First time I saw decoy system I busted up laughing but thought it would work on antelope. Judging by the video, it does, at least that time. Lets not forget the disclaimers though...not in general public access rifle season,etc. Oh, & remember not to work up to a water hole on hands & knees - that funny looking camo box over in the corner might just throw a sharply pointed stick at you.
I'm usually up for something different. If I decide to give archery antelope another try I just might try this out. Be more exciting than sitting in a blind by the water hole for days hoping & wishing.
Well, that's one way of decoying I've never heard of before... ha! Though not surprised it works, we were out once bowhunting them and got "busted" and they ran way off to the next rise. My buddy took off his T-shirt and started waving it around like a flag back and forth... dang if they didn't come walking back and almost to within our bow range... it was close, and funny. They can be quite curious, and I've read of guys tying a white rag to a barb-wire fence to fly in the breeze and have them come to that too.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
