Using an Antelope decoy... anyone?

I'm very interested in trying this. I've heard that it can be very productive and a lot of fun. Anybody ever tried it? I'd like to hear all about it. What worked, what didn't? Did you have a partner? Use a call? Early season, late season? Etc., etc., etc.?

They are fun and do work. With my son using the decoy, and me behind him with my bow, we have drawn bucks in for sure. Some get excited about it and start running in! They run away just as fast though when they figure out they have been had, ha ha. Far too...... Laugh
Believe it or not my friend drew one in by just taking his shirt off and moving it back and forth when he got caught in the open once. They are curious animals I guess. These have been August hunts in Az. with a bow.
We got some interest last year in rifle season, but not near as much. I've never tried a call before, but have another bow tag this year and think I'll get one to try.... I also WILL be bringing the decoy! Great fun, but I've learned to be ready the hard way since things seemed to happen so fast. Murphy's Law........
I say go for it and have someone to work it for you too if you can. Thumbs up
Good luck.

I forgot that I wanted to add that mine is light, made of molded plastic, and folds up. It is made from three pieces with hinges that fold, comes with a stake if you want to just "plant it" so to speak; and also came with a bag to put it in for transport.
I'm sorry, but I have forgotten the brand name of it.
Good luck.
