Iíd happily trade an elk for 5-6 PROPERLY handled antelope!

Much better eating than deer and elk, I donít care if theyíve been on alfalfa or sage.

Where most guys screw up is treating em like deer.

Antelope have different microflora in them and they break down FAST. I can drag a fresh goat and deer into a spot, come back a couple days later, the goat will be a puddle. The deer will still be edible if youíre hungry enough.

Interesting I see a bunch of road kill and they last as long as the scavengers let them Iíve seen a bunch actually mummified. Eyes and tongue and bung gone of course but the skin dried up around the skeleton just like the mummies. Maybe the 9% relative humidity and heat from the pavement killed the microfauna before decay could kick in.


Go as far as you can see, and you will see farther
