Default Water Nap...

Because when they go down in the water, it can't be a dirt nap. Had a good morning yesterday. 60 yard shot with .140gr SST dropped him where he stood. Following a doe and got in trouble....

Exactly. Round was a 140gr. Horandy SST from a Model 70 Win. Shot was about 2-3" in front of shoulder mid neck. Dropped like the proverbial sack of potatoes.

You can't shoot from the boat.

It is unlawful to: hunt any wild animal or wild bird, including exotic animals, on foot or from a vehicle on any public road or road right-of-way, or a boat on public water, except that migratory waterfowl may be hunted from a boat or any floating craft (except a sinkbox) under certain conditions.

There's also a "Restricted Areas in Counties" section in the Outdoor Annual.

No. Just got this one a month or so ago. That was an old Godevil rig I had back then.
