NuCanoe kayaks combines superior stability, a spacious design, great on-water performance, and multiple motor options to create a stealth hunting platform. From accessing hard to reach areas to transporting decoys, dogs, & gear to hauling out your buck, a NuCanoe kayak will UNLIMIT your hunt. And when the hunting season ends, take off the blind & decoys and you have an awesome fishing kayak!  Only in a NuCanoe…

Why Hunt in a NuCanoe?

Access Hard to Reach Areas – NuCanoe kayaks require only 4″ of depth and 40″ of width to move through the water.  It can launch where other waterfowl boats can’t.  It can get to the areas that other hunters can’t go.

Safe in Harsh Conditions – Safety is paramount in harsh winter hunting conditions.  NuCanoe kayaks are super stable and can easily be re-entered from the water, meaning you’ll always be safe.

Hunting Versatility –  A customizable, open deck lets you adapt to your hunting environment and conditions with the Layout Blind, Upright Blind, or your own custom camo.

Room for Dogs, Decoys, & Gear – Wide, open decks provides ample room for your dogs, decoys, and gear.

Confidence Inspiring Stability – Ridiculous stability provides confidence:  for shooting straight ahead or to the sides;  for deploying and retrieving decoys; and for dogs jumping into the water and climbing back in the boat.

Ideal Concealment – Bow-to-stern duck blinds provide concealment, and vegetation straps allow you to fully blend into your hunting environment.

Motor-Ready – Don’t want to paddle?  Add a transom or bow mount motor to get to your hunting spot with ease.

Year Round Potential – Unlike most waterfowl-specific boats, your NuCanoe can be used all year long.

How to Beat the Crowds in the Public-Land Whitetail Woods

Brodie Swisher of bowhunting.com – July 13, 2021

I also use a kayak or boat to slip into hard-to-reach places (and sometimes throw the bike in the boat if I need to go in further once I’m ashore). There are a lot of public venues that are a mix of lakes and islands and large tracts of land. A majority of hunters are going to stick to those big parcels, but you can certainly find deer in places that require a boat ride…

You won’t find squirrels in the treetops cutting on hickory nuts just yet. Rather, they’ll be feeding on soft mast food sources, buds, berries, or on the ground, searching for leftover nuts.

When you’re hunting near water access, there’s no better way to get your deer out of the woods than by boat. Loading-hauling kayaks are the perfect option as they allow you to get into some of the tightest hunting spots, via shallow water entry, yet can haul some impressive loads.

The NuCanoe Unlimited and Nucanoe Frontier 12 can handle loads over 600 pounds, easily floating you and your gear, as well as a deer – or two. Read More

5 Tips for Hunting from a Kayak

Parker McDonald of Southern Ground Hunting – July 29, 2020

When I first started using a kayak to hunt, there was practically zero information online about it. I searched and searched, and often came up empty handed with the exception of a few duck hunting articles. It made it very difficult to prepare for my first season of kayak hunting when there weren’t really any experts offering advice. For me, everything was learned solely by experience in the field, or I guess… on the water. These days it seems there’s been an uptick in interest. A few “die hards” have learned that this is an incredibly effective way to get to unpressured areas, and it’s piqued the interest of people across the country. Luckily, new kayak hunters now have a fair amount of content to consume to help them get into the game of hunting with a kayak. That being said, I want to share with you five tips from things I have learned throughout the years of successfully hunting from a kayak. I hope this helps you in your preparations, and maybe gets you one step closer to paddling out that big buck! Read More
