Let me start out that I’m an avid kayak fisherman. I’d rather fish out of a kayak than a motor boat any day. I’m also an avid duck hunter, and wanted to do some duck hunting out of a kayak. Beginning of this year I was looking for a kayak that was wide enough for standup fishing, and also comfortable enough to do some duck hunting out of. I immediately fell in love with the Diablo Adios. Its very comfortable with the high seating and its also 36 inches wide. I could walk from tip to tip on this kayak, and I knew that this would accomplish both my needs.
I’ve been duck hunting for over 30 years now, but always out of an airboat, jon boat, or canoe. This year I decided to venture and do some duck hunting out of the kayak. I’ve had some of my more memorable hunts this year from the kayak. Its been very peaceful, remote, comfortable, and productive. My lab “Bailey” has also joined me on my kayak duck hunting adventures. I sit him right in the front without a problem.
I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m sure I’ll be doing some “Cast and Blast” trips in the future. This goes to show that a kayak can also be a hunting machine, and hopefully this write up will get some of you duck hunters out on your kayaks during hunting season. Happy Hunting/Fishing!!!!
