My first ever antelope! Taken in SE Idaho. Pretty tasty to boot. It was a great hunt after missing one giant buck and blowing 3 more stalks after the miss. ended up shooting him at about 60 yards.

Thanks, he measures 14" on both sides about an inch above the average for the state. Can't wait to do it again.

Cograts, nice goat. Over the years I've had the chance to take a few good Idaho antelope myself. Though we dont have the population of anteope that our neighbors do, it's still an awesome hunt if one can get a tag. My wife took her first goat in 08 and now she's addicted to antelope hunting too. When I get a chance I will post pics.

Nice. I finally got tired of putting in for a rifle tag after about 15 years with no success. My new bow should be here in a week or two and then the game will change. The nice buck that watches me mow my lawn every fall will be my first attempt.

Nice buck. What part of Idaho is best for goats? Are there antelope up in the panhandle?

Thanks everyone.
There are not any Antelope in N. Idaho. All Antelope are in Southern Idaho stretching up towards the Salmon area.

great goat, I to have taken a couple here in southern Idaho. I love to chase those critters, I went to our neighbors to the east and after that experience it is hard to hunt antelope here. Those people over there are spoiled!
