body booting

Postby Average Joe » Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:40 am

Anybody know how "body booting" plays into areas with restrictive blind laws and liscencing. If you remaing within blind distance laws can you hunt in areas that require blind liscence without one since you are not in a blind?

Google and utube can best explain it but its basically standin amongst large rafts of decoy on shallower shoals were divers feed with out the aid or large footprint of a blind

I think you missed the intent of the question, layout boats are considered floating blinds therefore would fall under blind laws. Body booting does not use a blind which is why I'm wondering if restrictions still apply. Just curious if anyone has every dealt with it before. Will probable end up calling GW.

I know body booting is done here in Maryland. To do it you have to have a licensed blind site or be in the sea duck zone.

Probably my favorite episode to date.
I would call the Fish and Game in your state and see if they know what you're talking about.

Funny how everything in NY is so over regulated and yet, we don't have to license blinds etc...although in some areas (the Hamptons) it's more regulated on a town level.

I can't believe all of the regulations I have heard about on this site. I couldn't imagine lottery picks for hunting a blind, hunting only on certain days of the week, or having such a short season. It makes me sad to think all you guys have to try and enjoy the sport with such laws. I haven't had to deal with them so I'm not sure if it benefits the hunters or not.

In Maryland you can bodyboot at stake blide site. I have no idea if it is legal where you are hunting. You should checks the regs for the state you are hunting in.
