This is copied off the Vermont waterfowl hunting information posted on the Fish and Game webpage,certainly this is not discript enough for a judgement call,but if you understand the hunting laws,no shooting within 500 feet of an occupied dwelling,then obviously this does not apply,unless you have written permission from the owner/occupant,then it is not a problem! The other piont is the right to hunt and fish,if someone interfers with your right and you call the game warden on them,if you are in the right,they can be fined! Now if the fish and game dept starts to fine all these people that are calling the cops on hunters,this will travel thru the lake community and they will soon give up on it or try to get the laws changed! Either way,you make your piont to the ones that are being inconsiderate of your rights! I have already had people fined for this while fly fishing on the rivers in my area,because they called the cops,and when confronted by the cops I requested a warden be called and explained my situation to them,where upon they fined the person interfering with my right to recreation!If you are in the water hunt where you want,do not allow them to push you off!Get them fined!!!!
The current Lake Champlain Waterfowl Zone includes all of Lake Champlain and an additional narrow strip of shoreline in both Vermont and New York. Under Federal regulations, waterfowl seasons, bag limits, and shooting hours in the Lake Champlain Zone must be uniform throughout the entire zone.
Comments received at the meeting, as well as input and recommendations from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, will be reviewed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board.
And this is right out of the Fish & Wildlife 2010 guide book:
Interfering with Hunters, Fishermen and Trappers: It
is illegal to intentionally interfere with someone who is
lawfully taking fish or wild animals, or to disrupt the taking
of any fish or wild animal by harassing or disturbing the fish
