What's the law.

Postby RPr » Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:24 pm

Who gives permission to hunt swamps and rivers. I know this will sound silly to you old timers, but I am new to duck hunting.

For Deer, Turkey or Quail you ask the land owner and hunt. But if I float the St. Joe, Tippy, Wabash or paddle a large lake and and find a nice marshy spot, who if anyone do I ask?

Fishing is no problem, the water usually belongs to the State. However, throwing shot onto private property, even a corn field may be another matter.

So I was wondering what the law says and how other Hoosiers hand it.

Thanks,

All rivers are fair game. Lakes, ponds, and marshes are fair game if they are public access sites. if they are privately owned you must get permission. that should clear it up a little.

If its outside the "ordinary high water mark" and it is NOT public land, you must gain permission from the landowner.

You would be well advised to check with the IDNR (and local law enforcement in the area you want to hunt) before you take any of these answers to heart . Be specific about the area you want to hunt because not all "public waters" are created equal .

Yep, for the most part you are good if you stay on public accessible water, but there all many places-around marinas, water within city limits, etc-that you can't hunt. Like the oldman said, call and ask the dnr
Nobody cares about your season totals. Especially if you pay to hunt private.
