Duck Hunting Guide for Non Resident

Postby Mudstomper » Fri Feb 23, 2018 7:52 am

Hello. I am hoping someone from the area can point me in the right direction for a duck hunting guide for early teal and also for later season hunts also. I am a waterfowl hunter from PA for 45 years. Thank you.

I'm guessing eastern part of the state because that's where the teal season is but do you have a specific location in mind or just want to go where the best opportunities are?

I would say the eastern part of the state but also I am open to were you would suggest the best opportunity is since it would be I hope multiple trips. Thank you for your quick reply.

Do you want to hunt in impoundments (flooded corn fields) or on the sound?

I am interested in impoundment hunts for puddlers and I love hunting divers which I assume would be in the sound. My favorite is early teal if I can find anyone that likes to do that. I just have some more time finally to get away and I am open to suggestions. Thank you.

Any reason why your focusing on NC? It really wouldn't be on my short list of duck hunting destinations if not for the fact that I liver here.

The following are good guides with very good reputations:

Parkers Waterfowl Service. Mostly Sound in Dare County - (252) 599-1739
Dare to Hyde - Mostly Impoundments in Hyde County (252)-926-9453
N-Hyde-N - sound and Impoundments Hyde County (252) 489-1840
Gurganus Guide Service - Hyde County (252)944-5636

Early teal is very iffy. here today gone tomorrow. However all can produce good late season teal in a normal year.
Google them, I think they all have web pages for info, rates and dates.


I am sure others have good guides to recommend.

Thank you for the info. I was hoping to maybe duck hunt a couple mornings and bring my wife and do a combination little vacation at the same time. That was the reason I had looked at North Carolina. Also my uncle who has since passed brought me down twice in the 80's an we had great hunts both times in January along the coast. So I was thinking of maybe an early season couple day hunt an maybe also trying to set something up for January hunt if possible.

If you want to shoot teal on a guided hunt, go to Louisiana.

I know Louisiana an Texas both get lots of blue wings. I was thinking your state got some also in some areas. We very seldom get any when our season opens here in Southeastern Pa there already gone. We have no early Teal season.

Does NC get some, yes. Is it a $400 hunt worth? No. Don't waste your time. If you really are desperate, go out to the salt marsh with a dozen blocks and a mojo on a 10' conduit pipe. Your odds in a random marsh pothole are not a whole lot off what any guide out there is going to do. The teal are here today and gone tomorrow so a decent bit of success is being lucky to hunt the days they pass through.

Thank you all for the info. I appreciate your honesty on the teal hunting. Pretty much sounds the same as I have hear when I go to Delaware an New Jersey which is close to me.
