  1. Well no elk tag so I figured I’d get my mind off of it by working up a new load for deer/antelope sized critters and I’m trying to decide what bullets to try. I like two holes so I’ve always shot partitions or Barnes but I’m thinking of extending my range a little to maybe 400 or 500 yards. I planned to use the TTSX since they shoot so well, but I won’t have enough velocity beyond about 350 yards to know for certain that I’ll get good expansion. Partitions don’t group as well for me at the longer distances. After doing some reading and researching I’m finding good info on the Hornady ELD X and Berger. Sounds like Bergers generally explode on impact which gives great results if you hit in the ribs, but less consistent results if you’re a little far forward into the shoulder. The ELD X is pretty new so I mostly find info about accuracy, but not a lot of detail about performance on game. Although what I have found about on game performance has been mostly very positive. Do any of you have recommendations for a solid performer for these conditions? I might have enough points in the next year or two to hunt the strip which was another reason I was thinking about Barnes but I’d want something that I know will expand as the velocity drops off. If it performed well on elk that would be nice, but not my main focus right now. Another plus to the ELDX is they cost about the same as standard rounds so I could afford to practice with my actual hunting load. Thanks for any input!

    The power of water

    The view from my in laws back porch. Every year at this time the water brings them in. Some times my mother in law will get a picture with five of our big game species in it at the same time.

    Az Pronghorn and Cinnamon Black bear

    Two more trophies going home....these "wall pedestals" are becoming a very popular way to upgrade your mount without the space and cost of a full pedestal. Love the color on this bear....

    AZGFD Account pending

    My azgfd account says antelope pending. It also says I have 0 indiv.Bonus Points. I had 21bp going into this draw. Can this mean I'm drawn or not? TJ

    Some old finds

    I thought I'd post a pic of some old finds-sorry, no ATL's. The elk shed is not only my first brown ever, but found on my first day of my first-ever turkey hunt, in 2004, unit 27. It's unique, it's just the eye guard. There was obviously some trauma to this bull early in the growing season. The antelope shed (sheath) was found (among others) on my first antelope hunt, in Wyoming, 2005. The Coues shed was found on my first Coues hunt in the Chiriquahua's, 2004. It's the smallest 3 point shed I've ever found.

    Opening Day Archery Giant Down.....

    Jim made a great shot to secure his opening day giant. I had watched this Antelope for the past couple years. After Jim called with his tag I started the process of finding the three largest Antelope in the unit. I look at over 70 bucks in the process of elimination. This buck was our #1 buck. I had decided we would hunt him until he got in an area where he would be real hard to hunt with a bow and arrow and then we would move and hunt buck #2 until this buck came back to his normal routine. Luckily for us the first stalk was the only stalk we would need.
  7. When I fill out my hunting license and apply for a draw I do so believing that the AZGFD is keeping my information confidential. It is not that I am paranoid but I absolutely hate solicitors, if I want your product or service I will come to you don't come banging on my door or send me junk in the mail. So, the root of this all... I was lucky to receive an Antelope tag this year 1 of 4 for the area I chose. I came home to find a post card with my name on it that says Congrats on your Antelope Draw! you have received 10% off your next mount. The post card came from a private business so I must be oblivious to the fact that azgfd is giving away my name and address every time I draw for a hunt or these guys are dug up my info some other way. Has this happened to you?

    AZGFD online draw poll

    Well what do you guys think about the online draw? Never have the time to go to the meetings and they never send out surveys about this topic. It has gone really bad for me the last couple draw cycles. So many errors and phone calls. Hope this poll is helpful. Maybe it can be shown to the commission.
  9. Well i just got my antelope back from who i consider the best taxidermist on the planet. I drew a wyoming antelope tag last year with my brother in law and our sons. Had a great time and knew who exactly i wanted to do my mount for my first speed goat. Dale and Heather are very good friends of my wife and mine. And two the most amazing people you could ever met. We are very blessed to have such wonderful friends. I just wanted to say thanks to them and their business Wild Heritage Taxidermy. I would not trust any one else with my trophies. And every time they seem to amaze me this with work. I cannot wait till my bull get finished, you guys will be in awe. Thanks again dale and heather for doing such a great job on all my animals. you can see just how exact they got him from the day i shot him to the day they finished.

    Sweet Antelope buck

    I went up north to put a couple of cams in elk country. I was able to shed hunt for a couple of hours and only found an old busted but heavy shed. It was rainy and it even snowed so I wasn't able to go out as much as I wanted but we had a great time. I haven't taken a lot of pics of antelope but I thought this buck was awesome! The elk and deer were pretty shaggy but it was nice to see some animals and get outdoors for the weekend. Here are a few pics from the trip.

    Pics of my latest outing

    I was out for a couple days and snapped some pics. I have to say it's nice when someone says "Did you see anything?" and instead of just a "yes" I can show them some of the things I saw. What you don't get to see is another 2 groups of bulls, a buck, turkeys, and a couple coyotes. The bulls all had voracious appetites as it appears they are prepping themselves for battle. I was also treated to a little symphony last night. It sounded like a young bull testing out his vocals, but it was music to my ears and a sound I really look forward to hearing each year. To all with bull tags, you are lucky Check out his left side turkey foot! I really love this picture! I really don't know what I did to deserve her sticking her "tongue" out at me! The antelope pics were taken from my camp on morning number one (there were 2). That's a nice way to start the day! Peek-A-Boo
  15. First off I just want to thank the lord for all of his help in my life and for letting me hunt his terrific creations. I drew a camp navajo pronhorn tag and to be honest I didint think it would happen. I am just wondering if there is anyone who is familiar with this hunt and can give me a few pointers? I have heard I wont get much time to scout so any tips would be awesome. It is a archery only tag and I do have a clearence for the restricted area. Thank you.
  16. Can't wait to see everyone kill photos. Good luck to everyone. Cole
  17. Here is my 2012 spot and stalk Archery Antelope from unit 1. This was probable one of the funest and hardest hunts I have ever been on. He green scored 81"

    Stumpy

    I want to first thank Lance Crowther, Jon Vance and Jake Lindsey of Timberland Outfitters for all your hard work in making my hunt such a success and my husband, Sam, for his 100% love and support. This year I drew an antelope and an October bull elk tag. What are the chances of that? With that, wouldn’t you think I wouldn’t have any luck left? Well whether it was luck, dedicated guides, supportive husband or my good shooting (ha,ha), it all came together just as Jon planned. My husband often asks me if I’m excited about something. Most of the time my honest response is “I’m looking forward to it but I can’t say I’m excited.” Well upon learning what tags I had drawn, I told Sam. “Okay this time I’m EXCITED!!!” The excitement has only been building since the release of the fall draw results. As Lance put it a couple of days before my hunt, I was “like a lil girl waiting for Christmas morning wondering what’s in those packages with my name on them!!” With all this excitement came nervous feelings. What if I get buck fever and miss the shot? What if I do something to mess it up, etc. etc. I was excited and nervous at the same time. Upon our arrival for the hunt Jon took us out to where he had been keeping daily watches on this antelope which Lance named Stumpy. We were to bed him down so we would know where to find him in the morning. Our look out was like FOUR MILES AWAY from where Stumpy and his does were, so good optics paid off. The most we saw that late afternoon were a couple of white butts within a lava flow. Rain set in and you couldn’t see much after that except the end of a rainbow. There went a little more of my luck. Jon was confident the antelope would be in about the same area in the morning. Remember my nervousness mentioned above? Well to add to my nerves, Jon shared that Lance believed Stumpy was the biggest buck in the unit and that Jake was coming up from Tucson to video tape my hunt. Can you imagine how nervous that could make someone? I didn’t think I’d be able to sleep a wink that night. Surprisingly I was able to sleep…a wink or two. The next morning we left camp around 4am. Sam and Jake were to stay at the spotting place to find where the antelope were that morning. Jon and I rode down to the low land to wait. If any other hunters were to come in we would start heading toward last night’s spot but if no other hunters came we would wait for Jake to join us. Once Jake spotted the antelope he would ride his quad down to join us and lead us to where he had seen the antelope. Sam would stay on the hill for the show. It was a cool cloudy morning and to be able to spot the antelope from such a distance you really needed some sun to pick up their white color. We did see other antelope; 3 bucks and about 10 does. Jon was very patient with me. He could tell without optics none of them were Stumpy but I’d ask him to check just to make sure. In all of his days of watching Stumpy, he had never spotted him outside of the lava flow as those other antelope were. After about three hours Jon glassed up an antelope in the lava flow. Jake too had spotted them and was on his way down to meet us. We drove a ways down the road and started the hike in. Our hike was about a mile and half in. We walked keeping piles of lava rock between us and the antelope. Thank goodness I was with Jon and Jake because once we got into the lava flow everything looked so different and I had no clue where the antelope were. As hunters do, we would stop very briefly to glass for heads, ears, horns, etc. and move on. When we got to the where Jon and Jake thought the antelope were we couldn’t locate them. Jon climbed up on a large mound of lava rock for a better look and immediately caught sight of a doe. He eased himself down and our final stalk began. We only walked about 50 yards and Jon stopped and told me to get ready. I could only see an antelope’s head moving behind the rocks. A quick thought ran through my head. “Oh no, I hope he doesn’t want me to shoot at a neck!” Then I remembered from my past experiences. He may be seeing more of the antelope than I am because of his height. I’m only 5’ tall. I told Jon I need to be higher. We needed to move up. I tried to quickly explain to him that because of his height he saw more of the antelope than I did. When all the antelope were behind rocks we moved a little higher up the mound. One by one the does presented themselves with full body view in an opening. The buck was next. I was ready, only he didn’t come up into full view as the does did. He stayed lower and all we saw of him was his head. He never presented a shot. The antelope were slowly making their way westward. Once they were out of sight. We were just about to make a move to another spot to try and get on them again when the antelope turned around and came right back up and were only about 75-80 yards away. First one doe passed through the opening. Two does followed behind her. They looked our way. We froze. I thought “We’re busted!” but I guess not. Next I knew would be the buck so I slowly eased my eye down to look through the scope. I saw horns! Jon whispered “Here he comes. There he is! When he stops shoot him.” He stopped. He was angled slightly toward us. So I took “a second” to decide on where I wanted to place the shot and I shot. Stumpy took off running and Jon and Jake were jumping up and down saying “Good shot! Nice shot! You got him!” The way Stumpy took off running I wasn’t as convinced as they were. I was confident I shot him but boy did he take off after the shot. I chambered another shell believing I was going to have to finish him off but no need. He ran about 50 yards an expired quickly. I have limited experience with antelope and honestly in the short time I saw Stumpy before the shot my only thought was on shot placement. It wasn’t until we walked over to where he expired that I noticed Stumpy’s horns. I kept repeating “Oh my word! Oh my word! Oh my Word! Look at the mass! Look at the mass! ” Jon and Jake checked him over and exchanged looks and comments which I interpreted to be pure amazement of what we had just downed. I guess they too were surprised by Stumpy’s mass. Jon, Jake and I exchanged more congratulatory hugs. I bent down to thank Stumpy for giving me the opportunity to take him. I also thanked God, St Francis, I'itoi, the antelope gods and said thank you to any other spiritual beings that had a hand in what had just taken place. Sam saw the whole show from our original spotting place. He said he knew when I took the shot because he saw all the antelope suddenly start running. It took a while for the sound of the shot to travel up to where he was. The shot sound just confirmed what he believed had just happened. Well whether it was luck, dedicated guides, supportive husband or my shooting (hard to miss at 75 yards)…it all came together, “exactly” as Jon planned. Great planning, Jon! Thank you to everyone involved in my hunt. What a wonderfully exciting time it was!
