Swamp Puppy wrote: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.


:withstupid: That seems to be the only explanation that makes sense. So it is baiting, then, or is it a decoy?

HW, it is a Decoy. Because it is not an agricultural product, nor does it have any properties that would attract wildlife using taste, smell, or feel as a medium. Thus it is a Decoy.... only visually attracting wildlife. :thumbsup:

It is a decoy, but like swamp pointed out, the intended use is somewhat illegal.

People bait for a while, then when they hunt they replace the bait with the picture of bait. I don't know why people don't just learn how to call and throw some blocks out!

:withstupid: I don't understand why someone would want to use that. To me it gives the impression that you want to bait your field, but can't, so you use the next best thing.

Remember if you do bait a field and decide to use the picture you have to wait 10 days after the last piece of bait has been removed from that area.
