Lake Koshkonong Mud Lake Duck hunting

Postby Rhock19 » Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:28 pm

I went out to the Mud lake that is connected to Lake Koshkonong the other day just looking for some duck hunting spots. I have read somewhere online that most people hate it out there since the hunt club on the lake acts like they own mud lake. Has anybody ever had any problems out there? I saw plenty of woodies and mallards while looking around and seems like a fun place to hunt. Any input would be great! thanks

Don't want to get into an arguement here and I am not positive on this, but I believe it is owned by the hunt club. I have actually seen it listed for sale.

Honestly I would find a different place to go. I hunted on the public land on the east side across from Blackhawk Island and it's like WWIII out there. I wouldn't go back out there at least until late season. Just my $.02.

Last year I early season goose hunted the river connecting the two bodies of water. Did not have any problems with the hunt club, but they promptly put up some serious Signage (no tresspass) EVERYWHERE after they noticed me hunting there.

I agree with you after scouting it, I will be there at somepoint, just not sure when I will get in.

I have heard some big issues with one of the land owners on the north side of the lake claiming the entire bay to be his. He harassed some people into leaving last year on the opener...

Since all of this occurred, I programmed the Jefferson Cty sheriff number into my phone as a speed dial. If at anytime you have a landowner harassing you, first verify you're legal, then call the sheriff and make a point to record what the harasser is saying to you. I refuse to back down anymore on these issues...

absolutely! A warden will have no problem ticketing a person harrassing a hunter. Some people think they own the whole lake

They do think they own the whole lake, the DNR knows they're bullies too. Get them on video, they'll get some pretty hefty fines.

Bring your regulations, it clearly states what bodies of water are considered public. No one owns a body of water if there is public access or they have permission on someones land that allows them access.

There is a privately owned lake by Fond du Lac (Lake DeNeveu) but there is a creek that goes under a roadway and through my dad's boss's yard, that creek bed is public because he doesn't own the creek bed itself and you can access it from the road, so people can take and walk down that creek to the shoreline of the lake and walk anywhere they please. As long as their feet are wet. Kind of a dink move, but legal as pointed out by the warden.
