Wyoming 2019 Hunting Trip

Post by Capt_Jerry » Wed Oct 23, 2019 2:13 pm

Currently on a combination elk and antelope hunt in the Buffalo Wyoming area. I have been concentrating on the elk but have had no success as of yet, I decided yesterday to take a break from the mountains and look for some antelope as I had a doe/fawn tag and needed some meat for the freezer back home in Florida.

I managed to find a very hospitable rancher who allowed me to hunt on his property. Managed to find a small group who immediately spotted me. I watched them for a bit and they were starting to get nervous and were facing me head-on with the exception of one who gave me broadside shot at 152 yards. I decided to take the shot before the group lite the afterburners and disappeared. The Barnes 95 grain TTSX once again did its job. It passed through and dropped the doe on the spot. I have yet to recover one from antelope, deer and the hogs that have met their demise from the TTSX.

Tool Description
> 12.5” AR-P barrel 6.8 SPC
> Anderson upper and lower
> Rock River two stage trigger
> Bushnell Elite Firefly 3x9x40 scope
> Saker 7.62 suppressor
> 95 grain Barnes TTSX over 29.5 grains of Accurate LT-32

Not much down here in town but about 5" up on the mountain this morning. Followed some tracks but the elk went into some tough terrain. Never caught up with them although the temperature was :o 12 degrees :o and motivated me to keep on moving.

Pulled into Florida last night. Trip was fun, unfortunately no elk.

Supper will be at 6PM tonight. Grilled marinated antelope steaks, yellow rice and a salad. Hopefully you can make it.
