Recently I read about guys duck hunting from his kayak and how it worked. The information was put together by a group of people on a blog about hunting. Kayaks and canoes are both recommended and have proven to be successful in the field. I think hunting from kayaks or canoes can be a great way to harvest ducks and will work great. Both are small personal boats that don't have a motor which means you have to row it. The good thing about that though is that you can travel very quietly through the water and not have to worry about scents or vibrations that can possibly scare away the animals you are hunting. Although they are slower than a motor boat they can go more places because they can travel in shallow water and through weeds or grass. You can also carry them because they are so light and aren't very big. The down side to them though is you lose a lot of stability in most of these boats, although they make some very sturdy they are also very expensive and heavy.
This is a very fun and exciting way to hunt ducks because of how close you get to them. If the ducks re sleeping you can almost touch them you get so close. I look forward to hunting out of a kayak and trying this new style of hunting. Kayaks and canoes are improving each year with new technology making them stronger, lighter, faster, and more stable. Although you can't cover as much area as a motorized boat you can go into places most people don't and get to the good ducks. This is form of hunting is very effective because you go to the ducks instead of wait for them to come to you. Although hunting this way works very good it can be dangerous too. If you get caught in heavy winds or a strong current it can pull your boat and move you out of place. Hunting from a kayak can be very fun and successful as long as you are safe and hunt hard.
