This week’s kayak duck hunting trip

By Chris Henderson

 

Hunt was a bit more sporty this week in that my shooting was off and I ended up winging some birds. The big problem with that is that it results in water swats. In the spot I am hunting you are limited to 25 shells. Although I do not believe many adhere to this rule, I do. So spending a bunch of shells on water swats and a particularly crafty wigeon which was probably eaten by the seals, I came down to my last four shells with 2 birds to go. Got one with two shots, and only had two shots left. After shooting them I thought I would be foiled in my quest to get a limit. So I searched my box and then found one more live shell in my pocket! I let the bird come all the way in with feet down before I smacked him. That 25 shell limit did make it much more sporting I will tell you that. Wigeon will often come in with no calling necessary, but today the wigeon whistle proved it’s worth turning a few birds and bringing them all the way in. Torrie is improving with each trip.

Of course the W700 hunting kayak was solid as ever!

Enjoy

 

 

 

 

Duck hunting with my retriever and Wavewalk 700 hunting kayak

By Chris Henderson

 

A solid day on the mud flats.
Torrie, my retriever, improved over last time, and is starting to get this game figured out. Some work to do to finish the retrieves, but we will get there! She has not had a lot of practice with the whole transition from water to land holding the bird.
Can’t beat the weather or the birds! Wigeon whistle worked like a charm.

2018-19 duck hunting season opening with the Wavewalk 700 kayak

By Chris Henderson

 

Went to my little lake where I was the only one hunting. Not much of a flight to speak of but had a couple of opportunities. Eagles are back and ready to be fed, if you can’t paddle fast enough and retrieve the ducks.

 

Wavewalk S4 in the new Gator Drab Green color

Here are some images that show the S4 in the new Gator Drab Green color.
This color and similar ones are popular among Jon boat users, since it blends well with the surroundings in inland fisheries, and it serves as a good base for camouflage.
Duck hunters will be interested in it as well, for similar reasons.

On lakes and slow moving rivers, marshes and flats, and whether it is paddled with kayak or canoe paddles, or outfitted with outboard motors and mud motors, if you’re able to see this boat, it will look good anywhere.
