    What in the heck is that contraption at the 6-second mark of your video?
    A mud buggy?

    I'd missed that mention of an important blind rule on the first pass but just caught it as a quote. It's also long been one of mine when working with groups, and one, perhaps interesting, example has stood out. Was hunting group of corporate chieftains from a large conglomerate with state subsidiaries when someone had to take a leak, and upon getting us all out of the pit and lined up on the levee to negate future such needs, I noticed that the conglomerate's head man was about to try peeing into a stiff wind and warned him of it. At which point the fellow in charge of their Mississippi subsidiary cracked us all up with, "He can do that, he's the President."

    Ideally I'd have 6 bearers to carry me on a shield out to the blind where 6 beautiful Indian "guides" await to be de-flowered. Might even shoot a duck.

    No those were some pneumatic tires we got to try and help drag the Wavewalk S4 with the mud motor on it across the mudflats. Worked kind of. So back in the scrap heap of "I wonder if this would work" as we are constantly trying to figure out ways to hunt those flats. :)

    Mostly field hunting geese, sometimes mallards. I usually can hunt within 3 or 4 miles of the house so that's nice. This year with the drought conditions it might be completely different though

    Would an Argo with tracks work?

    Probobly not well but it might. I don't know if they would let you use it on the area I hunt.

    Hunting a mud flat is tough I hunt in a mud flat.
    You can't walk you sort of sit on the bow of the boat and waddle it around otherwise exhaustion sets in.
    Sound fun?
