Hide behind the seaweed and rocks at low tide, watch the tide, it comes up fast. Grand Manan is pretty awesome and I am pretty sure there is some guides there or St. Andrews has some guides. Just google it or even check with Kijiji. It's too bad you need a guide, should be able to just buy a license and go like some other provinces, but the Gov here does't see Nat Resources as a revenue stream worth investigating I don't think. At any rate, just wear some dark cloths and don't move much, keen eyes late season. No need to call. I have heard of some guys just using javex bottles for decoys, never tried it myself, but a cheap alternative.

You can't free lance...non residents need a guide.
You should be able to google NB outfitters. I'm originally from NB...but I lived on the east coast, but the better eider hunting is done on the southern coast on or near Passamaquaddy Bay, Deer Island or Grand Manan Island and or the Bay of Fundy
