    by just banning on wma's all that will do is allow the big duck clubs and private land owners to kill more birds. i say ban them all together dont just half azz it

    Use them, kill your limit, pull your decoys, let someone else hunt that hole.
    The limit is the limit.

    Dang! Why can't Waterfowlers just get along? Keep bringing up the same ol thing, same ol thing.......................blah, blah.

    I'm a die hard jerk stringer to the end. But, that being said, I've seen times when a spinner works when nothing else does. I'd just as soon see them banned on WMA's, but as long as there legal, if that's what they want I'm gonna give it to them.

    ....ding..ding...ding! we have a winner. Folk's, its that simple. We will not be successful with just a state ban, ergo the reason it was lifted.

    So, if I click yes I am a jerk string traditonal duck hunter with all the right moves. If I click no, I am a novice, no skill, compound bow shooter?

    i dont believe banning spinning wing decoys will slow the problems you all are mentioning. then if you ban them in wma private land owners who kill waaaayyyy too many birds anyway will really hammer them
