    What do you mean, flagging? Wearing white or waving a white cloth or what?

    First time I saw it done was in 1980 in Wyoming. The Rancher where we were hunting used a long pole (about 5 or 6 ft long) and attached a red bandana on the end and started waving it at some antelope that were about 6 or 700 yards away. My son had a doe tag and a couple of them came trotting up to see what was going on and my son shot his doe. They are very curious.

    I've "Google'd" the topic and have gotten forum after forum of people who say one way and the other. I cant find it in any regs:

    I like ColoradoCowboy's answer. I have never heard of it being illegal. That said, I have only seen the technique work marginal over the years, it's not like every antelope will come a running at the wave of your flag. You have to get the right goat at the right time to get curious.
