Finally hit the lotto

After four years of applying I finally drew a resident Antelope tag. Its in a decent area that has plenty of BLM public land, and some decent bucks. I hope to make a couple of scouting trips prior to the season; however life may get in the way (babies). A leftover tag may also be in the works.

I also hope to try out a new caliber I’ve had my eye on for a couple of years. If I can convince myself and my wife that I absolutely can not live without a 6.5 Creedmoor, that will be my caliber of choice come antelope season. If not, the .243 will have to get the job done.

Until then, here’s a couple of pics from a mountain lake I stumbled upon last week. I actually caught a brook trout out of it…on a fly rod no less.
