There have been a bunch of geese just out sitting on the ice around here. Would it be legal to set up deekes in a layout blind in the middle of a frozen lake???

What about the requirement to be concealed in natural vegetation when hunting water. Does that same rule apply to hunting hard water? I would think so....but then again it could be similar to field hunting......

I witnessed someone doing this last year, and to my knowledge the DNR dident come and order them to stop.

Thank god I'm not the only maniac out there. I spent an hour watching geese 20 yards away on a river.(about 150 of 'em, mixed with 25-30 swans) I made a perfect stalk on them and they never knew I was there. The only problem, giant sheets of ice floating down the river. I thought retreiving geese while dodging 100#-500# sheets of ice might be the death of me. I did think of forcing my way out there with a canoe and setting up on the ice that they were sitting on. When I told my wife of my plan, she simply told me that I don't have enough life insurance for that. And the wise acre pointed out that my canoe is camo, not white.

why not just hunt them in the field? your going to drag a layout blind and dekes out over ice that may or may not be safe right now...and are the geese roosting there overnight???

i would call the CO if you want the best answer.

I think you have to be in some sort of natural vegatation is the rule with that said. This weekend I layed in a boat out on some ice this past weekend and did pretty well. We layed white sheets over the boats that we drug out for safety and dressed in all white set out decoys and watched them drop in did ok but sure was fun! but we were sitting in some pencil reeds sticking through the ice that we considered natural vegation then.

    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck.

    • Bobby: I am currently a mechanical designer for HVAC/Plumbing/Fire Sprinkler systems... Although i am just using my two year degree and would prefer something more in management since i have a bachelors in operations management. Yes i have started using Indeed, just seems like a lot of "recruiters" post on those sites and not the actual company something about that just bothers me, although i have been going to different company websites to see if they are hiring.    Chasin: Thanks for the response although i get your point of view and I do enjoy fishing/hunting/being outside and all the above. There is limited time for all of that. We are just in the beginning stages of our children.  I noticed that up here the "Vibe" & "Pace" is much slower than the cities.  The big thing is family like some have said 4 hours isnt too far although when your kids only get to see there family 1-3 times a year its hard! That is the main motion for moving back never did we think we would with our first son although once these twins came it was a large decision that we wanted to be able to see family more.  As far as school etc my wife is a teacher and knows what she likes to see in a school district. we currently reside in a  town of 3000 people so we are in a very small school district along with many other things. Do we like it Yes, although things could change!  Ultimately we would raise our kids near family and HOPEFULLY be able to afford a cabin and then retire there at some point... Out kids are young and we are not that old so we have some time for that though!   Del:  Thanks, Unless you have land you will have a crazy neighbor in every neighborhood.
