Should Wildlife Officers Be Allowed To Use Big Game Decoys?

Road hunters give bad PR to our support, and I don't have a problem with F&G going after them.

However, the decoy issue raises an interesting question: If shooting from the road is so dangerous, should game wardens be encouraging it? If we're worried that road hunters will injure themselves or another by shooting at a live deer, is it responsible for game wardens to create those conditions with decoys? I'm wondering what happens if somebody with a case of buck fever has an accidental discharge in a vehicle while scrambling for a rifle. I'm not sure the game wardens could say with clean conscience that the hunter got what was coming to him.

we wouldn't want someone to rustle our cattle, so why should we let them hunt illegal?, catch them by whatever means it takes!

I say heck yes, there are so many "slob" hunters out there, use any and all means to zap them. Amen
