Motorized decoys?????

This is my second year now hunting in Pa. I moved from a state where motorized decoys were legal. Not to start a debate about the effectiveness of them, but rather just to be educated why they are not legal here?

Because only real hunters hunt in Pa. :biggrin: They want to make it as tough as possible on us. No battery operated nothing, no baiting, have you seen the antler restrictions. :yes: Welcome to PA. :hammer:
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

That's one way of putting it boatman. It think it helps with the ducks not getting spooked and weary of spreads as quick but then again in Pa (depending on where you hunt) there are a TON of skybusters.
If it flies it dies, if it just sits there it dies too.

It's probably because we kill way too many ducks here in Pa.. Pennsylvania is only second to Arkansas for mallard killing so why would we need an unfair advantage like that....... :biggrin:
