It’s your turn to go “quack-quack,” Jim
But just LOOK at these people! In all honesty, even if they didn’t have any bullets, and they were there to FEED the ducks, I’d STILL make fun of them for looking like total doofuses.
Grown men sitting out there on hard rocks, wearing camouflage, making “quack-quack” noises to trick unarmed ducks into flying within range? Have they ever taken a look at themselves, because it isn’t pretty.
I mean, look at this “sportsman” on the right. His own dog is obviously thinking, “WTF? Is there some good reason I’m not at home getting a tummy rub?”
And this guy on the left? A robotic duck decoy? I went to a Website that sells these things, and it boasted “the most effective motion decoy since the outlawing of tethered ducks and market hunting.” Good for you, boys, it sounds like you’re making fine use of technology.
I never thought I’d say this about any “sport,” but…
These “hunters” look even funnier than golfers, and almost as funny as bullfighters.
