I agree but some others claim there is never any problems. They are naive in their thinking. At Reelfoot buying decoys for the old timer was unthinkable, why buy when you could borrow and never return the decoys. I did find several decoys in grass this year at a blind site while I was fishing in April. I did pick them up.You are probably correct. I just went to check the regs,and it only talks removal of decoys within 10 days of season close.
So it may be one of those tales passed down thru the years, that has ”become the rule” even though not true.
I was told we had to leave them out by the Ol’timers, many years ago. Just assumed it was true and have done it for years.
Over the years, we have had some issues with things being “borrowed from the blind” and never returned.
Propane stove, heaters, snacks in the gang box, etc…..
Seems every year for the past 7-8 years, we lose 1-3 dozen decoys. This year, it seems 7 dozen picked up and migrated somewhere else.
