Flyway Fowling vs. Hideaway Hollow

Postby d_hunter12 » Thu Sep 26, 2013 12:04 pm

Hey fellows, I've got a question for you locals. I'm going to make a trip up to pool 9 next November. I've been in contact with Flyway Fowling and Hideaway Hollow. I really like what each guy has to offer but I can not make up my mind about who to book with. So my question for everyone is which guide service would you go with and why? I will be hunting middle of the week and will have 2 more guys with me. We'll only be able to hunt for 2 days. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I've been hunting with Todd from Flyway Fowling for 4 years and I can say he is a top notch guy and a true professional! There are a few other guides in pool 9, but he's the only one I'll contract with. I've been waterfowling since I was young and still every time I hunt with Todd, I take away something new. All of that AND he cooks the most amazing breakfast in his boat that you can imagine. You definitely wont go away hungry.

I'm actually hunting with Todd this week, taking my 12 year old for his first duck hunt. We can't wait!

I heard that Matt moved up river out of Pool 9 to get on more birds. To OP I have some friends that always go with Hideaway Hollow. I think both are top of the line guides from what people have said.

Hands down Todd from flyway fowl. Great guy, great service. He lives on the damned pool and knows the area as good as anyone.

You must have been in the wrong area or doing something wrong.

I feel bad for whoever hideaway took out this past Sunday. He shows up later than he should to find guys in all the spots in this area and proceeds to set up right down wind of me maybe 200 yards with the wind right in his face.

Then what screwed us all was 15min into legal time the fishermen started to show up and fish directly between our two rigs. We packed it up and he proceeded to do the same. Hope he was able to move and show them folks a better time.


Just go with Todd and call it good.

Don't know the guy personally but I'd say its more than likely his group arrived late, having had to deal with it many times myself.

I don't doubt that one bit, but anyone who hunts that area regularly knows thats not an area to show up late too especially on a weekend, and the days wind direction provided even fewer spots. Regardless we both got dealt a bad hand with the fishermen. For safety reason neither of us could fire a shot. If the one fishing boat didn't have a child on board we would have had a few words.

Koonce727, Talked to Matt(Hideaway Hollow) today after his clients asked about your post. This is a photo of the Sunday you are talking about. Matt said he hunted north and shot a 2 limit and had no problem with a fisherman.

Could have been another guide then, I know it wasnt Matt ellis, it was a different boat. So I could be wrong. If it was the guy from Hideaway then His move paid off cuz I know he packed up also when the fishermen showed up. Props to him then for moving and getting on some birds if it was him.

There are just to many guides for me to keep up with these days.

Pool 9 in pure magic. Plenty of spots to choose from and light pressure.
