    Oklahoma Controlled Hunts

    Anybody draw a rifle tag for an Oklahoma antelope and shoot a speed goat? If so, I'd love to see a picture!

    I was lucky enough to draw the tag a couple of years ago and had a great hunt.

    Unfortunately for me, I've been putting in since the inception of this hunt like elk since the 70's and haven't drawn either. I always thought that if I did draw the speed goat hunt, I'd hunt the Cimarron National Grasslands as it's public hunting, or put an ad in the Guymon Newspaper that I'd trade a rick of split and seasoned oak firewood for a hunt.
    Have to draw first though.
    Congrats on the draw and the fine looking antelope. Great write up as well!

    It will surprise you what value some people put on a rick of seasoned/split/hardwood. I would take a 16 foot dump trailer loaded to the top of the 4 foot side boards with oak, walnut and hedge to a couple of families around Colby and Grinnell Kansas where we pheasant hunted. One of them told me if I wanted to make some good money bring another load the next time we were going to bird hunt and leave the trailer at the Co-Op in Grinnell. I wasn’t into cutting that much wood so I went to a guy in Ralston that had a bunch of seasoned wood for $55/rick. He loaded 12 rick, I paid him $700, took it to the Co-Op early one morning and it was all gone by that afternoon and they gave me $1500. May have been the easiest $800 I ever made but it didn’t stay in my pocket long. The local Pheasants Forever Chapter had their banquet that night. Damn raffle tickets!

    My buddy worked in Midland Tx for several years. Every time he came home he would pull a 20’ gooseneck trailer, load it up with firewood and pay for his trip by selling it when he got home.
