Grew up hunting private land, moved away for my job close to a big lake. Been here about 5 years and have acquired more private in this area. Initially thought I wanted to hunt the lake and I'm into bass fishing, so I bought this boat. Took my skeeter out for the first few hunts and the carpet got dirty. So this boat does well for both. But I don't hunt the lake anymore because it sucks, and I want a skeeter again.
