In keeping with the product release theme, another new offering this year from Jackson Kayak will be a Realtree edition Kilroy.  This boat comes loaded with features that all hunters will enjoy, but I see it being especially useful for my duck hunting friends.

“The Realtree Edition Kilroy comes with features specifically designed with the waterfowler’s needs in mind, including custom Realtree Max-5 camouflage boat graphics by CamoWraps, and these other Realtree Max-5 features:

• Soft Deck with large pocket for storage of the fitted blind system, ammo, calls, headlamps and any other items requiring quick access,

• Fitted Blind System that allows you to convert the boat to a mobile layout duck blind, sporting zippered panels to allow access to gear, space for a dog, and other smaller openings to access the YakAttack gear tracks for use of RAM or other accessories,

• Removable Decoy Bag that stores securely behind the seat and comes with a shoulder sling for easy carrying out of the boat,

• Slip-on Seat Cover to conceal the seat when the hunter is not in the boat or just protect the seat from muddy paw prints.

Ideal for a wide range of sportsmen and women from 120 – 250 pounds the Realtree Edition Kilroy is made of incredibly durable and abuse-resistant rotomolded polyethylene. The kayak weighs 69 pounds and has a recommended load capacity of a beefy 375 pounds. MSRP is $1799.

The Realtree Edition Kilroy will debut to sporting goods buyers at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City Aug. 4 – 9.”

This is an ideal boat for the Louisiana sportsman – think of it as an improved pirogue.  Imagine going on a duck hunt in the morning, then spending the afternoon stalking redfish – the perfect cast and blast.  Very cool to see Jackson recognize that it is not just fishermen out there that can benefit from the use of a kayak.  All sportsmen can take their hobbies to the next level, what a great boat for those wanting to do so.
