I have an Ocean Kayak Endeavor (Prowler 13) I hardly ever use. It’s a little heavy at 56 lbs but has a weight capacity of 450lbs. It was $600 when I bought probably 10 years ago. They are by no means the cheapest but it’s a total package that will handle about everything from open water fishing to hauling a fat buck down a stream.

Ascend h12. It’s probably too wide and doesn’t cut through the water very well. I added a trolling motor to it last year and it helps a ton.

Question for those of you using a sit-on-top kayak: from the looks of it, there appears to be enough room for one paddler (you) and your gear. Where would you put the deer? Quarter it and set it on top? Tow it behind? Use an inflatable whatnot and float it out?

I use a canoe, plenty of room for gear and carcass.

No sponsors. No camera crew. No team. Just me and my bow. And that’s the way I prefer it.

Mine I have enough room for my gear behind me. Have a bow holder mounted on the side. And will just lay a deer between my feet, head as far forward as I can get it. Don’t really care about comfort by then.

Frontier 12 is great. Not the most affordable. I believe they told me 75ish pounds when I bought mine but with seat, gear its well over 100lbs. I use mine most for fishing. I would say whatever one you buy get a good cart for it. makes all the difference in the world.

Makes sense. My solo canoe is 12’ long and weighs 33 pounds. Lightweight and roomy. Have thought about a kayak before, like what I got!
