The season opens oct.3 in Texas. The second image is a very large antelope. The first is a good one but I posted it becauseI thought it was a pretty photo. Dr.C

They're Pronhorn Antelope. Only live in western North America. They are the fastest land mammal on earth. A cheetah is quicker over a short distance but a Pronghorn will leave him in the dust if the race has any length at all. They can hit 60mph in a sprint and can maintain 30mph almost indefinitely, plus they have some of the best eyes in the animal kingdom. They're fun to hunt. Technically they're an antelope in name only as they're in reallity a goat. Good eating too. At least all the one's I've been involved with. They came out of winter wheat fields in western Nebraska. I thought they were better eating than deer. Similar to lean beef. I've heard people from farther west claim that they can be pretty gamey though.

My .25-06 mysteriously hums like excalibur whenever I have a picture like these on my computer.

Less of a cannon....more like a laser :)

Thanks for looking, I really enjoy scouting and capturing wildlife w/ my camera. I have a special affinity for the pronghorn antelope. Dr.C
