    3D leafy camo

    I'm headed to Wyoming to try my luck at archery hunting for antelope. I was hoping someone with more Experiance than I could tell me if Leafy wear camo is good for stalking antelope ? read in Mike E's book that they can see movement really well so if the wind is blowing and the leafy wear is moving is that something that they will be afraid of ? this is my first attempt at these speedsters and I dont know much about the vegitation in Wy. is there anything in the pronghorns world that move like leaves in the wind ?
    thanks

    I would say that you might stick out more than you would blend in. Vegetation varies of course, but typically sage brush isn't real "leafy".

    I don't think it will necessarily scare them but you'll be pegged... 95% of the time your gonna be seen... There is several western theme camo patterns out there...Anything that breaks up your pattern will work... Try using the topography and get in front of where they are traveling is the best bet for spot and stalk or possibly decoying... The leaves blowing is just going to attract attention to you, just my opinion, hard to beat their eyes... Also they don't see as well in low light situations... Good luck to you!!!

    I wouldn't use leafy camo because you'd definately stick out. I'd recommend using Seclusion 3D Open Country, Realtree Max-1, or Mossy Oak Brush camo. Seclusion 3D Open Country and Realtree Max-1 are extremely effective when attempting to blend in with sagebrush and Mossy Oak Brush blends in very well with prarie and grasslands.
