I took a wildlife law enforcement class back in college.  One of the stories the instructor told of when he was working as a game warden was about one of these things.  He and a partner set up a robodeer in a field, while they sat in a blind just inside the tree line.  They busted a few people for shooting at it.  Then, shortly before evening fell, this old Cutlass Ceirra rolled to a stop at the side of the road.  A little old lady climbed out and started tottering across the field towards the robodeer.

"Shoo!  Shoo!  Get outta here!  They're gonna shoot you!"

Finally, as she struggling closer, and they're tying to hold in their laughter, he had to stand up and lean out of the blind.  "Ma'am!  It's fake.  We're trying to catch poachers."

LikeALeafOnTheWind: Did they change the picture at some point? because all the folks in the article's comments saying its an elk in the picture seem entirely ignorant of what an elk actually looks like..
pretty hard to mistake an elk for a deer and vise versa..
As for it being entrapment? nope, setting up some bait is not entrapment.. now if a cop had handed him a rifle and said.. take a shot at that deer. Then it might be entrapment. This is more like those bait cars that the cops put on the street with the doors unlocked.. the thief that gets in the car and tries to drive away is not being entrapped. free will and what not, no one made the guy stop and take the shot. He could very easily have just kept on going down the road.

If you're dumb enough to stop by the side of the road and take a shot at a stuffed animal, you're dumb enough to mistake an elk for a deer, I guess.

I'll worry when the decoys become self-aware and start shooting back.

I'm thinking this cat was simply standing his ground. If I saw this thing coming at me, I'd light it up too!

If you happen to be driving down the road and see a naked blow-up doll on the side of the road don't pork it!  If you do, you might be charged with rape and definitely don't pop it.

When shooting robotic deer is outlawed, only outlaws will shoot robotic deer.

This guy had a clean shot at a non-moving deer, even had a rifle rest, and he hit it in the NECK?

I don't know, but I do know you can't eat that raw.
