cutting reeds

5 posts in this topic

Can I cut reeds down and use them to hide my boat or is it against the law to cut them down.

I think it depends on where you hunt.

I have read before that you can cut aguatic vegetation as long as it is above the water line...no ripping them out by the roots. Not sure if there's certain areas such as WPA's, WMA's etc. that it's illegal.

If you just bend them over it it makes the cover twice as thick. I also leave a few straglers so it doesn,t look like someone took a hedge trimmer to the reeds.

With legal questions of this nature, I have often found that if I email the DNR using the "contact us" link at their website, they are very responsive. Most times I'll get a response within a day or two. You might want to try this.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
