From the Arkansas Democrat Gazette:
The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission lifted the statewide ban on spinning-wing decoys as part of its 2008-2009 waterfowl regulations package at its monthly meeting Thursday at Little Rock.
Duck hunters will be allowed to use spinning-wing decoys on both private and public land this season. . . .
“We took a survey . . . last year that showed folks wanted us to bring the spinning-wing decoy back[,” said commissioner George Dunklin of DeWitt . . . .]
“[The] U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service . . . sent us a letter in March saying that hunting with spinning-wing decoys had no demonstrable impacts on overall [duck ] harvest rates or [duck ] population levels.”
What’s your reaction? Should spinning wing decoys be legal or not?
