I will never understand the attraction to hunting. Ooh!! I outsmarted a duck. Yay me. Why dont' they just blast the damn decoys, it would be just as sporting.

when did we do that?

The decoys don't go as well with a fine sauce and rice pilaf.

They later added that,"if you begin to move toward mechanical devices, then all of a sudden, it's a pornographic video. Then the
next thing you know, it's menage a trois. It's always some other gimmick."

They must have read the Pat Robertson article

...debate over the ethics of hunting and technology's role in and its affect on the great outdoors.

Let's see... how many of those hunters use technologically advanced shells, or guns for that matter. I don't see anyone throwing spears at a damn duck.

"roboducks go against the "fair chase" ethic, which calls for sportsmen to hunt in a way that doesn't give them an improper advantage over their prey"

So the hunters should be required to put on beaks, web their feet and peck the ducks to death? Probably should have their legs tied together too, since their size is also an improper advantage over tiny ducks.

They're banning robotic duck decoys? Screw them. I've hunted many a robotic duck. You couldn't possibly have a favourable outcome unless you're using robotic duck decoys. They look innocent, but the mechanical heart which whirs beneath their bright yellow exteriors is pure EVIL! They like nothing more than to shoot lasers from their beady little eyes as soon as they spot you.

Oh, they look cute alright, but you will feel diferently when their titanium allow bills are burrowing into your flesh.

why a duck, I asked
I bear it no ill will
we've feathered its nest
gave it the best
and I know we've payed the bill.

why a duck, I say
why feelings must be marred
let's just say hark
we don't give a fark
and call it a base canard.

I think you are allowed to hunt with a robotic duck so long as you have one of those sony robotic dogs to retrieve the ducks you shoot down.
