Wildfowl's Best Mud Motors

Wildfowl's Best Mud Motors

There's no substitute for skimming across the water in a real duck boat, complete with a bad-ass mud motor jutting off the transom. Tow that sweet rig past any club and watch tongues wag the retrievers too!

If you have access to a boat and a high-power mud motor, then you know the benefits: getting to remote locations is easy and blind-hopping can be done with a pull of a cord or press of a button. Sea ducks don't stand a chance against open-water 25-foot rigs, just to name a few reasons to believe.

A good outboard or long-tail motor can quickly get you to any destination where ducks are flying unless you hunt a cut cornfield, of course. But if you're a waterman, here are some of the best motors money can buy.
