Do any of you use a sled to get decoys and gear into a marsh. If so what sled would you recommend?

Yep:

http://www.rapala.com/otter/sleds/pro-sled/Pro+Sled.html?start=1&cgid=otter-sleds

Works great. Also good for dragging deer.

You can get smaller versions that are still pretty handy for about $60 or above version for about $130 at Cabelas.

Yeah I dunno..

I use the little beavertail sled, over grass/water/cold ground it's great. Gets a little heavy in the mud though.

Mud and sand are the anti-Christ of sleds though!

Do the sleds float or drag bottom?

It can be a little tough on sand, I find they slide really well over soft mud. Either way it beats carrying all those decoys. I used to fill my sled to the top with about 4 dozen decoys and then put a sack with another 4 dozen on top of it and bungee it down. Way easier to drag that across mud/sand especially when there is an inch or two of water than it is to carry it over your back along with gun and ammo.

When hunting open water, I used to put my ammo box in the first sled with loose decoys and sack and then tie a second sled to my ammo box and pull another 8 dozen behind it. Easy way to transport 16 dozen decoys across 1/4 mile of mudflat without wearing myself out.

I've got the Beavertail sled with bag. I can tow it behing my kayak with 4 dozen decoys. It's an awesome sled well worth the money.

mine will float 3 doz deks a gun, blind bag and dog stand just fine... Dragging it in the water is the best way to go! That way you don't have all that gear weighing you down and if you fall, all your gear isn't soaked/lost
