I'm not looking for anyones honey holes, just information in general.
You may want to read the regs, I don't believe you can be moving and have to be anchored to be in-compliance.
Lots of eyes on the Sky, hope this helps....
Wrong... Only From progress due to the motor or sail. Has nothing to due with current from a river, and says nothing about an anchor. Sounds like YOU should read the regs
First off I said "May want to read" and " I believe", thereby inferring that it was not written in stone and only suggested he read the regs to avoid trouble!
Your right it does not say anything about an anchor, but it does state on page 35,first column, paragraph E) that progress must be ceased.
I have been told by a gamey that he would ticket anyone shooting at waterfowl while free floating down a river, You can fight that fight in court, I won't!
As an average duck hunter just trying to help out another duck hunter it does little to create camaraderie amongst us by using language or gestures that some would consider divisive.
