Some people like to use decoys during archery season in order to get in close for a shot.

They are curious creators and it is possible to flag one in, although I think this might be considered baiting and could get you in hot water if used as a part of a hunt.

Lope have great eye sight and speed, if your hunting with a rifle its probably a good idea to get profficient out to 300 yards. That way if you happen upon a herd that you can't get in close on because of wind direction, lack of cover, etc you can pull up with the bipod and bust one.
