Kayak Waterfowl Hunting

Fuzzy Guppies wrote 19 days ago:



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.

Throwdown #1 and #2 – 2016

Sorry for the late write up but I’ve been out of town. We had our first Hone Town Throwdown here in Idaho on June 24th. And our second Throwdown was last night, July 1st.

Trot ran our first HTTD as nobody from Boise could make it to cascade. Hwy 55 was closed due to an accident. So we figured a couple of locals from Cascade may show up since nobody from Boise would be able to make it up. Troy is living in Cascade, teaching at Kellys Whitewater Park so was already there. He texted me five minutes into the competition that 20 competitors showed up from the Cascade and McCall area!

Last night we had 12 paddlers and great weather for our Throwdown. The water levels shot up from 1,400 CDs to 2,100 CDs overnight and made for a flusher wave, but a few paddlers were able to dial it in and we had a great show from everyone. One of the surf instructors even jumped in the mix and had his first surf in a kayak :]

We had a great time at both Throwdowns and looking forward to our last two of the summer. If your in the area find us at Kellys Whitewater Park in Cascade, Idaho!

July 8th – 6PM
July 23rd – 1PM

Hometown Throwdown #1

natefry wrote 199 days ago:


Local boaters have been warming up in the pool this winter. To kick things off, our first hometown throwdown took place at the Paul Stock Aquatic Center. This event began with a short introduction of the competition layout and rules. Shortly after, the

Jake Skeen throwing some Class IV Cartwheels.

competitors were given thirty minutes to check off as many items as possible from the provided list of moves.

The moves ranged from turning a kayak (class I) to switching kayaks with a partner (Class V). While some moves appeared simple on paper, the actual execution proved to be quite the challenge. Only one participant was able to complete the move that required the competitor to stand up in their kayak while in the water, turn 360 degrees, and sit back down in their kayak.

Of the sixteen competitors participating in this event, there were three women, five youth, and eight men. The top three competitors in each category included:

Youth Female

Lucy (1st)

Youth Male

David (1st)

Hugh (2nd)

Alex (3rd)

Women

Jill (1st)

Billy (2nd)

Men

Jerod (1st)

Taylor (2nd)

Jake (3rd)
