ANNAPOLIS - Hunters know it as "sneakboating," and if one local lawmaker has his way, it will be allowed on all major waterways in Washington County.
But what is it?
Sneakboating is the use of an unpowered, and often camouflaged, boat for hunting waterfowl. The boat more or less acts as a moving duck blind, allowing a hunter to sneak up on ducks and geese.
Sneakboating in Western Maryland is restricted to the Potomac and Monocacy rivers. A bill in the General Assembly would allow sneakboating on Antietam Creek and Conococheague Creek in Washington County.
