    Learn something new everyday on the forum.....I didn’t know CA even had them. It’s the one big game animal I’d like to hunt for myself. Good luck.

    I may prefer a grain fed antelope versus an elk. Now an antelope that feeds on sage may be a different story but the last two I've shot in Nebraska have had wheat, corn, and proso millet in the gut after examination.

    My boy and I have taken two. I wasn't along for his, but when we got mine we had three big bags of ice at the ready. It wasn't super hot, upper 70's, but sunny and I shot mine early afternoon. We got the animal gutted quickly and ice inside and outside of the animal and out of the sun. When we got to where we could skin and cut up the animal a few hours later and the meat was cold. Table far, the best wild game meat I've ever eaten. We hunt the desert, the only food is sage brush and bitter brush, no cropland around.

    Excellent table fare.
    Shot probably 20 in my lifetime.
    Hunted NM in August.
    105 degrees. Why open the season then??
