Floating or Ghoast round Legal??

Recommended Posts

So some say it is illegal to have a floating or Ghost round (in between the chamber and magazine) I think it is legal cause the waterfowl booklet states "…With a shotgun that can hold more

than three shells, UNLESS you plug it

with a one piece filler that cannot be

removed without disassembling the

gun."

So if your gun is capable or you changed it so it is capable what are your guys thoughts?

Some guns can keep a fourth round right below the chamber but not in the magazine.

I'm not sure on the legality, its a gray area, but how many ducks can you really kill on shot #4?

as I understand it you can only have three shells in your gun and thats it. a ghost round would be four but I guess you would be better asking a question like that to the DNR or your local CO. go to the Dnr web site and ask them they answer in about 1 to 2 days.

Myself I only will use three shells because thats how I interpet the law.

Not legal. Most repeaters will jam if you try to operate them with a floater. CO's will only inquire about floating a shell if you have a gun that will work with a floater & they suspect a fourth shot being fired. To answer the question that's coming - older Benelli's

I do not shoot a Benelli, but I know some guys that like to float the fourth and plead the fifth. It is illegal.

Older benelli do but is illegal 3 in gun is the law. Just try pleading the 5th it won't work. You will have to try to get your gun back for next season. 3 in gun means more time away from wife!

But you can alter the new SBE II to do it

spring conservation order has never required the use of a plug. i dont want to drop $100 on an extension, so i'll float one if i'm on a jump shoot.

    • That's interesting. I would think there would be too much commotion for loons, but apparently they get adapt.   About a month ago there was a wild turkey standing in the intersection of 9th & Marquette Ave downtown during the evening rush hour. As you can imagine it had no idea what to do or where to go, and it caused quite a bit of commotion and traffic backups.    
    • Yes, I would say the smallie action was good. A couple days we had to work for them. I was using my fly rod with a murdich minnow and was out catching the spinning guys. 
    • smallies biting for you guys pretty good? we were up there a couple of weeks ago and the fishing was pretty slow, except for the 10-12" walleyes; we were on little turtle lake in Mine centre, needless to say,  we are not going back there
    • Walleye fishing remains quite good with a nice mix of quality fish.  Caught these three Saturday afternoon in just a few hours. 17", 18", 19+". Fish were caught from 10 - 19 FOW, again all near tips of points.  Crawlers put more in the boat than leeches, but better have both along. Can't wait to get back.
    • Grackles, and to a lesser extent, red winged blackbirds, have taken over my feeders. They’ve pretty much scared everything else away, and they eat up everything I put out. Anything I can do to get rid of them? Aside from thistle, is there any other bird seed they won’t eat?
    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
