Scarce as hens teeth

So are there any reputable waterfowl guides in Pennsylvania? A buddy and I would like to find one. What about Delaware or Maryland?

Do yourself a favor and skip the Pa guided waterfowl hunt, there's just not that much available. You didn't say anything about whether you want a goose or duck hunt but I'd reccomend a duck hunt on salt water somewhere on the East coast.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

I second what Goose said. I'm by no means a seasoned waterfowler, but have gone on several guided duck hunts on the Chesapeake in the Annapolis area. Had a great time. Those sea ducks can fly pretty fast! The guy we used to go with has retired, but get some recommendations and go from there.

Don't forget to tear down your gun and clean it good after the hunt. That salt water and air is hard on them.

It seems that way. I was interested in possibly puddle ducks. I've seen a couple outfitters but read reviews that had me questioning things.

Maybe try sea ducks first, it's some fast shooting, not that far away, pretty fun, and the migration isn't as finicky as geese and puddle ducks. They seem to migrate down no matter what the weather, warm or cold. Puddle ducks and geese depend way more on what the weather is, before they move.

Just my opinion.

I can PM you a couple good guides on the Eastern shore if you want.

Maryland Waterfowl Guide Service


I bowfished with the owner. He has top notch operations on the bowfishing and sea duck hunting fronts.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
