Can you believe it?
Do stupid crap win stupid prizes. If you’re a crook, this is one buck that’s laying in wait … for YOU.
Pinching the poachers. What a clever little idea.
It borrows an idea from the big cities. The ‘bait car’.
You’ve probably seen the bait car concept, right? A car is left unattended, looking ‘vulnerable’ to the opportuninstic con. It’s decked out with cameras, remote control, and doors that remotely lock the occupant in.
The would-be thief drives away… only to find the vehicle stalls out, with the thief trapped inside the car.
Now why did we take the time to talk about the bait car?
Because Idaho Fish and Game has their own version.
It’s a robotic 4-point buck.
First, they find places where there is a problem with poaching.
It moves its head, looks extremely realistic, and it’s a 4-point buck… which is illegal to hunt during archery hunt season.
There was a problem of people in the back of trucks with their bows drawn, and arrows knocked. And this was part of the solution they came up with.
What happens if you shoot it anyway?
Boom! A $1000 fine. (We’ve got a video of how this looks in practice)
And they managed to save a real deer from poachers in the process! Win-win.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
