Old Town Pack Angler Canoe

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know who sells the Old Town Pack Angler canoe locally?

Even though Gander Mtn and Dick's Sporting Goods are listed on the Old Town HSOforum, neither one of them said they carried it when I called.

I'd really like to check this canoe out.

Thanks!

There was a private seller on the Metro hsolist Classifieds selling a like new used Oldtown lightweight pack model canoe for $450. Otherwise did you check the other sponsors here.

Hey Andy! I've been checking hsolist but didn't see the add you are referring to - I guess I better check again.

I guess I'm not sure of the sponsor you are referring to - Thorne Bros? If so, I have not checked them yet.

Thanks for the info!

Yeah I noticed that some classifieds dont show up at different locations or computers. Strange? You may not see certain ads or even your own post. But if you go to a buddys house like across town on his computer he see's them listed. You go home to check it again on yours and it's not listed. ???? Strange but true. I tried this several times.

Anyhow I will email you the direct hsolist classified link to make it easier. Check your email. If its valid it be a pretty good deal for you.

There is an OT Pack sitting on the showroom floor of the Eden Prairie Gander Mountian. I was there yesterday. I have the OT Discovery 13ft. It is just like the Pack only 10lbs heavier. You will like the Pack for its size and weight but it is for only one person.

How do you like it?

After seeing the Angler Pack (seat, anchor, storage bag), I might hold out for that one.

A small canoe is a bit too tippy for me. I don't fish out of it. For someone experienced at fishing out of a canoe, it is probably no worse than most canoes. I would look into the canoe stabilizer systems on the market if I was planning to seriously use it for fishing.

I use it for setting decoys and retrieving ducks on small water. It is very light weight for hauling around. I chose the Discovery over the Pack model because it was more durable for dragging around.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
