    Yea, bank your boat, put blind up & throw out a couple doz. decoys. Then go down a couple hundred yards, drop 2 or 3 decoys & hide. Should be good to go.

    All this bank hunting that's going on reminds me of why my local game warden always has 4 ink pins in his front pocket.

    If your on the Big O, better make sure you have permission from the landowner before you "build a blind" and "ditch the boat" to duck hunt. Or, have a good lawyer with ya.

    Got 2 places on Big O with permission. I place on Big O I can walk in permission. 2 Places on Ky river permission Salt River 1 permission. Guist Creek lake permission of a bunch of land owners. On Taylorsville lake don't need permission. But you are right A LOT of places you need permission.

    Glad to see some guys follow the rules. There are a lot of new guys (duck dynasty bunch) that think you can hunt anywhere you want along the bank without landowners permission. Some of them have gotten the paperwork (ticket) that says otherwise.

    There are many places I know we could kill a lot more ducks if we could get out of the boat, however that isnt always an option for us without trespassing.

    True that, I been hunting these flat foots since 1974. No matter what im hunting or fishing I always ask permission first. Places I found on Big O I found spots. Marked it on River map. Then went searching for who owns the land. Once found I always asked then explained. I don't want to hunt your land or cross your land. Just permission to sit on the bank and shoot Ducks. 3 of the places I found 2 gave written permission. One wouldn't give it at all. Around Guist creek lake I know every farmer around it. Some I boat to. Some I can just drive thru the farm.

    I didn’t know you could hunt guist creek even with permission. I fish there a lot when other lake levels are low just sense it stays the same year round

    YES it is open to Waterfowl. F&W has a 25 foot buffer around the lake. You can stay on the buffer zone you are ok. But need to boat to most places. But if you get 25 feet from water line you are on private property. Been hunting it since 1974. But it is a HIT MISS lake. If ponds are open not many Birds on the lake. When things freeze up and you cant launch boat from ramp. Birds on the lake.

    I am not scared of Itall. I have known him since he was a pup. Too bad he went and got all wifed up and taken out of the game. He was a good sport. He was the only guy I would see when I was out hunting during the February taxidermy season. It always made me feel safe knowing I was on his river and he was the only other guy out there. If I had boat trouble and broke down, I could always count on him to drive by and give me the finger.
