Robo Deer?

Back to the deer decoy discussion, Florida appears to have a famous one.

I have to admit it would be a kick in the pants to watch people go after these decoys....

BLAM!...geez, he's stupid...BLAM!...still standing there...BLAM!...now I know I hit him with that one...BLAM!...WHY WON'T YOU DIE???!!!

They ought to develop one that charges the sound of the gunshot -- then they'd really have something.

Wisconsin has been using these things for years, quite successfully I might add. My recommendation would be to have one on a flip-stop so when it was shot and hit it would tip over with a loud clank, kind of like a carnival shooting gallery.

Grin

Yeah I got a kick out of the guy who crawled through the water and shot at it with a pea-shooter...

PLING PLING....PLING PLING... PLING PLING....

The guy that ran the thing over with the truck was a little disturbing though.

He was probably frustrated and desperate after running out of ammo.

Heh heh, your probably right.

DAG NABIT!! Shot the whole darn box up on that stupid buck. I'll learn'm him not to mess with ME!

The guy tackled the decoy was hilarious too. Come on, at what point would you realize that it isn't real when you walk up to it and it doesn't move. Perhaps these people aren't sober...

I dont if there sober or not...I love the picture of it jumping off the ground, you can tell its a robot. Soon they will have signs "Beware next 2 miles" (Having that picture and saying Robot deer"BEWARE")
