Hello all, I have a question on using a Cat in low water. How much water do you need to float a Cat the size of Aire's Leopard? I was floating a river moose hunting in Sept and I came on a pair of guys who had hunted this particular river for many years. They had a Leopard and were kind of smirking as I pulled up in my raft. They asked how it was handling the low water. I then asked about the Leopard and they stated they only needed about 4-5 inches when loaded with a moose, and a bit more when they had 2 moose loaded.
I don't have any experience with cats, but it seems most discussions here and what I have read in the past indicate that you need deep water to use a cat.
Any help you can give will be much appreciated.
