Has anybody used a sit on top kayak for duck hunting? Thinking about doing a little work on mine and using it to get into public land.

Yup! I use mine. I posted a pic of me standing up paddling it with my dog and his blind in it as well. Works great for getting into some areas faster and easier than carrying all of your gear.

Couple of my favorites from last year.

Could have shot 20 limits of mallards this morning. Had our 20 greenheads and 4 pintail in about 30 minutes and then sat there and watched them land in the decoys for 2 more hours.

And then broke my 3 year band drought on the second to last weekend of the season. Decided to make a last minute trip to OK while everything up there was locked up but we thought when it thawed it might be incredible and it didnít disappoint.

What do you use for camo for the boat? Do you actually hunt from the boat or do you set up on the bank?

Here's our yaks, once season rolls around they'll be duck killing machines. Most of the places we hunt will just be used as transportation and covered in camo burlap.

Don't have any places where well need to hunt from them

He loves water! He hops in and swims around with the labs and does all the same water work the labs do. He was a little unsure last year about the real cold water but he was still just pup, just a year and a half old. He also didnít like big open swimming water where there wasnít a bank close by. Theyíve been working on that a lot this off season so I donít think it will be a problem anymore!

Starting to get ready but this year has been really busy. Drew a couple spots to hunt and scouted them out. Looks good just need about two feet of water by season. Going to try some new places this year but with our son due in October going to have to stay pretty close to home. Come on rain.

Love looking through everybody's pictures. I used to be pretty mad at the ducks down on the coast but haven't made a hunt since moving to West Texas 4+ years ago. Pretty sure my dog hates me now! Some of my best hunting memories involve my brother/good buddies, a duck blind, cold beer, trash talking, and some awesome sunsets on the coast. Unfortunately I don't have many pics on this phone

Do you ever go out and scout?

Buddy of mine said he's gotten reports of good number of teal in west Texas.

Unfortunately I don't.

From what I've seen passing by in past years, if you have a decent sized body of water it'll hold birds though. Just haven't had much time to focus on it.

Oh, and tons of Sandhills around Big Spring. It can be unbelievable at times.

I've killed a lot of ducks out on mad Island but usually the most on days where your not going to kill them on the main land. If the fishing boats are going you will kill your limits. If no boats are going you won't.

Whistle, High Roller, and gadwall drake 95% of the time.

Two of my favorite sounds of duck season are hearing guys throw hail calls and feed calls across the open bay, and then hearing about a 15 shot volley followed by...DRAKE!....DAMMIT DRAKE NO BIRD.....GET BACK HERE DRAKE!

Drove back from Colorado yesterday. Saw some decent numbers of birds up in north Texas but not much happening down this way from the limited areas I could see from the road.

We use ours but don't usually hunt from them. We haul our stuff in two kayaks and pull a sled behind each. Set up in water and hide the yaks in the reeds. If you're hunting public,allow a couple extra hours to beat the jon boat guys.

My ride 135 is bright orange. I use a combination of weathered burlap and walmart nylon camo netting that I have touched up with some flat brown and green paint plus natural material. We have made burlap covers that we can sit on the yak and cover everything. I would rather hunt from a stool in the water or a layout blind. I don't like having to worry about balance. We have lashed our to yaks together and that provided more support but it's just one more thing to get done in the morning. Build you blind, plant stools and shove the yaks in the reeds. The only time I wished I had a camo yak is when I had to retrieve birds in the muddy bottoms.

Since I am not going to be able to be on a deer lease this year, I will be focusing on duck hunting a lot more. Just upgraded the decoy spread this week. Now I just have to get new waders to replace the ones with a leak. Hoping to get out for some teal birds

Saw my fist group of teal, about 20, in my area yesterday. Just can't hunt the lake they were on. But it is encouraging for Saturday.

Deeks have been pulled out of storage.

Tomorrow will be an examination to see if any repairs are needed, eg, new string and sinkers.

Possibly adding some Academy brand BWT so I can have more hens then drakes in the spread for Saturday.

Yes, its early Teal. The time we've been given to get all the duck gear ready for the season.

Good luck to everyone going. Be safe and don't take risks in the weather.

Hopefully its just rain and that's it.

Not sure if its been mentioned in this post yet but for early teal we run a bunch of big duck hens in with our teal to keep from having to buy so many teal decoys. Usually we wont even bring any teal drakes since none of the drakes are in full plume yet anyways.
