Just a warning about new rules for all duck hunters wanting to hunt Dagmar you can't launch a boat till 4 am. I got a nice ticket opening day and I don't agree with the rule but it cost me points on my license. So everybody be ready for traffic jam when season comes back in trying to launch boats .

I think they need to be consistent across the WMAs for stuff like this. Launching a boat is clearly not leaving early and a completely asinine reason for giving a ticket.


I will say that people talk about green jeans at Bayou Meto a lot, I can't tell you of a time where I've been to dagmar and not been checked. I've had them pull me over out there and go through my truck looking for violations. They stack up at the end of the road and just wait on you to leave. Which is fine, but if I don't appear to be doing anything wrong, it's a little frustrating to have to worry about them looking until they find something.

Got a warning one year because I didn't sign across the face of both stamps, rookie mistake on my part but the warden was nice and gave me a warning. He was wearing a button up Hawaiian style shirt standing in the middle of the road on the way out..

Yea I think the rule is stupid can't even launch and stay parked at boat ramp, rules should be the same as everywhere else. Also dagmar is not set up for that many boats launching at the same time just means people will sleep at boat ramp instead of the food plots
