Hopefully this doesn't turn into a jump shoot type argument or mojo jerk string debate thts not why I'm posting this, my buddy brought it up at the bar tonight and were curious. I know the concept, I've heard it works, and he wants to try it for quick local hunts while birds are around before we hafta start driving at least an hr for every hunt. The number of birds around my area is awesome right now, well for this area considering the isn't any large bodies of open water in the immediate area. Everything's frozen though except the local creek with houses along it, as always its loaded with birds. I have permission to hunt just about every local field and farm pond but everything but the local creek frozen over so they just want to go there.
but what I'm getting to, we all know pa's long standing opinions on doing anything other than hunting over standard deeks in cut corn or on water with normal calls. Has anyone talked to wardens about plonds. I talked to my uncle, he's a warden and said he doesn't see why you couldn't he wouldnt consider it baiting, than again one wardens opinion on a law in this state can be the complete opposite of other wardens and half of them probably couldn't id a black duck from a mallard hen, theyr just worried about deer season.
I'm going to give the regional office a call next week if I get a chance but I figured maybe someone here has talked to someone and knows more than I. So if anyone knows anything let me know I have a beer riding on the legality of it in pa.
