Not from it as much as I have used it to haul gear and get to the other side of marshes. I never felt comfortable shooting from mine.

Hunting from Kayak

Postby Jay Jolicoeur » Mon Nov 28, 2005 6:13 pm

I have a little. I have two Winderness System Tandems. My wife sewed covers for them and they look good. You can go a lot of places you can't go with a boat. I could carry decoys, even a dog if I wanted. There are a lot of benefits. You can't cover as much ground, but if you have done your scouting with a boat and can put in close by there is a lot of value. The negative is if you shot sideways the recoil can test your balance. We had a mishap during teal season in September my Father-in-Law rolled his with my 4 year old son. I am thinking about carrying the kayaks in my boat and using them to manuver around were I set up to put out decoys, and move around if necessary. You have much more stealth where you can slip up on birds that you couldn't in a boat. :smile:
