    Camo for wyoming antelope hunt?

    Will probably be getting drawn for wyoming antelope this year. Hunting early October it looks like. Was thinking of wearing mossy oak brush. Would that be appropriate? Recommendations

    I've hunted antelope a dozen times. The camo pattern doesn't matter. I think camo patterns are overrated for the most part. The best plan is to spot your antelope from a distance (1/2 mile+), then plan your stalk so they never see you.

    I use Open Country, but Umpqua has it right.

    After archery hunting them for a week last year, wear whatever is comfortable. If they see you inside 400-600 yards they are gonezo, use the terrain to stay out of line of sight until in range.

    Just an example of the best pronghorn outfitters anywhere (Tony Grimmett), is always in his antelope pictures in his signature white tee shirt. Their outfit has been responsible for more 90"+ antelope than anyone on the planet. As Doe Nob said, wear what is comfortable.
