Maybe I posted this before, but this is my one and only.

I've always got extra room. I don't need to be a great shot. Never have to clean birds. Ammo is a bit pricey though.

No rig pics here. Imagine a aluminum canoe or a 16' Lund with camo burlap draped over the sides.

It got used twice for ducks, more for fish. This year it was mostly walk in hunts, field hunts, and then suicidal_scaup, doubletheshovel, and firefighter toured me around a couple times in their rigs. :thumbsup:

Here is what I had to work with last season. All walk-in hunts and my partner didn't do much heavy lifting of decoys lol. I'm hoping to add a boat this spring. Either a 14' or 16'. Kinda depends what deals are out there.Image

1436 jon boat w/ cabelas blind frame. The blind's been modified so the back side sits higher. Sneaky boat that's treated me well, but I want a surface drive bad. Hopefully a new rig will be in store for 2015....gotta buy a house this year first. Then ice castle.... :tongue:

Here's mine. Modified 4x8 trailer holds everything I need for early season. The 12' boat on the side fits on the top rack also so it gives me lots of options. The toolbox is waterproof and bolted onto the front which is super nice for little odds and ends. I love this little trailer!
