New to layout for divers. Want to go up to the lake and was wondering about the distance form shore a hunter needs to be. and any other advise one would be willing to divulge. Not new to duck hunting but just got all the tools for a layout diver hunt. PM me if necessary. Thanks for the help. Don't want spots just some advice form another layout hunter. How deep?

Unless your hunting near shore on Flathead Lake, you HAVE to have a tender boat!! Especially on Flathead!! The weather can turn sour quick and sh!t can hit the fan! Legally, you can hunt as close to shore as you want, but I wouldn't set up right there in downtown Polson. :lol3: :lol3: Good luck and let us know how it goes! Diver hunting can be a lot of fun on Flathead.
Btw, if you know where the narrows is located, that would be a spot to check out! :thumbsup:
Good luck erich! Keep us posted! :thumbsup:
On state lands, you must be 1/4 mile away from a dwelling before you can shoot. I don't think that applies to archery. And on Flathead, I don't know the specific laws, but just use common sense. I don't want to hunt by a dwelling anyway! :smile: But as long as your not hunting near an inhabited structure, it's game on! :thumbsup:
