Thanksgiving Sea Duck Hunting??

Postby tbyars » Wed Aug 28, 2013 12:10 pm

I normally hunt over the XMAS holiday break for eider and scoter, but I am being deployed for nine months starting December 1st. I am going to try and squeeze in a couple days hunting over Thanksgiving holidays. I imagine it's not as good but does anyone hunt them and have good results that time of the year?

Thank you for your service!

No reason why you cant have a great hunt around Thanksgiving.

My annual sea duck trip to maine was always over thanksgiving weekend but I haven't gone for a few years. My best morning, 7 ducks with 10 shells in 35 min.
Shoot straight and keep your powder dry. During your hunt and after you deploy. Thnanks for serving.
Preserve game, use a well trained retriever.

Thanks for your service, for one. We always go thanksgiving day, and do pretty well. The guides haven't pushed all the birds over into Acadia yet at that point, so we actually can bag a few haha
