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.
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
