    the "anchor" part is wrong. All forward momentum provided by the motor must have ceased. You can drift along with current or wind all you want. I do it all the time.

    The rule of thumb used by law enforcement is if there's ANY wake coming off the stern,the vessel is in motion and that includes ripples. The wisest thing to do is lift the motor and use a paddle. Then,there's absolutely no question.

    When hunting waterfowl, I can be using a canoe with a motor attached. As long as it is not running, I could paddle the canoe and shoot from the canoe. (or boat for that matter)

    That is a different case. I know not to spray you with the extinguisher, but you would hope if you caught fire I would do it anyways right.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    A big issue is the actual event of the shot.
    For ducks, if you are jump hunting from a canoe it is easy. No matter how windy or how much motion the canoe is under-- your brain just accommodates that movement with the flight of the duck as it jumps and flies away.

    A rifle shot is totally different. I have only done it once and it was successful for a deer. But it is a very difficult shot. The canoe always has tiny bit of movement no matter you try to keep it still. So you have to slowly move the rifle while scoping the animal. When your sights have been stable a few seconds on the desired spot then shoot.
    I did it from a small lake.
    A creek or small river would be easier with a closer shot and more shelter from wind.
