They were also kind enough to host a youth hunt this year through Delta Waterfowl. They are top notch! :grooving:

A friend of mine does some video work for the owner and he raves about how good the hunting is. I saw the video and it looked like they had a great hunt. No personal experience. Hope it helps.

Hunted there opening weekend and two other times this fall. Have never limited but have never gone home shut out. Nice blinds and pits. Good guides that know their business.
Lots of specks and snows in the area last I was there (Dec 8-11) and new ducks were arriving. Have been hunting there for 6-7 years.
Jim is a straight talker. If there are birds, he will tell you. If you should stay home, he will tell you to stay home.

Had a friend hunt there. He paid $100/person before guide fees. Showed up, no breakfast was served as he was told/advertised. Didn't kill any birds. Don't go there to duck hunt, he hunted over a snow goose spread.....Later in day, he was moved to a water pit, but ducks weren't flying then.

Breakfast was served to his guides and dog (he ate gravy), but not the pay hunters.

I hunt a private lake regularly and kill birds, it's free and will fix a free breakfast. Shoot, I'll even drive, use my boat and not charge you gas.

Before anyone starts bashing, I know it's not about killing. It's about Comradery, eating and letting the dog work.

Never knew breakfast was advertised in the deal. But I've been known to be wrong. And he should of spoke up and said he wanted to hunt water. If hunting over a snow spread usually means that's what we are killing most of. When we go white ducks are stale and just not moving. Better to shoot the white birds then sit and watch no ducks and the white birds hit the fields. But just my feeling. Always remember hunting club not a bird release club. We can only hunt what migrates in.

Your right, it's not advertised. I understand you can only shoot or kill what comes in. Never the less...Merry Christmas to all
