Mark Rongers of Hobart, ..., 6 Nov 2009 [cached]
Mark Rongers of Hobart, Indiana, has hunted diving ducks and other waterfowl on the Great Lakes and surrounding waters for the past 27 years. He is also a cofounder and president of the Mighty Layout Boys, a manufacturer of layout boats, decoys, and other waterfowling products. His company designs layout boats with both safety and concealment in mind. "The paramount concern in layout hunting is safety because it's usually done on big water far from shore," Rongers advises. "But, for concealment purposes, a layout boat also has to have a low profile that doesn't cast a shadow. Ideally, the boat should be stealthy enough not to be seen by ducks on calm days, yet stable and safe enough for hunting on windy, choppy days when the birds often move best."
Like the majority of open-water layout gunners, Rongers specializes in hunting bluebills, redheads, canvasbacks, and other diving ducks, but he bags a variety of other waterfowl species as well.
Rongers also has developed layout tactics and equipment for hunting geese on open water.

Mark M. Rongers CEO and founding member of the MLB. Thirty years of duck hunting experience; started purchasing cork decoys and layout boats 25 years ago. Originator of the quote; "God has granted a Waterfowler only so many duck and goose seasons. He or she must use them wisely". Mark is a member of Delta Waterfowl, the NRA, and Ducks Unlimited, and currently serves on a DU chapter committee.
President of the Central Indiana Chapter; founding member of the MLB, Greg and Mark started hunting ducks together 30 years ago.
Began waterfowl hunting and pheasant hunting with Mark along the marshes near their neighborhood in the East Glen Park section of Gary, Indiana. His first double, killed from a layout boat over 24 seasons ago, was a banded Drake Greater Scaup and a Drake Redhead. He was immediately hooked. First member to carve cork decoys, and over the past 20 years he's made a most impressive rig of his own corks.
Future CEO of the MLB (he who has the most toys wins) and son of Mark M. Rongers, he's been around all aspects of Waterfowling since his birth 26 years ago. He could identify every species of Duck or Goose since he was 3 years old. He offered his talents as BB gun technician at age 8 when he accompanied the MLB on their weekend trips to Hutchins Lake in Fennville, Michigan, and shared a bunk with his dad at the cabin the MLB rented there from 1975 until 1987. He also stands to inherit arguably one of the largest collections of Waterfowling equipment ever assembled.
The thing Mark likes about him the best.. he'd rather hunt out of a layout boat on the Broadwater than hunt in a marsh any day.
