Lake Gaston

Thread starter #1
Happy New Year Everyone. I have left a message for the local game warden but thought I would ask the question here. It's about impossible it seems to find the hunting regulations for Lake Gaston. Since its not game land I was wondering if anyone on here knew the regs for waterfowl hunting up there.

Have stayed off private property and away from homes. Be respectful of those that live there. Haven't hunted there in a few years but there are some pretty spots.

For what it's worth, I don't believe there are any specific regs that apply to the entire lake (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The normal Federal / State waterfowl regs apply. Any specific rules as to legal distance from dwellings would be local or county ordinances as opposed to being for the entire lake. So Warren County, Halifax County, Northampton County, etc. could in theory have different rules. I'm not aware of specific county rules up there, but as a general rule of thumb, I would stay roughly 150 yds away from houses and don't hunt out of someone else's duck blind and you should be fine.
