I wanted to use my olive green Outback for duck hunting as well. Bought the camo spray dodger. What a joke. It was the most cumbersome thing to use. I also wouldn't have felt safe in that boat in winter.
I have one and think it's a pretty good winter accessory as well as "stealth" enhancer, so I don't see what the "joke" is. Granted, it can appear to be confining at first for some. It also takes a careful layout to get the best fit on some models since it's a generic fit. I haven't tried hunting with it, but hiding the leg motion is huge IMO if you want to get close to birds. If they're not distracted by mating or some other activity, they seem to be very sensitive to any unnatural movements nearby. Here are some pics of it with my not-so-camouflaged Adventureviewtopic.php?f=11&t=8260&p=40656
The great thing about the Mirage Drive kayaks is their ability to support a wide range of water activities. Sure, if you have the resources and space, you can buy a fishing boat, sail boat, duck boat etc. etc. that specialize in their respective tasks; to get this all with one boat is what makes Hobies unique. The Dodger fits well with that philosophy. Mine seems to be durable, versatile (you can even sail with it) and useful. It's a great accessory for cooler weather, photography and probably hunting as well. It would be nice to hear from someone who has actually hunting experience with it.
