Default Anyone using a Porta-bote to hunt?

On my second one and the new design is very much superior. I have it set up with a quick construct duck blind when the situation works for it. I have found them extremely stable for crossing open water. Had the old one develop a crack and fill with water but stay buoyant. Was like rowing a soggy log but dog, goose and I made it to shore none the worse for wear. The new ones have flat stern that I think takes care of the issue where the crack developed. mine is a 12' and seems heavier than the old ones or maybe it is the age difference. First one lasted nearly 30 years.

Will try to get the blind set up and post some pics if anyone is curious on a ten minute from boat to blind. If you hunt alone with a dog it is perfect. Two hunters and dog it is a bit small but still doable if you both shoot from the sitting position.
