I am going to be using my boat to get to my stand on a wma this weekend I have never done this before and was wondering if anybody on here does and if so is there anything I need to be aware of. I am new to the forum by the way.

Used my kayak before and will do it again. As said above you may not be able to get out where ya want do to steep muddy banks. Also log jams from time to time could be a problem etc. Depends a lot on the creek or river and water level.

On another WMA I know that boarders a lake, I know of people who used boats to get to Islands to pig hunt.


It ain't easy being me.
