East Coast Waterfowlers 2012-2013 season

Postby steve k » Tue Jan 29, 2013 7:53 am

As the 2012-2013 Waterfowl season comes to a close here in NY, I would like to thank all of my clients that hunted with me this year. It’s a pleasure meeting new people and gunning with repeat customers every year. It was a very productive year for us in regards to the number of birds harvested and I think everyone really enjoyed themselves. I purchased a Bankes Revolution layout boat to add to the fleet which got a lot of use so far. The Revolution is truly an awesome layout boat. I have already started booking dates for next season. If you would like to get in on some prime dates don’t wait to long to book your next trip. I currently have 24 days available for the 2013-2014 season. For those that don't follow my Facebook page here are several pics from our season.
Thanks again.
I hope you enjoy the pics.

Same bird as the one floating.

Good season Steve... How does that thing tow (from a small skiff?)

Thanks guys!

Slack, I do not know how a small skiff would tow it, but it does pretty good behind a 28' boat with a 300hp :smile:
I don't tow it all that often due to needing two trailers.

G Maxon,
For me it's very easy. I had a crane fabricated. I hook up the harness and press a button to lift it. :thumbsup:

Tealer,
Would love to have you out.

That's the way to go. When I had mine we towed and as great of a boat as the revolution is to hunt out of the towing sucked. Ended up selling it years ago to go with a normal pull on board. Of course anything short of a 28' duck water and it would probably be rough to bring on board.
