DNR airplane on opening day?

Postby scdc » Mon Nov 21, 2011 8:31 pm

There was a plane that kept circling a common waterfowl hunting area on opening morning Saturday at a low altitude in the upstate. At first I didn't know what the heck they were doing but I started to think it was the DNR taking a surveillance of the amount of hunters in the area. Anybody else had this happen before? If so, what were they really doing??

That would be my thoughts as well.
You know your hunting in South Carolina when a bunch of ducks fly in and you shot both of them!!

That wasnt DNR that was USFW, the feds.... They do that alot in GA as well...Its a combination of looking for bait and getting an estimate on hunters and boats in a given area to determine the pressure and help disperse resources to do checks...That is all per a USFW that checked us last season...Its easier for them to fly a plane and send the DNR or feds to the correct boat ramps, rather than having 1 guy at multiple ramps they can have a few guys at the busiest ramps...

That plane got so low over me I could have sprayed steel all over it. Was a really wasted morning after it showed up twice and never left. And right in prime time too but it wasn't dnr I know cause we were checked and he didn't know who it was
