. All the land we hunted was public walk-ins, so any body could do it. It is a drawing, and double tags were only like 200 apiece. It was an amazing trip, and we would go next year, but we're planning caribou next year.

I have been on 5 hunts in the last 7 years for antelope. I love those hunts. We head out to Wy- Close to Gillette. We hunt public land out there, but the crazy WY land laws are really starting to get tough. That is the reason that we took this year off. Might have to look into SD trip. Antelope are a great animal. Amazing eyes and speed. Its so different seeing all the animals out there and not being able to stalk very close. They are a great learning tool for young hunters also. I have gone deer hunting and shot one deer in my first 5 years of hunting. Since my first antelope hunt, I have gone 8 deers for 7 seasons(party hunting). Just gave me more confidence and more patience.
