looking for a guide.. a good one

Postby rivershark » Sat May 18, 2013 6:17 am

hey guys, im looking to come out that ways this winter and try and find a guide to hunt some waterfowl.
reason im wanting a guide: 1. i dont have a freaking clue about the area. 2. i dont have the equiptment to do divers and/or sea ducks. 3 id hate to ruin a locals hunting spot by me not knowing what the crap im doing (not a good way to make friends).
i figure by getting a guide i can enjoy the fine sport and stay out of the way. id like to find one that would do a diver, sea duck and a puddle hunt, kind of a three day mix. im really not looking for the cheapest. being from arkansas i tend to know the quality of the hunt from sams choice guide service. since i dont know anything about the divers and sea ducks, all the guide service websites look the same, bunch of ducks in a few pics. any info will be awesome. and im definetly no opposed to swapping out information on arkansas hunting if need be. thanks
i dont know who you are or where you're going, but its a race to get there!

Chesapeake guide service for divers and canadas.

Quackerneck for puddlers

Pit boss for sea ducks.


I'm not aware of a guide who would be above average or better at all three.

The divers can be tricky with the guides, but if you book in late December or later you should be ok.

We do our own duck hunting, but as far as guides go, I have heard Pitboss is choice pick for sea ducks. Puddlers is hit and miss, depends on the birds
does having multiple screen names on a forum and having a conversation with yourself make you an extra special rock star hunter?

BTW- coming here from Arkansas to hunt puddle ducks is like leaving Las Vegas and heading to Colorado looking for a lap dance.

My suggestion would be two days in Chestertown, hunting canadas and divers Chesapeake style and then heading to Ocean City (about 2.5hrs drive) for a night and hitting up Pit Boss for a seas duck hunt or brant hunt.
