I went handgun antelope hunting this morning. I took a .44 mag wheel gun and only 6 shells. (My short-term memory could be better; I left my shells on the kitchen table next to my range finder). I walked up to within 75 yards of a herd of a dozen or so antelope. I shot at and missed a nice 15" class antelope. I think I shot low.

All but this small buck ran off. I followed the smaller buck on foot, then on my knees and got to within 50 yards or so of him. I shot him and he dropped dead in it's tracks. The 240 grain Hornaday HP/XTP hit him in the spine.

The horns are 13 1/2" long. It's only my second handgun antelope.

Re: Handgun Antelope

Nice goat, and even sweeter with a real handgun. I've killed a mule deer with my 44, a Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter. I won't go into detail, 'cause I don't want to start one of those "hold a little high at 90 yards" discussions.

Yes, I got moose with bow. I posted it in the Archery section.
