Lake Michigan duck guides?

Postby njfowlfooler » Sun Apr 01, 2007 10:07 am

Just wondering if anyone knows of a guide service for ducks on Lake Michigan?
I am from New Jersey and I would like to hunt for a day in northern Indiana for ducks other than mallards or wood ducks in early november this year. I was thinking there may be a guide for divers on the big lake?Or even a guide on another lake in northern Indiana?
I would be greatfull for any information on this.
Thanks!

To get the divers in N Indiana,, timimg is key. Lots dont get here till after the north zone closes. Maybe this year will be different. If I were looking for a guide I would go with these guys www.biglakeoutdoors.com

They can kill some birds :thumbsup:

Thanks for that info. I spoke to John at biglake outdoors and he only does diver hunts in Michigan waters on Lake Michigan. I need to find someone who guides on the Indiana part of the lake. I am trying to hunt the 49 states that you can legally hunt ducks in and I have not hunted Indiana yet so thats why I need to hunt the big lake in Indiana waters. I am also trying to do this without shooting mallards.Here in my part of NJ we consider them trash ducks.
Thanks again.

but on a serious note, early november will more than likely not be very productive for divers at all on the lake :no:

timing for divers

Postby njfowlfooler » Sun Apr 01, 2007 7:06 pm

Yes, I know from my past hunts on Lake ontario in NY the weather in early to mid November makes a big differance in numbers of divers available. I am sure its the same in your area.I just can't make it any later due to my work schedule.
And really, I was not making a joke about the mallards here. I do get the same reaction no matter where I have hunted. Anyone that hunts around here would rather shoot a merganser or a coot than be seen with a mallard.

A good guide in northern Indiana, and they do layout hunting on the big lake, also do scull hunts, check out River City Outfitters, www.rivercityoutfitter.com, talk with Kevin Smith, great guy and he'll work hard for you! Good luck.
