Seems like waving a white flag during pronghorn season on the open plains is like carrying a whitetail buck decoy thru the woods in the Midwest during rifle season. Kinda like putting a bullseye on yourself. Sounds like the hunters may be a little smarter and more cautious out there than here. You'd be shot if you did something like that here on state land in my home state.During the rut, all you need is a white handkerchief on the end of an old arrow shaft--- wave it in the air every once in a while and the bucks come running--- its a regular tool I use for bow or muzzle loader hunting
Kind of an old thread I know but wanted to say on my one antelope hunt I kind of had a similar experience. Some are skiddish and run as soon as you move towards you, some are curious. I shot at one at 330 yards off to my left and missed due to high winds. It ran about 100, 125 yards left to right, stopped broadside and turned to look at me. I didn't miss the second shot.I should add how stupid they can be too. I have had them wind me and come in for a look. Also, after you shoot one you can often look behind you and they will be standing there at 80 yards, staring at you. Still, camo doesn't really matter in my opinion.
