Waterfowl hunters are getting ticketed if they don't have running lights on their boats when going out to hunting areas in the dark.
I talked to a hunter at one of the boat ramps on the Snake River today who ended up getting fined $84.
Marine deputies are enforcing the running lights law to prevent accidents.
There were six boats at one ramp and seven at another ramp within five miles on the river so you know there is some busy boat traffic in the morning.
A marine deputy said they have heard of near crashes on the river in the dark with faster boats overtaking slower ones.
Better get a set of running lights. It could be expensive without them.
By the way, duck hunting was terrible Sunday. Most hunters reported poor hunting.
It was a complete turnaround from last weekend when hunting was good.
