Nice job!

You would think a man that just made a nice shot on a fine Antelope would be able to smile!

I love to hunt them. Don't care much about eating them , except for jerky and
sausage.
They are a challenge.

Excellent! Congratulations.

Dang, we love eating antelope. It can be better than the finest elk.

Never ate a bad elk either. Nor a bad antelope.

Congrats! I don't have any big game down yet this fall.

Nicely done. Maybe someday I'll get a crack at pronghorn.

My wife is jealous! She loved the one speed goat I shot. I guess Oregon sage is
just a little sweeter than Montana sage..

Never ate a Montana antelope. Antelope around here would have to go a long
way to find enough sage brush to eat. These live on grass, alfalfa , wheat etc.

I'm thinking this antelope flavor thing is pretty much an individual choice.

My wife and I think antelope is delicious! It's literally at the top of our list of red meat.

Apparently others don't share that opinion.

Never had antelope, but deer sure vary a lot depending on where they live and what they're eating. Also seems like the time of the year.

Antelope have a flavor all their own, some folks like it others don't.

Have heard this stuff about "how it's taken care of" for bit more than 60 years
now. Have seen folks skin it almost immediately, have even seen some folks
skin it, cut the meat off the carcass wash it and put it on ice without opening
the body cavity. That doesn't get the antelope flavor out of the meat.

You will never get a tough piece of antelope.
It is the very finest game meat for jerky and salami, but frying, roasting brazing
etc.. not so much. I always think back to one old guys never fail antelope roast
recipe. Take an antelope roast put it in a roaster oven pack the space in the
roaster with dry cow chips. soak with water, and cook, when the meat is flaking
throw it out and eat the soup...
