will always depend on the warden with something like this. use to it was hunt were ever you could get in your boat... just don't get out... apparently there was a big change on the hunting side of things 5-6yrs back I believe but fishing and boating still the same... I don't mess with it as far as duck hunting anymore unless I talk directly with a warden of the area.. or the few that possibly could show up.. but bowfishing... ill be were ever my boat can get..
The warden I talked to said I could walk the water and follow it. He was the county warden. All I'll say is this is not a dfw lake. "Just shoot back toward the main body of water" he told me. If you come to the waters edge and see a pot hole 30 yards across dry land....full of ducks, walk away as that would be trespassing if you break dry land to reach it (obviously). Another warden told me when I hunt the red, just don't piss off the deer hunters cause we all know where your pellets are going....so if I don't get the call from them nothing's harmed. But if I get the call I will have to shut you down (warning, no ticket he said)
For the record we had 2 really nice hunts on this lake following the water and I never hunted the red like I wanted too.
