Thanks for the info and the story, JW.  Bloody messes aside, it's always rather satisfying when those self-assessed geniuses get what's coming to them. 

OK, I'm definitely putting in for an antelope permit next year.  It's an almost guaranteed draw (I don't know why they don't just sell them OTC), and it's about as close to a 100% success rate as they come.  (I read somewhere that 90% of the world's population of pronghorns live within 300 miles of Casper, Wyoming, and yes, I am within that circle.  Some days it looks like the Serengeti out there)  Not premium eating, though good enough when treated well in the field.  But between the rawhide, a pretty skull on the wall, a two-week extension of bow hunting season, some extra jerky and sausage in the freezer, and the chance to possibly get Mrs. Badger her first kill...Yep, I think it's time.

We are in that circle, but the challenge is navigating the draw process!  Got to be smarter than the draw!  And hope you hit the right area!

Nope, northern Colorado, Loveland to be exact.  Just a hop, skip, and jump and an hour from Cheyenne! (lol)

Oh, OK.  I'm guessing less public land on the front range to chase goats, but they are down there.

Hey, Are you by chance going to the shoot in Cheyenne January 5?  If so, look for the tall guy with the fedora and the self-bow, and introduce yourself.   ;D

Didn't know there was a shoot!  What is the location?  I may be able to get up there!  At least to watch!

Oops, it isn't in Cheyenne; it's in Thermop.  That's a bit more of a drive for you, I guess.

Don't think that is quite doable, and still get home for dinner!  May have to just shoot down here somewhere!  Got an Indoor range close by, just have to find out if it is open to non members!  Might be a bit chilly outdoors!

You are up around Riverton, more or less?

You can always go to the hot springs for a soak after the shoot.
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

Well, curses and begorra!  You didn't mention a hot springs for the turkey hunt!  On the other hand, that might be why the Lakota didn't winter in the Black Hills!  Or was it the other way around! (lol) (lol).
