DISCLAIMER: This isn't about sunfish. Sue me! banana

Was up in CO chasing pronghorn. I only had a single day to hunt since work has been crazy. Got up at 4:00 am and drove just above the OK line to hunt the Comanche National Grasslands. At daybreak I was glassing. The antelope had been hunted pretty hard and were really skittish. I wasn't going to be picky and any legal buck would work. I Had 3 stalks that didn't work and it wasn't until an hr before dark that I got it all come together.

Finally managed to belly crawl using a patch of yucca to get behind. One round from my 308 at about 200 yards did the trick. Used a handloaded 130 gr Barnes TTSX over Varget powder. Perfect heart shot. He ran about 80 yards and piled up. Not the biggest speedgoat but one horn taped 14 1/2 inches and the other just a whisker less than 14 and he had good mass. For a one day hunt, I was happy with him. He is my 18th pronghorn.

I was hoping to tie some trout fishing in with it but I got something in my lungs causing massive congestion and coughing so I decided to play it smart and come back to town. I am off work until Thurs so I may head to Meredith with the tube if my lungs clear up

Cheers Y'All.

Nice pronghorn cheers.


Hope you get to feeling better. Make you some lemon honey tea. Cut 2 big Lemons and squeeze all the juice into a small pot NO WATER then you're going to squeeze as much honey as you want in with the lemon juice. Bring to a boil then shut it off. Pour into a cup and sip! Caution it's freaken hot so blow on it. A little home remedy for cough and congestion. It works for us.

Nice kill! I was in that area for a while but never got to hunt. Maybe next time.


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!
