Let's preface this post... New to waterfowl hunting, but not boating. Looking to purchase a boat for my son, dog and I to use for waterfowl. I have seen the budget conscious model like a Lowe up to the fancy Prodigy boats. I am not sure what style of boat to buy... We are on lease that has spots in MD & DE. The majority of the time the boat will be use to go up the rivers, etc to get to the blind and not so much to hunt out of. Do I need a side console, center console or a plain old tiller style? Do I need a boat that has the pods on the rear? I was thinking something in the 16-16 foot range would be the correct size? Any advice or things to think about would be helpful.
