You may recall earlier this year that some waterfowl hunters in the state of Washington were pushing for the legalization of electronic duck decoys.

Washington is one of three states that ban their use, and after a recent vote of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission, it looks like Washington will remain one of three states that ban their use.

From this press release from the fish and wildlife commission:

New hunting rules approved by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission for the 2012-14 seasons will expand hunting opportunities for elk and cougar, but leave intact the statewide ban on using electronic decoys to attract waterfowl.

The commission, a nine-member citizen panel that sets policy for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), took action on those and dozens of other proposed rules during a public meeting March 13-14 in Olympia.
