1.duck hunting florida law:

Wildlife management areas (WMAs), water management district (WMD) lands, and national wildlife refuges (NWRs) that offer duck hunting may have special permit requirements and restrictions on when and where you can hunt.
many city ponds and canals falls into public access body of watr plus not even a residential zone..
2.federal migratory bird regulations:

decoys and manual or mouth-operated bird calls.
Hunting is permitted in the open or from a blind or
other type of concealment (except a sink box) or from a
so that means i can basically walk in to a pond next to the a highway that has no signs of closed for hunting, that is filled with ducks, drop my decoys and shot them with bow and arrow (set for bow fishing to recover the ducks and not to loose the arrows), recover them and walk out with a limit and completely legal????
