Got One! Montana Antelope Falls for Decoy Hat

Well I finally conected with one.  The hat worked great!  I missed the big one at 59 yards.  I stalked in on this group of bucks and when they spotted me they started coming right to me.  I can't believe I missed (actually I can because I had been missing all week).  Not a big deal, I found this lonely buck ten minutes later.  I was able to get in front of him.  With the buck just over a small rise, I slowely started to move towards him.  When I got to the top of the rise, the buck was staring right at me.  He was at 50 yards.  I went to range him again, and he started walking right to me.  I just stayed still.  The buck stopped at 30 yards and put his head down to rub his horns.  When he did that I drew and let the arrow go.  Whack!  My Montana buck tag is punched.  Now onto some doe patrol!

FANTASTIC!! Great job

FANTASTIC!! Great job stringmusic. First time i saw the "camoflage" I thought they'd work on goats. Glad you had the tag, the curiosity and the willingness to put up with goofy stares & bad jokes to try it out!

And just think - you're now set up for the next haloween party. Make up a batch of antelope meatballs in BBQ sauce becuz now you can!!

Nice stringmusic. I hope you

Nice stringmusic. I hope you didn't wear the hat into town though. Good idea taking the picture wearing your outfit.
