This convenient hunting location allows the hunter to spend more time hunting and less time traveling to distant locations. This type of duck hunting offers an experience few ever get a chance to enjoy. The beauty of the mangrove estuaries and bay along with fast paced flocks of ducks is a memory that will last a lifetime. Your hunt location will be pre-scouted and GPS located prior to your hunt. Each duck hunt is conducted from the airboat utilizing netting and natural camoflauge for concealment. These hunts are limited to no more than 3 hunters. This is an excellent way to spend a morning or afternoon.
