Glad to hear you at least got into the antelope. I would call your hunt progressive because you saw some game, tried some tactics and came away a little bit smarter. Many hunters don't realise that you should hunt every season even if you don't bag an animal, even if your odds aren't that great, you still learn something new everytime you're in the field hunting. I agree with what the others have said. Your best bet for getting into bow range is going to be to set up near a watering hole all day. Or at least set up on a game trail leading to the watering hole. You're on the right track. Good luck and don't give up.
