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.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
