Can I hunt anywhere from an anchored boat or do I have to have land owner permission, as I've heard land owner owns into waterway. I've never gotten heavy into duck hunting, hunted over fields a few times and jumped some ditches, that's about it. Really want to spend more time waterfowl hunting this year. I live in colona, Il if anyone can help.
I feel the same way each year after the drawings too... However, it's always good to see some of the guys and talk about years past.
I would recommend contacting your local CO. Yes, you may not get a call back in the first day, but call the local parks up that way that allow duck hunting. I know that this question comes up every year, so it maybe already in the forum. I would also recommend to you to go to local stores and research your area really hard.
best of luck,
