Does anyone have the be the decoy antelope hat and shirt they want to sell? Large or extra-large shirt would be what I prefer and I wear 7 1/8" hat but I imagine it is adjustable. Thanks John 623-680-4458
Make one. Craft foam from Hobby Lobby, a ball cap, some fabric paint, a hot glue gun to put it together. That's how my elk and deer hats are made and I've seen some good pronghorn hats. The shirt is a no brainer to tie-dye.
I have one but not for sale. Like Jaquomo said you could make one. I have killed a bunch of bucks using mine. I have decoyed some into point blank and killed many others stalking them and when I pop up to range and shoot with the hat they take a few extra seconds to give you a shot.
Funny, i was just going through my hunting closet and looked at mine and thought, "what the hell am i gonna do with this thing?". I'll send you a text.
Nearest Hobby Lobby to me is 160 miles...
I found one. thanks

I would like to see some pics as well...
This one charged over the hill when he saw the top of the horns as I was trying to range his does thinking he was right under me. I about crapped myself when he was as less than five yards. I was trying to get my release on and he bolted out to 30 and stopped broadside.

You look like you could be brothers!
Maybe grow some sideburns to simulate the cheek patches next time, beav ;-)
It would definitely be exciting to get one to respond to the decoy, for sure!
That looks like something Red Green would make for the Possum Lodge meetings.
That hot goofy hat has been the demise to some nice bucks. It fit best if you wear a hat backwards and put the goat head on over it. Hot as hell but works!
If it works that’s all that matters
Now that’s some cool ingenuity!

After reading this thread, my wife tried her hand and building a Pronghorn decoy hat. Now, I have to head out west and see if it helps me in my antelope quest. Camo baseball cap, some craft foam, and a couple of pipe cleaners for some rigidity in the horns.
Good luck RD! Keep us posted on how it goes.
