The US Forest Service is collaborating with states on a unique way to stop poachers.  They set up robotic animal look alikes which lure people.

They set a trap involving the robots.  Then they hide nearby.  When someone attempts to shoot the fake animals, they arrest them.

In some states, shooting at a decay carries the same penalties as shooting at a real animals..

Robotic animals are made to look like the real deal.  They can cost anywhere from $500 to $6000 depending on the animal.  Evidently, it works because they keep catching people.
