" The Black River winds it's way through Dave Donaldson/Black River Wildlife Management area. So during the waterfowl season in particular, many hunters use the river channel to navigate to the general vicinity where they like to hunt. Don't know if you're familiar with the Black but it can be pretty intense at times so a fairly large boat is preferred up to the point hunters enter the flooded timber and leave the main river. At this point, the larger boat becomes a burden. Over the years, hunters began stashing a smaller boat off the main river which was better suited to navigate the shallow water and timber so they could switch boats and continue on considerable distances up sloughs to their favorite spot. So the boats were dubbed "slough" boats since they were often left where a slough runs into the main river."
