Got back from the DU show in Oshkosh tonight, great show, tons of stuff to look at. Talked to Phil Robertson (aka "Duck Commander")what a cool guy!
Saw some boats that I liked, in particular, an Osage duck canoe, 14' long 5' wide. I'd put a 7.5 hp motor on it. http://www.osage-canoes.com
Thought it would be nice for solo hunting in some smaller places, it's a bit pricey though, $1500 for the boat alone. It would fit in the back of a standard bed pickup. I like the low profile & it appeared to be a very stable boat.
I am also leaning towards a scull boat made by The Duck Boat company. 16' long, low profile, 2 man boat. Has grassing rails for use as a boat/blind.
Last year I sold a one man layout boat, hunted Lake Michigan out of it a lot, great time but my Dad didn't like all of the work involved.
I currentley hunt out of either an 18' canoe or a 16' jon boat. I also have a 19' walleye boat, when I told my wife I was going to camo paint it for Lake Michigan she gave me a look that would have made Medussa turn away.
Do any of you hunt waterfowl out of anything other than a jon boat canoe, or v-hull boat?
