Sea Duck hunting Question

Postby jstewart_1981 » Thu Feb 13, 2014 11:53 am

I am trying to book a Sea Duck hunt in the North East for the up coming season. My problem is I think Im going to be coming alone, or myself and 1 other hunter. I am interested in hunting 2-3 days, preferably 3. From what I am seeing on the rate schedules the boats are being rented for x amount / day and understandably so. If I came alone or with 1 other person that wouldn't be logical for us. My question is will some guides join 2 small groups to hunt together or would it be a waste of their time? I am primarily interested in Old Squaw, but some scooters, Brant and possibly Eiders would be great too.. Buffleheads wouldn't hurt our feelings either. If you know of any that would work with someone in that way please let me know.

Most guides do a $250 for one or $175 per gun for groups of 2 or more. Look on the NJDFW website. They used to have a list of guides. Not sure if they still do or not

Honestly, if you get a decent guide and good weather, one day will be enough to fill the bag, get something for the wall, and burn a box of shells. Call a few guys and talk it over with them. I would start there.
