Re: Safety on the water. In reply to
Years ago I drew a blind at Bodie Island, NC, late in the season. We drove down from western PA, with a Sportspal Canoe atop my buddies SUV.

While we were near Kill Devil Hills, we got pulled over by a State Patrolman. He noticed our PA plates and inquired. "What do you intend to do with that canoe? Your not going to use it out on the sound are you?"

No sir was our reply. We are going to use it to take decoys out to the walk in blind and back, and that is it. He wished us well, and was on his way.

After our hunt at Bodie Island we hunted Currituck Sound, out of Grandy with a guide and did very well. We took ribbing from the other hunters and guides about the canoe atop our vehicle.

Having made yearly trips to NC for many seasons. My hunting partner and I always felt that big water always called for local knowledge, and proper vessels. Even so, we had some very trying times, when things got rough and the birds flew strong. Risk was always part of the hunt.

Ben - sorry to hear about the fate of your wife's cousin. May he rest in peace.
