There is something just wrong

There is something just wrong with that hat after looking at it.  But if it works I'm not going to knock it. 

Good Luck on the hunt

Well I have been out four

Well I have been out four days this week using the decoy hat.  All I can say it's so much fun.  Beats sitting in the blind.  More action, and in my case a lot of shooting and missing.  I had antelope come to me, stick around after I shoot at them, and have been able to trick a buck into walking towards me in a open dirt field.  I keep shooting over their backs.  Not sure if it's me, or my rangefinder, or what.  Three stalks last night, and three shots with no hits.  Very frustrating on my part.  The hat is for real!  It's me that need to prove it-self.  Going out again this weekend.  Here are a few pic's and a video I found posted on thier web site.

At least it look and sounds

At least it look and sounds like you are having fun.  The goats are wondering why joe is acting funny and throwing sticks at them. 

As far as your range finder you need to take it out side and check it out on a known distance.  With all that you have put into this hunt it can't be you.

I find it funny how antelope

I find it funny how antelope allow hunters to use all these crazy techniques. I've heard that you can wave a white bandana at a rutting buck from a half mile away and he'll come running. Crazy

antelope hat

I was just in New Mexico around Tao's and was driving my blue honda civic on a two lane country road. All of a sudden I passed about 25 antelope on my left side just over the fence.I backed up and stopped and started taking pic's of them and watched them for about 5 minutes.As soon as I stuck my head out to get a better pic they started moving.Maybe my cammy hat scared em,got to get a antelope hat for next time,but never seen one yet.
