I propose a new hunting season!

There has recently been an abundance of these inflatable christmas yard decorations. The things are hideous!
I propose an archery only hunting season starting on the 26th and going through the 31st.

We use these, and give people "pie" for the life of their tacky decorations.

You mean the inflatable Santas that are left deflated during the day, looking like Santa had a terrible skydiving accident?

We are plagued by Christmas inflatables in my city.
The latest Christmas lawn fart is Santa on a Harley

So the next step would be a hydrogen-filled Santa and reindeers that will float above your rooftop.

I would buy a permit for that season and hunt to my limit or over EVERY DAY. I might not even have to leave the mobile home park to do it.

However, it should be extended to include inflatable Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations... so Labor Day to MLK Day. When they start selling inflatable Easter yard decorations, it should be year-round hunting.

And what about a special category for the tactical junkies to snipe out those Christmas lights that are left installed *after Christmas*? You know, people that just plug them off and left them there the whole year.

This is a free country! You all are a bunch of raggin' a$$ busy bodies. Just a bunch of finger-waggin' old hens. I say if someone wants to put the Goodyear blimp in their yard and leave it there all year, then that is their right. Go find something better to do. I'm going to ride around and look at all the cool decorations on peoples' yards.
