Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but why does the effigy have a weird deer's leg sticking out where an arm should be?

It's an abstraction. It just needed to look good enough in silhouette, in the dark. Gale probably noticed it was a decoy before she hit it, just not before she was committed to the pounce.

It might be Poncho's poncho blowing in the wind. We can see it was part of the decoy because in the last panel the thing Gale is holding in her left paw has a different texture from the leaves and its color (6C7266) matches the poncho in the first panel.
The cape comes with the promotion.

That's Poncho's poncho posed to be waving in the wind, like an Apollo flag.

You're saying it was a False Flag event?

Hello darkness my old friend

I've come to stalk in you again

Because a cougar softly creeping

Is the reason I am sneaking
And the fear that planted in my brain
By Miles
Within the sound of defiance
In the darkest night I walked alone
Narrow paths of wood and stone
‘Neath the moonlit peace of camp
My fur turned cold and damp
When my eyes were slashed by the flash of
Shining claws
That shot through the night
And faced the sound of defiance
And in the hallowed light I saw
Ten thousand trees, maybe more
Leaves rustling without speaking
My ears perked without listening
Howling sounds with voices they never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of defiance
Fools, it said, you do not know
Silence of the cougar grows
Hear my words that I might eat you
Take you in my arms that I might capture you
By my words, like silent tears fell
And echoed in the walls of the cell
And the wolves howled and cried
To Miles who made them come
And the eyes flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the wolf said, the words of the hunter
Are written on beasts that fall
And darkest calls
And whispered in the sounds of defiance
WOW! Cool! Now... Who's singing it?

I just realized that Poncho is not wearing his Poncho which means we'll see his scar. That will be the perfect opportunity for some backstory on how he got the scar and whether or not Gale was responsible.
