"Just another buck antelope"

I hunted opening morning of my Wyoming rifle antelope hunt with my four-year-old son. I took a shot at this nice buck that I have been watching all summer, but I missed.

On the second day of the season, my six-year-old daughter and I went hunting together after work and I connected on this great buck from about 50 yards. We originally saw this buck about a minute after we left the car to go hiking and he went up and over the hill, so we circled around and he came right to us. Bang!

This unit was my second choice and is almost 90% private land, so I am thrilled that we found such a good buck and were able to bring him home.

My daughter must be lucky because she has been with me when I shot both antelope that I have ever harvested. Plus, we had a lot of fun making memories together.

I am going to attempt to Euro mount him like I did my last buck.

And yes, I did bring another awesome animal home in the trunk of my Toyota Camry.

Nice going Dillon!

My first hunting rig was a '61 VW Beetle. You'd be surprised where that car would go with a running start. At 33 cents a gallon for gas, I couldn't afford to drive anything else.

Thanks everyone.

I was thinking if I quarter out an elk and get those in the trunk, then I could use my ratchet straps to attach the bull elk head to the roof.

Time will tell if that plan will work.

If not, I do own a Honda Pilot that my wife hits deer with taking kids to school.

My buddy strapped an elk head to his BMW I'm sure he got some odd looks.
