In all the latest Hunting Magazines, MPW, Cabelas and such, there's now fake corn cobs for sale. Just wondered what everyone thought about this, Gimmick, Ethical, or even legal? Lots of discussion and interests on other forums.

I personally believe its unethical and just wanted to get a feel for everyone else's thoughts. Bout the only time Id consider using fake corn is in a corn field but out on a lake or pond with no corn fields for miles around, nope.

Stupid and Gimmick. It is legal because baiting by definition the bait has to have nutritional value, but still stupid. If you can't get them to decoy with life like waterfowl decoys I don't think throwing a dozen plastic ears of corn out in the field are going to help you.

So some plastic fake food is unethical but a decoy rig that is powered by motors to swim half dozen deeks around, or one that has a few flying around in a circle is just fine...

My first thought. This "ethical" stuff gets annoying. Do you hunt? If yes then it's not ethical, period. Next question

I'm starting my own company. We're putting out a super-special line of high-quality lighters. How they work is, before every hunt you light a stack of $20s (not included) on fire, say the secret chant and dance that I've included and you're GUARANTEED to have more birds in your spread!

Seriously, it embarrasses me that hunters will actually buy into this kinda stuff.

I bet it would work if you put out enough of it.

To change the subject a little bit. Do y'all think ducks and geese find feed by sight or smell? or both?
