    Will be heading for one of the Washoe County units later this month. My longtime friend drew a pronghorn tag and I'm going to accompany him. He's taken a number of 80-ish size bucks from several different states but never one that officially scores 82 or more. We will be giving it our best shot. I plan to take a lot of pictures including live shots with my digiscope equipment. Looking forward to sharing on this forum.

    Good luck to everyone who already has been lucky enough to draw the good tag!

    Add: my old man missed a cow elk today. We will be back at em in the morning. After he cleared his head from his miss we got on another group of 3. Noticed 2 other guys had seen them as well and were making a plan to close the distance. We backed off so not to catch any crossfire. We watched from a distance as they inched in. They ended up about 30 yds from the elk. The released a borage of gunfire. Probably 8 shots between the two of them. They ended up hitting one in the rear leg and she was crippled up pretty good. I kept a close eye on her and sure enough they lost her after she bedded up. We helped guide them in for the kill and they sealed the deal. Was sad to see it unfold but I'm glad we were there! At the end of the day she was tagged and they have a full freezer. I don't think they expected the elk to end up in their lap during their stalk. They were tailing the cows when all of a sudden something in front of the cows spooked them. They turned back and ran straight toward the hunters. It happened quick, and I understand there position.

    Well I have returned from chasing lopes. Found probably the biggest antelope buck I have ever seen on the hoof. But I found him this morning and had to leave by 2. So I couldn't sit water or chase him by the time I found him. But I am hopeful I can get a deer early on in my deer hunt so I can go back and chase this buck.

    Got another buck that was around 70-73 that I was chasing for Friday and Saturday. I watched him for 3 hours Friday hoping he would go into a stalkable spot and he disappeared that day.

    Saturday I found him and he was in a stalkable spot. But horses and coyotes pushed them out of the draw before I could get in range. After they went out of sight I ran down the hill after them but ran out of cover and could only get 150 yards from them. Then they spooked.

    And Sunday, I finally found the giant buck that I was told about. I watched him from over a half mile and let him take his does over the ridge. I got almost to that ridge until 2 bucks came over 300 yards away and saw me. I thought they were heading to water so I walked back and sat for awhile. They never showed. So I am pretty sure I know the big bucks core area, know his watering hole so now I just have to get back out there. Anyone want to go chase goats ?
