    Default Need new Duck Hunting Partner, Have a large square stern and the good spots

    My duck hunting buddy moved back home and we'd been hunting the same prime locations for about three years. I have a large square sterned canoe with a lift. I can go anywhere I need to. This is the time when the ducks start coming down south so I need to get on em. I would prefer someone that has calls and decoys. If you have a good set-up, shoot me a pm and maybe we can get out there. Here's a pick of my son and his freinds n I haulin a s s down rabbit slough. The boat is 17.5 ft. long, 44 inches wide, and I run a 9.8 tohatsu. We just pushed up 20 mile river recently too, quite a ways up.

    tailwind, why don't you and local member PG13 load up in the truck and come visit me for a long weekend next month - he doesn't want to make the trip alone and there are plenty of ducks for three up here... if you get here before it freezes (37 this morning, so it might not be very long)

    I never said I was scared to take the trip alone, just that I needed a good excuse to convince the wife that staying home with the kids while I went North was a good idea. Buy ya, road trip sounds awesome.

    If anybody has room, I'd like to go, too. I may not actually hunt, as I'm not able to find ammo for my guns, but I'd like to work the dog some. Also have AK Hunter Ed (FL too).

    I haven't done much duck hunting in Alaska, but I'm a fairly decent shot and I have a 20' go devil mud boat with a 35 hp go devil surface drive and a dozen decoys. I'm retired so my times to hunt are flexible and I'm open to travel. I'm short on places to hunt though. Give me a shout if I'd fit into your party.

    I appreciate folks wanting to hunt ducks with me but I won't be duck hunting this year too much. I may get a trip in though and I'll keep yah folks in mind. I still have a smaller royalex Esquif Cargo canoe but I'm lacking a 6.5 copperhead motor. My larger canoe is just too big to drag to my prime spots. I'm extremely busy this year and may get a chance after moose hunting season. Late season is the best time anyways as that's when the ducks come to my spots in good numbers.

    SkinnyD,
    How's the move going? You going to be ready to bust some birds in a few days? And if it freezes on us I'll bring a axe to brake it up.

    PG13,
    can't say your wife is like mine but if I tell her I'll be bring meat home to put in the freezer she's all for me going! Come up and join us and bring tailwind with you like SkinnyD said. After all, more guns means more birds right?!

    That's nine plus howevermany dangling off the other side. Amazing.

    I'm putting the finishing touches on the move today. Now I'm a resident of the famous (or infamous) North Pole community. Mostly I need to clean some more - I'm paid up in the old house for another couple of weeks though, so if any of you are good at getting mold off a wall, feel free to stop by and lend your expertise.

    Mainer, I was wandering if you wouldn't mind adding or sending some pictures of the lift for your motor? I finally came across a motor for mine and I need to make some sort of lift but not sure how. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Anyone wanna head up rabbit slough early tomorrow morning? I'm gonna take my freighter canoe and outboard out there and I could use an extra set of hands and some weight for the front of the boat.

    I applogize for not responding to this in a timely manner.

    PM me for a list of things you need. This lift design is stationary but adjustable. It's for shallow rivers, rocks, weeds, and mud/silt. The lift is in use on three canoes. Two of them are in use with moose hunters in fairbanks on my older canoes that I've sold. The other is in use by FamilyMan on his albany. Every canoe has special dimnesions and always requires custom fabrication. The other bennefits of this lift with an outboard motor is keeping your water pump grabbing clean water no matter how much mud/weeds gets blown out the back of the prop. If you should need help with the lift, I now have a working canoe fabrication shop. here is a link to one of the lifts:
