Gain all Access Mobility with Roundabout Woodsman

  Gain all Access Mobility with Roundabout Woodsman

By Craig Lamb

You are a waterfowler hunting solo with your prized retriever. Getting to the blind takes a four-wheel drive to pull through mud holes and keep on the two-track. Behind your truck is that aluminum jon boat. Launching that beast alone is a real hassle. Get it launched and you spend more time loading all the gear, a dog and yourself. All of the above is part of the fun, maybe, of hunting. That task can be made much more hassle-free by ditching the tin rig for a smaller, stable skiff that can fit in the pick-up truck bed.

The solution is made by Roundabout Watercrafts in Ruskin, Fla. The choice is Woodsman, a round skiff that is stable, compact and easy to load and unload. You spend less time getting ready for the hunt and more time in the blind. You can also hunt solo or add the optional 2-Seat Conversion Kit for a hunting partner. Best of all, you can be sitting in that blind once you climb into the boat. The wide beam spans 72 inches, the width of the Jon boat commonly used for getting to and from the blind. From stern to the tip of the boat the boat is just over 6 feet, offering plenty of deck space for a solo hunter, dog, and gear. What sets the Woodsman apart is the ability to shoot 360 degrees from inside the boat. That lessens movement needed to get into shooting position, making the boat ideal for hunting wood ducks and other waterfowl in tight squeezes around timber. blind

Concealment is easier since you can stay hidden until it comes time to shoot. Add an optional Ameristep Field Hunters Blind to simplify concealing the blind. You can store a blind bag and even more gear, from bulky items like outwear and waders, inside the three roomy storage compartments. Keeping all your gear organized, dry and within a hand’s reach is impossible in a long skiff. The boat can carry a lot of gear and in fact, has a weight capacity of 674 pounds before gear.   specifications

  The Woodsman comes in five optional packages to suit the needs of any hunter. The boats come with a camo finish. Package A is the basic setup with the boat, hatches, cleats, aluminum transom plate, 3/4-inch pedestal mount, and hinges. Cost is $1,095.
