How well do decoys work?

I'm still trying to decide whether i should go on a bow or rifle hunt for pronghorn! If i rifle hunt i don't plan on using a decoy, but the tags are limited. Bow it's harder to get close to one, but i'd use a decoy. I'd do either, but i would like to know just how well decoys work and what time of the year to use them.

Never use a pronghorn decoy during rifle season. You'll get yourself shot.

You should only use a decoy while bowhunting for safety reasons.

If you choose to use your bow, hunt water holes or fence crossings in August, and early September. For decoys, you will want to hit the rut which could happen early September to late September. It can be exciting!
