The new Jackson Kayak Real Tree Kilroy test run was a success. It’s getting cold up here in Vermont but the new Kilroy, Realtree edition arrived in time before freeze up. We hit the home territory of the Missisquoi Wildlife Refuge on the Canadian border. As usual, we tossed the JK inside my duck boat with 25 HP motor and made the 5 mile trip up river. Slid the new Kilroy out and back into the swamp we paddled. We found the wild rice and the hunt ensued, the difference, this time we took our friends retriever, a black lab named Argo.
Kilroy test report: paddled 1.5 miles into the swamp with ease, incredibly stable having to stand to get out and pull over a beaver dam, stable enough to pull up the lab after a retrieve, fit 2 dozen decoys in the decoy compartment/bag, slid the shotgun into the fishing rod holder, and the Realtree camo cover blended in great. All in all, could not have asked for a better test run.
