hunting from a pontoon raft

Has anybody had any experience with this? it would be for the yamhill mostly. Maybe some willamette. Just for floating up on ducks. im low on funds (fourteen years old) and having trouble securing a place to hunt. Thanks much.

I WOULD NOT RUN A PERSONAL PONTOON ON THE WILLAMETTE IN THE WINTER. IM SURE YOU COULD SNEAK UP ON SOME BIRDS BUT TO ME ITS A BIT RISKY. IF YOU COULD, I WOULD RUN IT IN A SLOUGH, POND, OR LAKE. THE ARE EASY TO CAMMO UP AND I DONT SEE WHY YOU COULDT SHOOT SOME BIRDS FROM ONE, BUT BOBBING DOWN THE RIVER DOESNT SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA.
