    Default Waterfowling in a boat question.

    Hey Duck hunters have a question where 3 people have told me 3 different answers.
    When Duck hunting does the engine have to be out of the water.
    Also, does the boat have to have an anchor.
    On the ofah website says that the boat just has to stop moving.

    Boat has to stop moving and motor off. You can hunt from a human propelled moving craft like a kayak, canoe or a scull boat.

    Here's the reg:

    A reference in these Regulations to the use of a power boat does not include the use of a power boat when the motor is not in operation and forward progress has ceased.

    Here's a link to the regs:

    Do you have a reference to the regulation that allows that?

    I am under the impression that you cannot discharge a firearm at all if the boat is moving from motor propulsion.

    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    Oh god here we go again................you have to do everything possible to recover that cripple and yes that includes shooting from a moving boat under power. This topic has been beat down so many times on this forum (the cripple aspect). Yes you can have your motor in the water for the hunt just not under power and all forward momentum has stopped UNLESS you are chasing a cripple then you NEED to recover that cripple which include chasing them down and dispatching from a moving boat under power. I don't need to provide regs to prove it, that's up to you to look them up. I've had C O's tell me the rule and have had them watch us do it, it will be the guys that just let that cripple swim off with out attempting to recover it who will be charged...........

    Sure.... just like trespassing to recover a wounded deer is also legal.....or shooting wounded birds/deer/moose after legal time.....

    If its not in the regulations, dont do it. Otherwise your faith is in the hands of the CO that is watching you.
    I prefer chasing a cripple without my gun, then spending the next 2 years in the legal system.

    For those who still have doubts about this, here it is straight from the MNR website :

    Question: What are the regulations around retrieving migratory game birds and subsequent use of harvested birds?

    [COLOR=#333333]Answer: The regulations require hunters to have an adequate means of retrieving birds and immediately make every reasonable effort to retrieve a migratory game bird that has been killed or injured, and if it is still alive that they kill it immediately. A power boat may be used to retrieve a crippled, injured or dead migratory game bird. However, you may not shoot at a migratory bird while the boat is in motion. Migratory game birds taken must be then counted toward daily bag and possession limits. Also to be taken into account is that some provinces and territories have laws which require that edible meat of harvested game not be wasted, destroyed, spoiled or abandoned.
