Two birds in Hand, One Ticket in the Pocket

Three Kentucky hunters charged with using illegal decoys

Outdoor Life Online Editor

A trio of Kentucky hunters decided that using live turkeys as decoys would be a good idea. A game warden caught wind of the scheme and thought it would be a good idea to charge the three with using illegal decoys.

The warden caught the hunters coming out of the woods, each carrying a live hen under one arm and a dead tom under the other. On top of using live decoys, two men were also slapped with fines for not checking or tagging their birds.
