Sept 09 Danny and Scott from Monster Muleys
The hunt was everything you guys said it would be. Lots of bulls bugling but we were having a hard time getting bulls to respond to cow calls. After trying decoys and cow calls for two days we decided to put some major pressure on the next bull so when we got a bugle we raked trees bugled and raised some hell. It worked! A bull came charging in and I shot him at 16 yrds. He made it 40 yrds and dropped. He scored 344. We hunted hard for two more days, lots of action but no response. Monday morning we hit it perfect. We had 7 bulls going before daybreak but the wind was wrong. So we made a big circle and got right on a good bull but again with cow calls and decoy the bull went away from us. We were trying to figure it out when we heard a bull a couple hundred yrds away. So we took off bugling and putting pressure on him. Danny saw the bull in a water hole 60 yrds over a hill so we stopped and raked a tree. Right away the bull came in to investigate. He came straight at us 30 yrds, stopped and stared us down, then turned for a great shot. Danny waited for the right shot and let go. Perfect hit. The bull walked 125 yrds and piled up. Danny's bull scored 415. I want to thank you all for your info. I want to especially thank AZBACKWOODS (on Monster Muleys) aka Bobby Brown from BackWoodsGuides.com for all his time scouting, knowledge of this area and our phone calls.
Thanks for your help, this is a wonderful place. Scott
Mark Njaa 2011 antelope hunt
I was sitting in my truck on the opening morning of my antelope hunt waiting for the rain to stop. A full rainbow appeared overhead where I could see both ends hitting the ground to the left and right of me. It was a picture perfect moment. I got out of the truck with my camera and started to take some photos, when out of the rainbow a galloping antelope appeared. It was running towards a nearby saddle that leads to another prairie. I had not
even loaded my rifle yet due to the rain. I got my rifle out of the case and loaded it up. It was too far a shot so I jumped back into the truck to drive half the distance to where I thought it would cross the dirt road. I stopped, got out, and waited. It stopped broadside and looked at me. It was a 250 yard shot with the rising sun in the background. I fired. It
took off running over the saddle and disappeared. I drove up to where it ran across the dirt road and found its tracks. I looked out into the prairie expecting to see it running away. I saw nothing. I followed over the saddle and found him about 40 yards away. It was a perfect mid-chest cavity shot.
If you look at the rainbow picture, you can see a little white speck appearing from the red band of colors in the darker shaded grass. That's my rainbow antelope coming to greet me. Two other hunters showed up as I was dressing and skinning the animal. They both said that this was the buck that they were hunting. One hunter said he had spent two full weeks scouting this animal and was displeased that I took him. I told him that it was not meant to be, and recommended he may need to atone for his past deeds, because this buck was sent by God to me.
I wanted to give my buddy, Bobby Brown from backwoodsguides.com, a big thank
you. He spent a weekend with me which included numerous phone calls, and
introduced me to Mr. Rainbow Antelope before the hunt began.
