I know the Wildcat isn't on the navigable waterway roster, but can I legally float in a kayak and hunt birds on the water on the Kokomo reservoir and the Wildcat upstream of it, outside of city limits? There is "public" property around most of it, but I don't think it's a DNR property.

Answer from the local CO: The Wildcat creek is non-navigable, meaning you can float it but you may never touch the bottom or the bank without permission, so that's practically a no-go unless you get permission along a particular stretch. The reservoir and stretch of creek upstream to the 213 bridge is owned by American Water Co, and while technically private, they allow fishing, hiking, and kayaking by the public, but any kind of hunting anywhere on their property is strictly forbidden.

Thanks for the info. I need to get out and buy a kayak, would open up several spots for me down here in Morgan co.
