Well, as a few of you will have seen in another thread, thanks for the kindness of a forum member on here an Englishman was able to cross the pond for his first ever hunt in North America. I drove up from Denver to meet up with the motley crew who I would be staying and hunting with for the week. We all hit it off from the start and there was none stop jokes and laughing. I even tried teaching them a little culture, such as the correct way to eat with a fork but it was lost on this lot! They did there best to ‘Americanise’ me too. We went out for a little drive about on the first afternoon just to get a feel for the land. We had around 100,000 acres to hunt on. We saw lots of Antelope and Mule deer. The terrain is like nothing we have in England. I managed to fill my antelope tag early on with a really nice buck. We looked quite a few over which all looked big to me but my host kept me on the straight and narrow. I missed the first buck I shot at - we will blame that on the jet lag... then after a few minutes of us standing there watching them disappear over the horizon and trying to work out what happened. This guy and 2 other bucks walked out in front of us. Antelope are a really unique animal, like nothing we have in the UK. I was surprised that they have a blue tongue but I was not surprised that they smell like any other goat!
