Postby lbhansford » Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:28 am

Hey guys. I am an able and willing waterfowler up in VA. my dad has gotten up in his years so having him hike a mile through the woods to beaver swamps isnt as much fun for him as it is me. Id love to take him on a QUALITY duck hunt in NC on the sound or possibly around mattamuskeet. Something he's always talked about. Any friendly advice on who or who would not fit the bill would be helpful. thanks in advance.

I would not recommend to pay to hunt ducks in NC. Too inconsistent
Head west if you want to kill ducks
I kill more ducks in one week on public water than you and your "Crews" or "Teams" would even think of killing all season. I work hard, scout and abide by the law...but still kill the crap out of ducks.

I would think that all quality guides in NC are completely booked for 2017. there are several losers out here that will take your money but Quality guides they are not.

That's the guide that posted a video of cormorants and said they were divers.

We have a whole pile of idiots up here taking people to shoot bufflehead under the pretense that they're going to a good blind but that's the only person I've seen do anything like that and then instead of owning up to it and taking the videos down, he blocked the people calling him on it and delete their comments.

Yup I remember that. So I went through them because I just wanted to do a traditional scissor rig hunt. Didn't care too much about the birds because I knew it had already been a rough season last year.

Got to the ramp about 2 hrs before LST. Guien had apparently "overbooked" so he got some friend of his to take us out. His friend sat around at the ramp socializing and drinking coffee for an insane amount of time so we actually got to the spot after LST and still had to set up.

Once we got there, the guy was on his phone texting immediately so as an experienced hunter I decided to call a wad of GWT and brought them into the decoys and we dropped 4/5. The guide then turned to me and said "guess you don't need me anymore" so he went to sleep.

This made me curious so I checked out their website. Very snazzy: if you did not know what you have pointed out you would think thee guys are the best on the coast.

Prices are below, which are accompanied by this: "Gratuity is not included in price and is normally 10% to 20% of the trip"


$250 per person…………(meet at the dock morning of hunt )
$350 per person…………(includes hunt, accommodations, and breakfast served before hunt)… (Available only for groups of 3 or more)
$50 per gun deposit is required for reservation.

Wow-----I would be beyond angry if I put up that kind of money and experienced what Bluesky did.

... and if you don’t kill ducks it’s because either there are few birds around OR you can’t shoot worth a chit ...
