Antietam Creek

Postby Boonduck » Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:15 pm

Hey guys I am new to waterfowl hunting but wanted to know if anyone floats the Antietam creek in Washington Co. or if it is even legal to do so. I am in the Boonsboro area and the creek is very accessible.

It is not legal to float the Antietam for waterfowl. In order to hunt the Antietam you would have to secure written permission from a landowner for the specific section they owned.

Lefty is correct and if they own one side they own the bottom half way out. you are trespassing to walk to the other side.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.

Thanks guys, I am aware about ownership to the middle of the creek we own quite a bit of creek frontage with our farm close to devils backbone park. However there are many folks that wade to fish it and camp, I was hoping since it was navigable water it could be hunted. I do hunt the frontage we own but it always seems like the geese are either up the creek or down the creek. Oh well my canoe will have to stay on the dry side of things for now and I will stay in the field.

I haven't hunted waterfowl since the 80's, don't know what happened but I got the itch again.
