Decoys are unfair

11 posts in this topic

Stick with me on this.

You come home from a hard day of work. You notice 2-3 Hooters girls in the front yard. They are holding hotwings and ice cold beer fresh out of the keg. Wouldn't you walk over and check it out? I may get more cautious if the guy missed me, but I'd probably come back the next day.

I know it's off the wall, but I thought of this while I was moving my decoys in the garage yesterday.

Ha i've thought about that as well. Think about how easy it is to decoy people. I try to explain this so many time to non-fishing friends who try to convince me the fish is going to bite again as I'm releasing it...

If i give you a burger and there's a huge hook in it, are you going to want a burger anytime soon? Heck no!

Have you ever ran across a quarter superglued to the ground? Count me dead a couple times.

Or a dollar bill tied to fishing line. Much to my wife's chagrin I would get shot at least once a week. I'd just have to keep checking it out. Maybe, just maybe those aren't decoy hot wings this time.

No way you're getting my decoys. They are way too effective!

I'd be guilty for sure. I'd probably linger around for a follow-up shot.

Well all I know is that decoys have cost me and my crew more birds than they've pulled in. I rarely use them anymore.

But based on your description that would be baiting. Hmmmm... hotwings and beer. wink

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
