I think the ban on rotating winged decoys is bull. We bought a brand new Mojo floater a season before the ban. Now it is a dust collector in ark. What can we do to abolish this rule? What do ya'll think?

I do agree some what in the fact that I stopped using one about 3 years before the ban. Ducks got real spooky by the time the got here when one of those things were out. But I still think it should be all or nothing and I think the quality would go way up if everybody stopped useing them. Young ducks are easily fooled by them when they wouldn't if it was just a guy and a call. They would still get fooled don't get me wrong but we would see more youngens down here.I don't see it as an all or nothing type deal at all.
Now I'll agree that as far as helping the overall good or population age dynamics of the the flock....AR's ban alone is useless.
When it comes down to the quality of hunting, the ban has done a great deal for AR hunters in that regard. I could tell a significant difference the very first week of the first year of the ban, that it was a good move. Ducks just work MUCH better, without the disco lights flashing all over the countryside. There were piles of ducks killed before the Spinners were ever thought of, piles killed during their tenure here in the state, and piles killed since they've been booted. What does that prove???? Didn't need 'em to kill ducks before they was around....don't need 'em now. Keep the ban in place, I don't care who does or doesn't follow suit...it's their loss with their lack of vision.
