You do need a boat, but not a john boat. Many guys, including myself, hunt these spots with canoes and electric motors. I prefer this as it is easier, and quieter. I/we have a system so that when I get my canoe to my spot I can stabilize it so it don't tip over. It takes some practice but works damn well!

You can hunt Stillwater successfully without a boat if you're willing to hoof it a little. A lot of guys use jons and mud motors, but a kayak or canoe and an electric motor or a paddle will get you pretty much anywhere. Some of the ponds you cannot use motors of any type and some you can't even use a boat. It can be a good place to hunt but you have to work it. Scouting is imperative.

Ive hunted for 3 years now without a boat it is not necessary but common sense says it will increase opportunies. Being from South Dakota you are probably not going to see the numbers you are used to say as everyone else says hard work and time will pay off. I welcome you out this way and hope you enjoy it

canoes, kayaks, or aquapods are your best bet at greenhead, but ive had a lot of successful duck hunts by walking and laying in a pull sled.

Generally, the farther you get from the parking lots and dikes, the better the hunting is.
Walking in the alkalie mud is the pits...............and not for those out of shape or with a bad heart.
A boat and a dog are always a big PLUS !!
