2020 DIY Antelope

By Bree Wheet

October 11, 2020

My daughter had been planning an antelope hunt in Wyoming since the first of the year. Applied for youth tags and in June she found out she was drawn.

She practiced all summer until she could shoot water bottles at 300 yds consistently with the 140gr ELD bullets in 6.5 Creedmoor. The ELD-X and ELD-M both shot ragged holes.

She took an antelope doe at 247yds and a buck at 73yds both dropped with 1 shot. She couldn’t be happier and this dad couldn’t be prouder.
