This is not your typical Duck Hunt, As many of our clients have expressed, but probably best explained by a great review:
"You will shoot your limit. Captain Bates put me in my first layout boat yesterday and we wore the sea ducks out. I’ve been hunting puddle ducks for a solid 10 years now, never once thinking about sea ducks and now I’m hooked. Andy put the birds right in our face and we had a 4 man limit in less than an hour. This will become an annual trip for me - Capt Bates is the man and I couldn’t recommend him any more highly. Thanks Capt." -Customer, Thank you, we can't wait to see you next time too!
