I think you misunderstood, and believe my 'urban legend' comment was directed towards decoys and robotic deer for poaching stings.
That was not the case, and I really don't know why anyone would believe such. Setting up sting operations with decoy deer, robotic deer, and road-killed deer (with nice racks) are tactics commonly used all over the United States.
My second comment (after
the quote) should have clearly illustrated that concept.
