I've stayed out of this discussion, but this morning four duck hunters were shooting ducks in Stewart Park, just off the tennis courts. Although they might technically be legally "offshore", they could have walked to the parking lot without getting their feet wet. And they barely got their feet wet to pick up their ducks; not even knee high water. One could argue where the shoreline actually is when the lake level is down or the edge frozen. For all intents and purposes they were IN the park.
I'm pro hunting, but not in my city park!
