decoy transport

Postby rnloutdoors » Sun Apr 06, 2014 8:26 pm

Alright, sorry if this thread is in the wrong spot but I really don't know where else this would go. I have a 14ft vbottom boat with a 8 horse, I usually carry me and one more guy somtime three. I have a blind built on and im running out of room for gear, now i just have a little 8 horse so im not breaking any speed records but has anyone used a magnum otter sled and drug it like a tube and put your decoy bags in there and tie them to it just incase it would flip the wouldnt float away. Or would I be asking for disaster tying to do this .

Thanks guys,

Sounds like a disaster to me, maybe just try cutting down your spread a little?

I've not tried that with a sled, but I've done it several times with an 8' AquaPod. Works like a charm.....

I'd imagine a sled would work as long as you kept the center of gravity low. I.e. don't stack the bags too high. :thumbsup:
I HAVE pulled a sled loaded with gear, including decoys, walking up and down the river. It works okay as long as the CG is low.

Depending on what brand of decoys you are using you might be able to run parachute cord around the boat and then if the decoys have the line cleats on the front of the keel (like GHG) you just hook the decoys onto the cord. It might not work at high speeds or in rougher water though.

I'd agree with mudpack on the aquapod, but i have seen guys make pole hangers or racks for boats to hang bag off of to clear floor space or pop up the blind and if it's stable and can hold a lil weight hang em off that. Just make sure your weight is placed evenly.
