Duck hunting can also mean the use of boats. Storing and protecting duck hunting supplies in a boat often necessitates using a lot of little containers and bags. Gear must be kept dry and secure while on-board. At the same time, hunting from a boat exposes you to damp and cold conditions.

Using a lot of gear in an environment full of water, mud and brush and hunting in tight confines with other people increases the odds of misplacing or losing your duck hunting supplies.
