Are trees cosidered natural vegitation

6 posts in this topic

I found a decent spot by shore to hunt. Its not private land but where I normally sit in rushes there is too much ice. If I can tuck my boat under overhanging trees is that considered vegitation as the law sates?

ya i am pretty sure. how close are they to the water?? best bet would be to contact the local CO and see what they say.

In a boat there has to be emirgent(sp)vegetation which means coming out of the water. I would call the co tho.

use it all the time on big lakes and i have never been stopped. just get as close to shore as possible and you should be fine. I'm sure a warden would comment on it but no ticket.

I was told by a CO that all you needed was 1 single piece of vegetation to technically be legal. This guy was pretty strict usually, but said he wouldn't, so I would think most would say OK.

At that rate we could use a very low profile boat to lay out in short growth of weeds and still be legal.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
