Any of you guys use a boat to get to that favorite hunting spot away from all the people. Thinking about getting a boat I can use for deer hunting. I had a 13ft Boston Whaler that I never should have sold. Wanting to get something older and that I can pull up along the bank. A canoe is out of the question. I want something I can get me and a friend in with our gear.

i'm still with the pontoon if youre on a large lake as you are talking about...get the camper version and you can dock it right where you want to hunt and sleep there that night and even have some poles out for catfish...most come with a barbecue on them too...if you want to hunt another area,pull the anchor untie fire up the moter and sail away to another destination...theres even room for several buddies and you can cut deer up on deck and use guts for catfish bait...this is how i always planned on doing it if i ever hunted where theres a big lake...it could be called deer camp pontoon...:biggrin:and you can always tow a canoe if you want pics...

I never considered this but it's a great idea if your spot is near water. Could be very quiet coming in and leave a minimum of scent.

I know of a spot at Salt Fork that my buddy has paddled into the past several years- the back side of a huge ridge along the lake. All the guys hunting this area that come in off the access road just push the deer right to him. He's had great success. He canoe's in. ;)

Well I still haven't bought a hunting boat yet. But I have warmed up to the idea of a canoe. Some of the weight capacities are pretty impressive. I am looking at a 15ft with a 750 pound capacity. Some people run trolling motors on the back. The other advantage would be not having to tow a trailer.
