Bought a leftover licence, so got two for antelope- Sept 11 is close. Had to move the hunt up because of neighbors' schedules; they want to do the early deer hunt on the 15th on a relative's ranch, might get to go along :wink: Been shooting the Marlin 375 and its ready. Will spend a few days up in the hills with the trailer and dogs and neighbors, can smell the campfire and coffee already. A river full of trout near where I hunt, so they're on the menu. I'm a meat hunter, and the best tasting antelope are young does, skin em quick,wash em down good. Eat backstraps cornmeal coated panfried with butter- gonna clog up my arteries gooood! Oh why do I have to work for a living!? The next 3 months are hunting fishing heaven. OH oh, blue grouse on the 1st, pack the Beretta silver snipe and a box of #7s.
