Layout gunning is very effective but very dangerous without the right equipment, most importantly a large tender boat and an operator that knows what he's doing.
tis true, but in the Mid-west with no large waters like that and mostly marshes we think of layout boats like the 4-Rivers, Mo-marsh, Hunt-em and boats like that as layout boats, as they are used as a layout boat while hidden in flooded corn, smart weed, cattails, and any flooded marsh really where you can hide a boat in some vegetation. Also guys like myself who use the "marsh layout boat" as a mode of transport to spots some times, and blind to sit in on other hunts. So you can go alone or hunt with a buddy that has a boat too and motor or paddle to your spot in shallow water usually and then set up and hunt.
