Hunting from a boat ?

Postby chrispbrown271 » Sun Dec 04, 2011 8:46 am

I have read through hunting regulations, boating regulations, state statutes and even fishing regulations and I can not find any regulations on hunting from a boat. So what are the regulations?

Page 6, left column about 3/4 down the page. The motor has to be shut off and the boat can't be moving when shooting from it.

Thanks man. I was looking for state statutes. I assumed that the state would have more restrictive regulations than the feds set up.

What do you want to know? You can look under boating regulations for everything that you need in the boat to be legal as well as other details. As far as hunting goes, the rules are pretty simple as listed in the waterfowl guide.

scenario.. Wounded a duck from our blind on the shore on main lake. The duck was unable to fly but swam down river. Had to retrieve with the boat, but had to shoot it again once i got close..

If you are looking for statues, you won't find it in KRS. You need the KAR title 301. The current waterfowl season is governed by emergency regulations listed on the LRC.
