Saturday was cold and wet and Gary Sefton hunted a water hole named the
Swimming Hole. The only antelope he saw were coming to a water hole 600
yards away. Gary is a field tester for the Run-N-Gun ground blind from
Summit and broke the new blind down and moved it to the waterhole with
the activity. Sunday four groups of antelope watered there but none
Monday the wind was blowing briskly and two different doe groups came
in. After that Gary decided that he would take a doe if he got the
A lone doe walked in carefully. When the doe got to the water it
stopped and started drinking 30 yards away. Gary took advantage of its
head being down and took his shot. The hit was a good double lung shot
and the antelope bolted and ran over the berm and out of sight.
Gary got out of the blind right away and walked to the top of the berm
and there it was, only 30 yards away. It had gone 40 yards from where
the shot was. It was 2:00.
Gary was in one of the rare places where he could get a cell signal and
he called Steve. But Steve couldn’t hear because of the bad reception
but he recognized the number and figured Gary had an antelope down and
drove to his water hole to pick Gary up. When he arrived in camp we
took a few pictures and by 4:00 we had the doe in the freezer.
