Ok so lets start with a little info. Grew up in North Dakota our duck hunting is lets just say different than here in minnesota. My son just finished his hunter saftey and we are looking to get out and do some duck hunting this fall. Just picked up a Lowe 1448 with a 25hp Yamaha on it... I think this may be a little small for 2 guys and a dog. Thoughts??? Also looking for any advise on where to hunt. Not looking to for peoples hot spots, but just somewhere we can get to decoy some birds in so he gets hooked!! Live in Oak Grove Mn north of the twin cities. Also if there is anyone that would like some new hunting partners let me know.
