Sea Duck Hunting on the Pamlico Sound

Puddle duck and diver hunts - 1/2 day - $200.

What You Need to Know...
Sea ducks are ocean going birds, common in the Pamlico Sound, as they prefer the deep salt water of the ocean and coastal bays.  Large numbers of Oldsquaws (long tailed ducks) and three types scooters winter in our area.  While hunting Sea duck, forget anything you know about duck hunting. Think of the blind or boat as your fort, and you are there to defend it. Sea duck come in low and fast, very fast and most often leave the same way.  One of the biggest problems is seeing the ducks. They can approach from any direction. Most of the birds arrive below the horizon. You have to spot dark ducks against dark water, while dealing with choppy conditions and/or sun glare. They go from full flight to a splash or crash landing in a second.  If you like fast-paced action in your face, sea duck hunting may be for you-bring plenty of non-toxic ammo, firing up to 100 rounds per outing. There is currently a seven sea bird limit, in addition to your other duck limits.
