I need HELP finding a duck hunting product.

Postby scalduck » Thu Sep 08, 2005 12:54 pm

I'm looking for a platic picture that looks like a pile of corn poured on the ground. The size of the picture is about three feet by eight feet I can't find it anywhere. HELP THANKS.

I'm sorry I will not help you due to federal baiting laws unless you can convince me that you will not be using this for hunting purposes.

I have no idea what you are talking about with the pic. GHG makes ears of corn and sells them in packs of 4. I think it is the most rediculas think I have ever seen.

Also, I don't think that it would fall in line with baiting. It in itself is a decoy. Just like the ducks and calls that we use. Although i think it is hokey as hell, I don't know its leagality?

Don't waist your time or your money draging that picture out to the field with youl. :thumbsdown:

I dunno man... I doubt a big picture of corn would be considered baiting.

Ace.... :salude:

That was slik.

But eitherway... I dont think it is considered "baiting" because it is just a picture. (no scent, or taste- heck it doesnt even have form. it is more of a sillhouet than anything else)

In PA they will nab for baiting if you are using green carpet or Astroturf.

I know exactly what you're talking about. I saw a picture of it 8 or 9 months ago and had a good laugh.

Check into your baiting laws in your state, but here in Arkansas it would not be considered baiting.

I did find what you're looking for and I'll give you the link if you email me at greenv66@yahoo.com. Don't want to SPAM the forum.

Some states it would be some states maybe not but still, I think hunting ethics should come into play some where.

Ok, I just want to make it clear that I am not tryin to "argue" w/ you OR be a Piss Ant....

BUT, How could these silly little pictures be in the catagory of unethical? If that is the case, then a regular plasic duck decoy would be 100X more unethical.

It is JUST a picture.... maybe you can explain better to me why this to you is even in the same ballpark w/ bad hunting ethics.


(again, Im just debating the principal--absolutly nuthin 'gainst you greenster :salude: )

Man I tell you what guys, I am going to be molding a plastic loaf of bread and paint it to look like the wonderbread bags. Little pokadots and everything. I am going to be running 10 dozen mallards, 2 dozen goose floaters, a dozen sleepers and duck butts, and a dozen floating breadloaf decoys (I will call them loafers)

All the park ducks will flock to my spread! :laughing:

I really don’t have a reason why it would be Unethical, just don’t seem right to me. Reason’s why I think that because they are Very effective maybe even more effective than Mojo's...But I also am an old fashioned hunter I don’t jump shoot or hunt anywhere that there is clearly Grain, seed on open ground / water so IMO I think anything other than calling is kind of cheating and needless to say not as fun... I can’t explain why it’s more of how I was brought up Trying to keep it as fair and fun as possible. But no offence taken by any one just my opinion on things and as you know opinions are like elbows every one as a couple of them.

Oh, aren’t we a sanctimonious crowd. If you can fool them with a photo of food, how can that be any different than fooling them with decoys. Let me know if it works. It would be easier to paint my blind bright yellow like a pile of corn than to cut all those darn oak branches.

There is no way it could be considered baiting.

Ethics, ethics, ethics, just when you think you have a new angle on them birds somebody throws the E word at you.

Around here that’s nothing more than a picture of the tried and true, Agway goose/duck call you don’t buy it by the sq ft, but in the 80 lb bag. J/K, really, juuust kidding

For those who bait, hangings is to good for them, again, J/K

Personally I hate to hear of baiting, to me that’s just flat out lazy, and you’re not a hunter to me. I’m not kidding about that.

I don't call that pic baiting, just funny

ARN, you've got to admit the old boys got principles; he stands for what he believes in

Alright guys here it is the Federal Baiting laws guide book: and it says
"Although you can hunt waterfowl over natural vegetation that has been manipulated, you can not hunt waterfowl over any manipulations of agriculture products that occur before harvest or removal of grain"
I’m going to let you guy's look at this one and decide on it.

Here’s the URL to the guide book, its in PDF format, bottom of page 28 last paragraph is where you’ll find it.

I saw em on macs website the other day....I believe they are Avery. I figured if the geese/ducks are close enough to see corn, then they are close enough to shoot.

what might be happening here is that people will put out piles of actual food to attract ducks...then, to be legal, will stop placing the real food a few days before they hunt and instead use the fake stuff in its place.

the birds are used to seeing the food there..so when they see the "decoy" they come sailing in for dinner.
