If one was to hunt a public island, could one anchor away from the island 100yrds and hunt legally?
James Island State Park
Yes, because Janes Island SP is listed in §A of this regulation. The waters of Daugherty Creek are excluded.
B. Individuals hunting from a boat at anchor or while standing on the natural bottom in waters adjacent to the properties specified in §A of this regulation shall remain:
(1) At least 250 yards from:
(a) The property line of any landowners adjoining the specified property, or where the line would be if it were extended out over the water perpendicular to the shore at the point where the property line reaches the water’s edge; and
(b) Any licensed stationary blind or blind site or another person or party hunting wild waterfowl;
(2) At least 125 yards from any licensed shoreline on the opposite shore; and
(3) Not more than 1/3 the distance from the specified property to the opposite shore or a maximum of 300 yards from the specified property, whichever is less.

Thank you, not sure why I did not see that.
James Island and Jane's Island are two separate places.
Yeah, one has a canal and the other has a point of land.
I misread the post and thought it said Janes Island. James Island isn't public
im sure he heant to say janes.
i like hunting deale island BTW.
Speaking of Deal.......the regs call out the area north of 363 where you can hunt from a boat, anchor off shore or stand on the natural bottom. For the area south of 363 I am assuming you can still duck hunt as long as you were standing on dry ground on the WMA while hunting?
