I don't know if this has been covered in the past, but I was wondering if anyone has ever used a decoy to hunt antelope. I have heard that antelope are very curious and will come to a decoy. Has anyone on this site ever used one successfully?
A number of years ago, my buddy drew an antelope tag in Utah. We spent some time building a decoy out of plywood and went out to give it a try. We had a lot of fun finding antelope and crawling behind that chunk of plywood to get closer, but we sure didn't get close enough to flip a sharp stick at him.
Here's what we enjoyed.... had a ball making a decoy look as much like an antelope as we could. I carefully cut it out and painted it to look real. We had a ball "thinking" that we could crawl close to a big buck. Our fantasies were worth the work.
But it didn't help us get an antelope. Sitting in a blind did.
