Waterfowl boat question

Postby Naterdashotgunner » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:23 pm

I live in central Kentucky, and was just wondering if you all think it is worth it to have a boat? I am willing to travel to the surrounding lakes/rivers and scout/hunt, plus maybe a few times a year take a trip out to Western KY/Southern IL. As of now we mostly just hunt farm ponds and corn fields with some success but was thinking a boat might open up some other options. Also what kind of boat would you all suggest getting for these areas?

Thanks,
Nate

1654 with an 18hp and a blind here... And I live in Lexington. Opens up a lot more options, especially if it ever gets cold enough to freeze up the farm ponds

Sugar is a mythical place, with unicorns and sugar plum ferries. It's a majestic place. I mean moth8rf^@king majestic. Like a bald eagle getting a hand job from the statue of liberty herself.

1860 Grizzly w/ Beavertail Blind ... works great for 3 hunters, but you have to hunt the larger rivers because of it's size. If I were doing it all over, I'd buy a very low profile jon boat, put a small, quiet 15hp 4-stroke engine on it, and a very low profile blind. You could only hunt two, but how many "best" hunting buddies do you really need to take ? The rivers are amazing when the farm ponds are frozen - especially over near LBL ....
