Thanks to the MWFA, we have reduced the offshore yardage in most Counties from 800 to 400 yards. I was handing out MWFA litterature at the Somerset Blind Site drawing and explaining that the Pocomoke and Tangier sounds will now be open for offshore (cans, bb's, redheads, ect ect) as well as seaducks and that the new line is 400 not 800 yards. Everyone was pleased even a couple of guys from Queen Annes Co. who hunt down here, then they said "Hey, Don't try this up where we live!" So I got to thinking why not change the law to say this. If you are a resident, of a county, that does not allow blind sites (Q.A. & Kent) then you are NOT eligable for a blind site in any other county. You are also not eligable to hunt on ANY blindsite in the State of Maryland. If you are a resident of a county that has an 800 yard limit for offshore/seaduck hunting You are NOT eligable to hunt within 800 yards of ANY shore line. In addition fines will be set at a manditory $10,000 and you WILL forfit your Res. Lic. for 10 years if you are found to be hunting on a blindsite in Maryland or within 800 yards. If these laws are passed then the majority of the (average Joe) hunters may have a larger voice than the few "Fat Cat" hunters/landowners/outfitters that the politicians are afraid to "**** off" or for selfish reasons want "Their Properties" to recieve special treatment that is not afforded to the rest of the state. I'd really like to know what you guys think. I'm not trying to "Stir The Pot" but why should certain Counties be treated differently???? They always have the option to lic. thier own shoreline?
