a small jon boat can be had for cheaper, can be powered by a trolling motor, much more stable, more weight carrying capacity, and hide almost as well.
This isn't always an option.
I have a beavertail phantom and it works great for what it is, also very stable. I don't hunt directly out of it, I usually sit on the cargo compartment with the rest in the cattails. I can throw it on the back of my truck w/o a problem and don't need a trailer. I also paddle out (and some WMAs you can't use a motor).
There are some kayaks more geared toward waterfowl hunting, I'd get one of those not a regular bright red kayak.
I also really like the looks of the creekboats (google it).
