Perhaps the wheeled decoy.  :dunno:

I think there is a liberal bag limit as well.

When the small game license is 40.00 they turkie tag is 15.00 the fuel cost for most of you guys to get here. Just what does that average out per pound for the delicious hunk of meat?

It's not about the cost per pound as much as the opportunity to collect ticks and try to figure out if the gobble you hear is a bird or someone over calling.
