Upper Peninsula Hunting

Postby DIYduckslayer » Fri Jun 13, 2014 9:53 am

Hello all - looking for some information. I'm staying in Sault St. Marie from September 20 to 29 to fish, and would like to find a duck hunting outfitter / guide for a few days during that week. Does anyone have a trusted name to share? There will be three or four of us hunting, and I'd like to find a guide that is fairly close to the Sault St. Marie area, if possible. Thanks for any help you can lend. Mike.

Odd that a guy with "Do It Yourself (DIY)" in his name, would ask about a guide... lol

I don't have any names for you.
There are only two types of people in the world, those who love duck hunting and those who never have duck hunted.

I'll be honest with you, hunting the lower river on the opener is a real Zoo. Other than getting out on the marsh, I doubt if you would find the whole experience rewarding or worthwhile. You are obligated to get set-up easily two hours prior shooting time. You will still have people motoring in on your spread and setting-up within fifty yards in many areas of the marsh. Sky busting is routine, despite the annual presence of at least on pair of C.O.s, illegal activity is pretty routine.

I'll second what corkdust said. I went to school in the soo the last 4 yrs, don't really know of any decent guides, but if you find one hopefully he has private land to hunt, otherwise you ll be out there in WWIII with everybody else. Goodluck to ya.
