After hunting the archery antelope season the BTO team moved straight into the rifle antelope hunts.
Having spent alot of time in unit 5A, I was contacted by Brad Remfrey and asked if I could help out a great organization called the Outdoor Experience for All. This great organization has been created by Eddie Corona and assists kids with life threatening illnesses and provides outdoor experiences for them. I jumped at the opportunity and a first rate camp was set up by Eddie and his crew and the hunt was on.
Opening day found us glassing and seeing several lesser bucks before deciding to make a play on a great mature buck. With a short stalk and a 20 minute waiting game, Matt made an incredible 480
yard one shot kill on his first AZ antelope. Matt showed incredible composure and his no fear attitude was a perfect combination for success.
It was a pleasure and a honor to get to know and hunt with the Gonzalez family and friends. They are a great group of people and look forward to the new friendships made and sharing future hunts.
If you are interested in supporting a great organization check out OE4A.com website for information and give Eddie a call.
