Kayak for Hunting

Postby JeepKuntry » Mon Feb 06, 2017 12:30 pm

Any suggestions? I would like to find a decent kayak that doesn't break the bank. I would need one big enough to haul weapon and climbing stand in.

I think Nucanoe has some models that might fit your needs. Very well built boats.

Canoe or small jon boat. Kayaks can't haul a load well because the deck raises the center of gravity. Where would the deer go?

Sit on tops don't have a deck, your thinking of sit in. I can walk around on my kayak. Hauling a deer wouldn't be problem but there a models better suited than the one I have.

Catchdawg what kinda kayak do you have? I was hoping to stay under $500. Nucanoe was a grand and didn't even have a seat.

Mine is a Ascend fs12t. It cost a little more than what your wanting to spend but not much. You also might want to check out a Madriver Adventure. It's a canoe/kayak hybrid and can be had at a decent price.

I have been looking at those. My biggest struggle is finding something that I can carry. Obviously a canoe would be cheaper. But loading/unloading with 1 person would not be easy. Some also weigh around 100lbs. I have 1 spot that I will have to carry 400-500 yards before I reach the lake access.
