So I thought it was worth throwing out here. What percentage of Idaho waterfowlers agree with this guy?
Here's his quote:
“Stick to your guns, Washington. Ban the Mojo Duck! I’ve hunted waterfowl in North Idaho for 30 years (always on public land) and have seen this one device turn a great tradition of decoying ducks into an Arms Race.
“Last season my 11-year-old son and I were the first hunters in one of our local marshes. We had our traditional, non-mechanical decoys in place before the sun came up and I know from many years of hunting this area that we were in is the best spot. Shortly after shooting hours, several hunters arrived with a spread of traditional decoys and two spinning-wing decoys.
“Our competition limited in several hours while we didn’t get another shot. This was a very frustrating for me since I wanted my son to have a quality hunting experience.
“Hunters shouldn’t have to purchase a very expensive gadget just to be competitive in the field. If the purpose of hunting is to kill more ducks than by all means we should keep this Mojo legal.
“I applaud the state of Washington for banning the mechanical-winged decoys. If Idaho has the courage to make them illegal also, I will be happy to make my Mojo Mallard a very expensive lawn ornament and never use it in the field again.”
