That was my thought as well. I've been out and about during the split in the past but have never been stopped. Never stopped to think about it before now and wanted to make sure.Leave the gun at home, throw in a snoopy fishing pole and get after it! Ha, seriously, I believe as long as you do not have guns, decoys etc, you are ok. But read the WMA regs you are going to just to make sure.
Yup, throw the crappie poles in the boat and catch some dinner for that night!Leave the gun at home, throw in a snoopy fishing pole and get after it! Ha, seriously, I believe as long as you do not have guns, decoys etc, you are ok. But read the WMA regs you are going to just to make sure.
Duck season was still in on Wednesday. He asked about during the split, which is not duck season. Bayou Meto is the only one with a rule stating a date range I believe, which includes the splits.You will get a ticket. Doesn't matter if you have a gun, decoys, calls or not anymore. I found this out for myself on Wednesday at hurricane (luckily he only gave my uncle a ticket). He said they changed the law last year and unless it is one of the exceptions listed you will get a piece of paper that will cost you $205 after court costs. If I were you I would be off the water by 1pm
What if you walk in? I've always wondered this, as I've read the rule book up, down, and sideways and never could find where it stated that all hunters must be out by 1 pm, or even that you had to stop hunting (so long as you've walked in). Never wanted to push the issue to find out, but I've been tempted at times.Even at BM, during the closed split, you have to be off the water by 1 pm.
