Is it legal to duck hunt

Postby BearMan » Mon Jan 09, 2012 8:23 pm

The Snake River near Melba at C Park.

I'm new to duck hunting and to the forum, so please let me know if I should take this post down. I tried not to give the full name, but I know certain topics can be touchy on these forums. Thanks in advance.

If you're on the river I don't see why it wouldn't be legal. Call DFG and clarify.
There are no ducks in the desert!

That is actually a park. They have posted the "safety zone" signs. But how far from the park you have to be, I don't know. There is a road on the north bank that runs from there to the next park up. Look at a map and make sure you are out of the park's boundaries. Then I'm sure you'd be ok.

I can't find anything in the ID regs. I guess just use common sense. If you don't think it's safe, don't do it. Or when the old lady comes out screaming, you'll know you're too close!

Cool. Thanks for everyone's help! I'm still trying to figure this whole duck hunting thing out (I just want to put my dog on birds before the season ends) and don't want to step on anyone's toes!
