In 2011 I was drawn for the archery hunt in the same unit. After 12 days of scouting and countless practice shots at long range I had an area picked out to hunt. Opening morning I was able to stalk up to within 45 yards of two good bucks and 21 does and just couldn't close the deal. At around 11 A.M. I was on my third stalk on the same group of antelope and this time the buck walked out at 88 yards. I drew back, settled in and released. The buck ran fifty yards and piled up. In my opinion it is one of the hardest animals to spot and stalk with a bow.
