A Kayak can be hard to get in and out of unless you are in shallow hard bottom where you can put a leg out on either side and push yourself up with your hands. A canoe is easier to get in and out of, haul a greater load (whole deer or bags of decoys)and take a partner if you want. I harvested rice, hunted and trapped all over northern MN and WI for years out of one. I use less decoys now and hunt alone most of the time and have gone to a Marshrat that I converted to use a motor and oars, small, handy, very stable and works for a layout blind.
My hunting kayak, camo cover reverses to white for snow conditions, I usually stay in the kayak and pull along the shore or in cover to hunt.
Marshrat, motor shown was too much for the boat, too heavy and too powerful. An electric trolling motor worked well but have gone to an outboard made from a weed eater.
