Kayak Waterfowl Hunting

With the draw down of the kayak bass fishing tournament season comes a new season, waterfowl. While most outdoors men and women are focused in on deer hunting and preparing for ice fishing season here in the Northeast, there is still much more kayak fun to be had!

It was only a few short months ago that I was introduced to waterfowl hunting, and it has been a very exciting experience from the beginning! While fishing I find myself focused in on small events of my trip, a laid down log, Lilly pads, or a chunk of matted grass or weeds. Well, duck hunting is different. My very first morning I paddled across a rather shallow portion of the south end of one of the smaller Finger Lakes and set out my decoys in anticipation of low flying birds willing to commit to my spread. As I set patiently waiting for the big moon to set and the orange skies to lift, I couldn’t help but be taken in by nature’s beauty first hand. I didn’t fire my gun that morning but the scenery was worth all the while.

Kayaks offer the ability to get where most can’t by wading and others can’t by boat. It’s a perfect match for duck hunting. I utilize the NuCanoe Classic outfitted with their signature Duck Blind. The Classic has enough room to store your favorite shotgun, over 36 decoys, a bag lunch and drink and still sit comfortably for hours on end. The blind offers great concealment from all sides as well as good cover from the winds we so often encounter.

If you’re a duck hunter without a kayak, you’re missing out! If you are looking for additional water time in the later months when fishing tournaments have ended, look no further. Try your hand at waterfowl! Not only will you get more water time and scenic adventures but the bounty is a delicious incentive to the sport.
