Welcome plan_b.

I havent done much driving through SD lately. Except a month ago, my wife and I went to WY turkey hunting and we drove through the southern half of the state. We did see good numbers along the interstate.I have heard that the kill wasnt as bad as some had predicted. Some have said that the goats just migrated further south to where it wasnt as bad.

Last year we bowhunted the southern part and saw good numbers but not as many as the year before.

I know some of the other forums I visit discuss antelope hunting more than maybe this one.

Good luck.

glad to here that. it was pretty bad in 09 compared to 08 and 07. took the gf with me on her first bow hunt. we had fun. saw some goats, actually missed a nice 14" at 40! his chicks blew me in before the arrow got to him.dang broads!!!!! ow well. i mean from rapid city all the way to n.d. it appeared to be about 1/4 of what was there the year before. now game and fish have added 3 lope tags the past year or so and they dont think the count is down. we'll see this year!!
