Kayak/Canoe stabilizing mud/swamp poles

Does anyone hunt swamps in canoes or kayaks if so, what do you use to stabilize yourselves to shoot a 360 degree radius?

RE stabilizing the canoe

Postby atp » Thu Sep 30, 2004 6:22 pm

We used to hunt the marshes in Manitoba--Lebeau in lake Winnipeg--and The portage marshes in Lake Manitoba.

We would tie to the catails and reeds or use the paddles driven into the mud and tie to that--seemed to hold just fine.

At one time we also made out riggers for the canoe--they would fold up when not used.Worked fine for shooting, but was a darn nuiscence when paddling!

The newest thing is to use a fishing belly boat--we use that out west here and it is the safest shooting platform I have shot from!!Easy to retrieve the birds if you have no dog. A very stable platform with a low center of gravity!

Anyone any other suggestions??

We are located in Vancouver,BC
