Hunting on Lakes

If you are hunting on a lake can you get out of your boat and hunt on a small island or do you have to be in your boat at all times?

I would say 99% of places you can be out of your boat, but check with your local game warden. I know a WMA in TN I hunt has a rule that you cant hunt outside of your blind.

I may be completely wrong but I think that it is illegal to get out of the boat while hunting public water in alabama. The reason why you can get out at guntersville is because all the land at guntersville is TVA property and it is legal to hunt any of their property. But like any lake on the coosa river for instance is controlled by alabama power or say smith lake which is on the warrior river or black warrior or whichever is also alabama power. Don't hold me to this but I'm pretty confident that is the rule. If so, guntersville is the only public water you can wade, that I know of. Hope this helps.

if its private property then you can only float it and can not even let your decoys touch bottom. if its public property then you are completely fine.
