I am looking to do a spring black bear hunt in the sound and know that having a zodiac with a small outboard is best. In the interest of making the hunt more challenging I was thinking of bringing my canoe and just combing the beaches close to shore (~20-30' offshore).
My questions are:
1. Is there any place to rent a zodiac or are there outfitters that could set you up with one? I will be doing an unguided hunt.
2. Would the canoe theory be feasible? Or is it common for the weather to be so bad that you couldn't do this type of hunt?
Thanks for the help!
