Illegal Hunting Methods
Special:
Post, sign or indicate that public lands (except if under an exclusive-control lease) are private. Hunt on private land without first obtaining permission from landowner or person in charge. Hunt on State Trust Lands without permission of lessee, except those open for wildlife recreation Have a loaded (in the chamber) rifle or shotgun in or on any motor vehicle. Shoot from or use a motor vehicle, motorcycle, off-highway vehicle, snowmobile or aircraft to hunt, intercept, chase, harass or drive wildlife. Hunt under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances. Use any artificial light as an aid in hunting wildlife. Fail to reasonably dress, care for and prepare edible wildlife meat for human consumption. Internal organs are not considered edible portions. Party hunt: kill someone else’s game or let someone kill yours. Use recorded or electronically amplified calls. Use bait to hunt turkeys. Baiting is placing or scattering salt, mineral, grain or other feed to attract wildlife. Only portable blinds or tree stands may be erected on SWAs. These must be removed at the end of the day they are used. No nails may be driven into trees.The hunter's Customer Identification number (CID) and dates of use must be visible on the outside of blinds or underside of stands. Placement of blinds or stands does not reserve them for personal use; they may be used by the public on first-come, first-served basis. Use the Internet or other computer- assisted remote technology while hunting or fishing. This includes unmanned or remote-control drones used to look for wildlife. Hunters must be physically in the immediate vicinity while hunting or fishing
