    Moo Cow Decoy

    Has anyone used the cow decoy for Antelope? I have been out hunting with my bow twice now and was wanting to try something different. The area i hunt is really flat so spot and stalk is very challenging. There are tons of cows were i hunt so i thought the cow might work.

    I personally have not, but one of my friends has and swears by it. I have been tempted to try one myself because where I antelope hunt there are a lot of cows also.

    Have never tried it on anelope, but we used to use cow decoys goose hunting and it worked really well!

    WTF? lol I'm sorry, how many antelope have you gotten? Oh, that's right.. none. lol
    and just so you know, moo cow decoys are supposed to work a little better than antelope decoys.. Not sure why.. Not to mention, buck antelope decoys are usually only going to work during the rut. moo cows will work anytime.

    Antelope hunters in Northern California sometimes use horse cutout decoys because of all of the wild horses in that area. If you have cows in your area, no reason it would not work.

    I like the idea of it being bigger and easier to hide behind. Being 6'2" that antelope decoy gets hard to hid behind.

    Anything is worth a shot, that's why they call it hunting! good luck, I've always thought about using a cow decoy also, let us know if it works.
