pa plond

Postby SQUAWKnemi » Sat Dec 14, 2013 12:46 am

Hopefully this doesn't turn into a jump shoot type argument or mojo jerk string debate thts not why I'm posting this, my buddy brought it up at the bar tonight and were curious. I know the concept, I've heard it works, and he wants to try it for quick local hunts while birds are around before we hafta start driving at least an hr for every hunt. The number of birds around my area is awesome right now, well for this area considering the isn't any large bodies of open water in the immediate area. Everything's frozen though except the local creek with houses along it, as always its loaded with birds. I have permission to hunt just about every local field and farm pond but everything but the local creek frozen over so they just want to go there.

but what I'm getting to, we all know pa's long standing opinions on doing anything other than hunting over standard deeks in cut corn or on water with normal calls. Has anyone talked to wardens about plonds. I talked to my uncle, he's a warden and said he doesn't see why you couldn't he wouldnt consider it baiting, than again one wardens opinion on a law in this state can be the complete opposite of other wardens and half of them probably couldn't id a black duck from a mallard hen, theyr just worried about deer season.

I'm going to give the regional office a call next week if I get a chance but I figured maybe someone here has talked to someone and knows more than I. So if anyone knows anything let me know I have a beer riding on the legality of it in pa.

I wouldnt think twice about doin it. As a matter of fact, if the snow sticks around, Ill be making one too. The man can kiss it if he wants to write me a ticket for being creative and thinking outside the box! I would fight that all day.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.

If I am not mistaken... I do believe this is illegal in PA... I think I read in the book about imitating artificial places for ducks to land by using dye or tarps to look like water. I thought so... Maybe I read that somewhere else though?

The pictures in the "honey hole" forum look good but if you have any wind at all I could see where it would be a major hassle getting the thing spread out. As far as baiting goes how could it possibly be "baiting" you are not even messing with any type of food source so I can't see how that would apply. The old timers used to pour bleach on the ice of ponds to make it look like open water and I guess it worked but I have never seen it done, nor have I ever seen/used a plond. Let us know how you make out...... :thumbsup:

Thats what i ment not really baiting but an artificial surface. I know using turf or similar products is illegal but where I saw the rule last year i didn't read anything about black tarps or imitating water, i could b wrong tho i skimmed it over because i didn't think about ever doing it. But what if u were to throw water on top a couple inches deep creating a little 15x15 water hole than where is that line drawn between a plond and a pond with a liner. Il hafta call but i have a feeling i won't get a straight answer.

and as long as were on this subject what about those stupid kids play corn cobs Avery puts in with fb geese. R they illegal?

I would hope you plan on plonding in the south zone right now.
I don't have a catchy phrase to put here!

All you have to do is pump water on a pond or field and you are legal. You may have to do a little shoveling now though. :crying: You can not lay down a tarp and fill with water though.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

That's federal law. They're illegal everywhere except I think for the conservation snow goose hunt. Check on that before you use them.
