early goose water rule

Recommended Posts

Kodiak

what is the official rule on hunting water in the early season. can you use a decoy setup on water, is there any special rules on this. i have had trouble securing a field this year and my regular fields are all corn. yes i do the work and scouting, so i think i am just going to go to my duck spot and try it out, pending you can hunt over water in the early season. metro area.
