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.

If you really feel that way, I'll take those decoys off your hands. whistlegrin

interesting analogy...I'd get shot I know that! I guess that's the whole food chain thing though

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

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
