It’s that time of year again, when most people start complaining about the change in the weather, the move away from shorts and t- shirts, and the beginning of the indoor season. But not hunters! For the hunter, this is the time of year when dusty gear comes out of storage to be cleaned and prepped, trips are discussed and planned, and hunting vehicles are excitedly packed.
There are many ways to go hunting, and we’ve tried them all. As we’ve mentioned before, hunters can choose to ride quad bikes or horses, walk on their own two feet, or drive motor vehicles or boats. Our favorite method is hunting by boat, and we’re here to tell you exactly why we love it so much. Hunting, contrary to most, is a sport that is always better with fewer people around. Animals are almost always afraid of people, and hunting requires a great deal of stealth to be successful. However, animals in wild, untouched areas where hunting on foot or by motor vehicle are difficult, tend to be less wary and easier to hunt, because they have had little experience of the danger humans bring.
Animals are also more accustomed to the danger coming from behind them while at the water, and their attention is focused on the bush, giving the boat hunter a further advantage. Since people prefer not to have to cross water, travelling by boat can give you access to areas seldom visited by other hunters.
Whether you want to hunt from your boat, or just use it as a means of transport to such an area, an inflatable boat is an excellent option. If you are considering buying a boat for hunting, our inflatable boats will cover all your needs. Inflatable boats are big enough for hunting large animals, yet lightweight, making them easy to load and launch, even on difficult terrain. When traveling in an inflatable boat, rough patches of the river can be easily maneuvered through or around, and these boats can be safely parked on rough or rocky riverbanks in order to hunt on foot or load hunted game.
Our inflatable boats are easily adapted to any situation. Are you trying to get some distance between yourself and any other hunters in the area? Just fire up the engine and shoot upriver. Trying to get closer to an animal without scaring it away? Simply shut off the engine and paddle. Despite its lightness and maneuverability, an inflatable boat is very stable on the water, both loaded and empty, and will easily handle the recoil of a shot from a rifle.
On top of all of this, our boats are the perfect size to offer enough storage space for all your gear, as well as the results of your successful hunt.
Happy hunting !
