Never heard of them before. I would ask them for some references.

According the the website, you will either be going to some private land near Lanier or hunting public land at Guntersville. I would assume you will be going to the spot near Lanier, so I would hope for a few wood ducks, maybe a tammie mallard, and a goose or two. Good luck with it, but in the future I would recommend heading west if you are going to pay for a guide. That seems a little steep for what you will have the opportunity to kill, and you can get a guide in MS, LA, or even ARK for $200 day or less in some cases.

I would NEVER pay for a guided duck hunt in GA. I know some guys that got suckered in to going with these clowns and the guide showed up hungover, late, with no decoys, and make up on!!! Good luck with that. By the way you ask questions about a guide before you book with them!!

Allflockedup,that is not the experience i had at all.And i did research before hand plus one of my friends scouts for them.I just wanted to see if any one else had the opportunity to go with them.

The hunt was awesome.I personally downed two woodys and took three geese. There was two guides for five hunters and they brought two labs for us. It was in a swamp.They brought a great spread of decoys,including geese,woodys,mallards, and two mallard mojos.They as well had two magnums with battery operated propellers that had them swimming in circles.

Like all Ga hunts i've ever been on it started with woodys blasting by at low light.There was plenty of them too.Plenty of opportunities.As well after the woody ruch we had to have seen at least 65 geese fly over, not all presented a shot but it was still great.At least 30 geese gave us a shot.
The mallards stayed a mile high in the shy.Saw about 12 with no opportunity to shoot, i blame the 74 degree weather in the middle of winter.
The unt was a little pricy but very worth it to me. Great time just like any duck hunt.
