boat hunting in open water
 
Does anyone here hunt without a blind? I have a 14ft lowe that is sorta camo painted. But do not have a blind. A long time ago we used to hunt like this in the coves in the Cheasapeake bay. I remember the birds flareing alot. In the past few years, I have been hunting out of a bank blind, or my buddy had a avery on his Jon. But he sold it, so I figured I would use my boat.

Unless it is a very low profile boat. I think you are not going to fare to well! Just make a blind. The cost for a useable blind for your boat should not be expensive at all.

Well, we have 3-4 weeks left. That sounds like a great idea for next year. But looking to go out this year.

I don't think you would do very well in a open boat. If I was in that situation I would get on the bank and cut some brush and take some zipties and add it to the the boat as good as possible filling the inside of it, standing it up on the sides of the boat and all around me where I was going to sit in the boat.

That's the way we use to hunt but finally realised a blind was the way to go try a Wileys Flex Blind they are way cheaper than the Avery and you can use it so many different ways.

Are you hunting divers? they arent the smartest birds around! If youve got some fast grass or something similar,, figure a waytoo lay it across the top of the boat and hanging over the sides.. Im sure youll get some shooting if you could figure a way too set something like that up.

Actually we hunted scoters and divers from a white center console before. But this is mostly buffles, bluebills, and mallards.

I wonder if I can get some camo burlap and just lay it across us? I was wanting to go out a few times this week, but am sick as a dog right now.
