Flashback to When Illegal Road Hunters Were Caught Shooting a Robo-Buck Decoy

Any true hunter has to love seeing justice served to those who hunt illegally.

Sometimes, it takes a little extra effort to catch people who call themselves sportsmen, but are really nothing short of crooks.

Cruising backroads in search of game, or road hunting, is legal in some areas. That's not the case in Tennessee, though, where this video comes from.

Watch the video to see how illegal road hunters fall for decoy robo-bucks before officials catch them.

These road hunters fell victim to a robot decoy buck Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency Officers placed. This law enforcement trick involves placing a remote-controlled buck near a roadway while they wait for road hunters to shoot at it.

Some of the offenders in the video quickly figure out that they've been had and attempt to run, which is unsuccessful.

The road hunters in this video paid thousands in fines and had their licenses revoked. Let that be a lesson to all would-be offenders. Stop road hunting. Get out of the vehicle and into the woods.
