I know this a deer huntng forum but I thought you guys and girls might like to here about my girlfriend, Kelli, and I recent antelope hunt to SD.
We got back a couple days ago but everything has been very busy lately so I haven't had a chance to let you guys in on the news.
The very first hour of the hunt my girlfriend stuck a nice buck in the shoulder at 50 yards and after a half of day of watching and waiting for him to expire we tried to sneak closer for a finishing shot. No luck, he spotted us first.
After a long restless night we found him lying dead where we had watched him bed the night before. When Kelli wasnt looking I slipped an engagement ring on the horn of her buck. I told her to get over there and I'd take some pictures of her. She knelt down deside it and almost grabbed the ring when she picked up his head. I was quickly snapping pictures of her to capture her expresion. I think I got one of her when she first realized it. She was so shocked! She never had a clue. She said YES!
After a bunch more pictures we quartered him and she wanted to pack him out the 3/4 of a mile so I helped her get the pack on and off we went.
The next morning I was lucky enough to have a nice buck come in and I shot him at 23 yards. I couldnt believe it.
I am so lucky! A goat and a fiance'! I'm the luckiest man in the world.
This was her second big game animal with a bow and my first antelope with a bow. Unbelievable!
