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

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
