I flew in from Saint Petersburg, FL to meet up with my good friends and hunting partners Ken and Vern Lunde. We drove from the Rapid City, SD airport straight to Moorcroft, WY.

The morning of the hunt (10/1) was below freezing temperatures, 30 mph wind and snow flurries. This Florida boy was a tad chilly.

The results (pics by Ken Lunde):

I took this pronghorn antelope at 7:30 AM. It was a 140 yard shot. I was using a Cooper M52 Excalibur chambered in .25-06. The bullet was a Sierra 100 gr Pro-Hunter Spitzer.

Ken took his at 8:05 AM. It was a 210 yard shot. It dropped like a stone. Ken was using his Cooper M22 chambered in 6.5 x 55 Swede. The bullet was a Sierra 120gr Spitzer Boat Tail.

The pronghorn were gutted using Ken's Busse Satin + Snakeskin SJTAC.

We celebrated yesterday with pronghorn chilli for lunch, elk tenderloins for dinner (from Vern's freezer). The toasting was done with Booker's bourbon.

Coopers...close friends...a successful hunt...great food..high end bourbon...life is good.

congrats!

i think the area south and a little east of moorcroft is as beautiful as hunting country gets, until you get out to the western third of wy... hope you had a chance to stop by tnt guns in rozet - great guys there and they know a thing or two about hunting.

Great pics and report. Make me really jealous; I've always wanted to hunt antelope but haven't got the right connections yet.
