If you want my opinion that hat is worth its weight in gold. Those antelope are so curious they circle right in. Yes you look like a major tool while wearing it, but it for sure gives you an edge. I’ll be taking it on every antelope hunt form now onDude that is an awesome buck! Spot and stalk in flat open country with a bow! Wow! That is impressive, and not just any buck - a STUD buck! Nice job!
I’ve got to ask you, do you think the decoy hat was the ticket? I’ve looked at them for archery elk a few years back. My very 1st thought when I saw one was “that-is-brilliant”. my second thought was “I’m going to look like a tool wearing that hat and my friends are going to haze me relentlessly”. I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it.
But If you tell me it was what made the difference for you on this hunt, then I’m ordering one today!
You can’t cheat the mountain
Nope, Right in the noggin. He spun on me when I shot. I put another in him for insurance when I walked up as he was kicking stillHeck of a buck!!! Did you shoot it in the back of the head? I see that and what looks like a frontal shot and one bloody arrow, or is that from him fighting with another buck?
