Bowhunting antelope in a traditional western state is a trip worth experiencing. When I decided to pull the trigger and apply for Wyoming, I thought it would be my one and only trip. But, there is something about hunting the west that stays with you...and a desire to experience it again.
The Heads Up Tom Turkey Decoy looked to be my best option, but I was still a bit skeptical. That was until I had my first long beard come running to five yards from my HUD before I could even get my bow drawn. My heart was pounding out of my chest! I totally bombed on a five-yard shot!
Morning roost hunts are as much about hearing the gobbling on the roost as anything. Unfortunately, the 30-40 mph winds pretty much muffled that. All we could hope for is to see them fly down and maybe see them out in the short pasture grass.
