Hunting from a kayak, legality?
So I mentioned doing a "blast 'n cast" to someone last evening, as this would be a perfect time to hit the river in a canoe or kayak, catch some smallies, and clean up on the squirrels I've been seeing along the river all summer.
Firstly,are there any not-well-known legalities to this?
Secondly, the response I got from the person I mentioned it to, was pretty much, "If you're going to do it, you need to make sure you're completely still in the water before you shoot, otherwise you'll be "under power" and it's illegal". Is there any truth to that? Not that I'm talking about shooting squirrels from a kayak between paddle strokes, but dropping anchor every time you see a tree rat seems like a real pain in the butt.
Not to mention, it seems totally unintuitive for that to be a legal issue, when for their own registration purposes, kayaks and canoes are "unpowered watercraft" to start with.
