Water access has its advantages and is a form of access I’ve tried to use as often as possible the past few seasons. In high pressured states, water access is a way to separate from the crowds. Or keep a few prime places as clean as possible to get multiple good hunts from the same location. Loading and unloading, kayaking in etc. can add more time and effort to your hunts (and if I’m being honest…it can be a pain in the ass) but it can be well worth the effort! Here’s the setup I’ve been using and has served me well the past two years.
