I've been entertaining the idea of doing a podcast of some type for some time. I'm not sure what it could be or what I could do with it, but it's always been something that has intrigued me.

If anyone has any ideas for something like this, let me know.

would be interesting, Not sure what you would say or for how long but I am sure I would listen. Maybe switch it up a little, Have 20 - 30 min on how scouting has been so far, maybe get blake or somebody else on there with you and trade secrets and another 15 - 20 min talking about baseball

Haha. I could talk about baseball all day long! I have Chris Young and Justin Upton on one of my fantasy teams this year. I'm pleased with both of them. :)

Looks like I'm about to head out scouting towards the end of the week. I'll let you know what happens.

I would listen for sure. I am always up for learning more about antelope.

I scouted Perkins and the surrounding areas again this last weekend. Things are getting better. Got some more great fawn pictures too. There isn't a drop of water on the Perkins ranch right now, except for a little metal tank next to the meat processing place. I talked to Mark and he said they are getting ready to bring in the cows in the next couple weeks and once that happens, they will fill all the tanks on the ranch with water. That's when the antelope start showing up.

We'll see about this podcast thing. If I do it I want it to be AWESOME!

Anything big on Perkins that I need to look at?

Looks like I'm going to make my first trip this weekend - going to leave either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning and scout until Monday afternoon. I'M EXCITED!

I will be out this weekend as well if you want to get together. Shoot me an email and let me know.

As far as the moisture goes, you should start another topic on that. Compare the years that the biggest antelope were killed to the amount of rainfall that year.

Personally, I don't think the rain and moisture help antelope horn growth all that much.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add....

There aren't any big bucks on Perkins. They all moved to Granite Dells where they will be safe!! haha

I actually have done a little research on horn growth and rainfall. I did it all a few years ago - if I can find the results I'll post them.

The just of my results was that the year(s) prior to the buck being taken were the most important for horn growth, not the year of although two or more good years of rain seemed to be even better. Just look at the bucks taken in the mid 1980's.

In 1982 and 1983 we had great rain and then in 1984 and 1985 we had Susan Whitaker's World Record and O'Haco's World Record.

I'm heading up north on Thursday afternoon. Probably run through 19A Thursday evening and then up to Unit 10 and then who knows - I usually wander around a lot on my first trip and hit several units.
