first of all, I love this site...you guys crack me up!
If you read my Bio you are aware I'm trying to figure out how to successfully hunt the Missouri river out of Great Falls. I moved from SW montana and have only hunted puddle ducks with an occaional field hunt. I have had some good luck recently with Geese and some Ducks on the river, however I do need your advise on a couple things....
1. Boat Advise!!!! I have a 14' lowe jon boat with a powerful
6 horse prop outboard! I have had some serious adventures in the last couple weeks from hardly moving upstream at a total snails pace against the current and 50 mph winds with two hunters a dog, deeks and two limits of geese and some ducks thrown in for good measure to the many times I have ran aground with the prop and had to Lewis & Clark my boat upstream for way to far...
So... I am under the impression I need a new boat or at the very least a much bigger outboard... I would like to hear what you guys would reccomend for river hunting around these parts. I would like to be able to fish out of this boat in the summer as well. Do I go Jet or longtail and how big of a boat??
2. anyone have any really good goose Recipies??
Any advise, comments, suggestions you can give me would be greatly appreciated.... !
