    Easiest = ground blind over water

    Hard hunt with a bow arrow to spot and stalk Probably a little early for decoying

    Good Luck and bring back some pics and a story for us

    I got one years ago spot and stalk. I got lucky and walked into bow range with a herd of cattle :)

    I have done both, decoying is my favorite but I think you might be to early.

    They closed the Antelope season this year here in Saskatchewan...HARD winter and tons of winterkill. They estimate 80%+ in a lot of areas. Good luck on your hunt!! I was able to get one last year....decoying worked the 3rd weekend of Sept in the middle of the rut...other than that...rifle. lol

    I'd have to say the easiest method would blind hunting over water. A couple of years ago I went to WY with 9 other guys. We all tagged nice Antelope by 4:00pm on the first day over water holes.

    Spot and stalk might be more of a challenge and also more fun in my opinion. But if you just want to kill one blind over water will work.
