There is nothing wrong in starting early planning/learning how to hunt with a canoe.
Good time to find the right PFD that you can shoot with.
I have enjoyed many wonderful hunts jump shooting small rivers.
Corners, sneak in close to shore on the corners and be ready for great action.
If you plan to hunt alone you would do well to practice with some ballast.
One of my hunting partners would use a cooler filled with sand in the front to stabilize it. Think low center of gravity!
Just reading this post brings back some wonderful times with old friends.
