The 2009 season is in full steam.
Early goose season has passed for another year. Now, our attention changes to the regular duck season and we now focus on another year of sea duck hunting. The first three weeks started out well with plenty of resident Eider moving around the usual old hunting locations. There was also a strong presence of Scoter. All three species are out and about. The Longtails are just starting to show up in huntable numbers as well. We had hunters from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri and South Carolina here this month enjoying some really great shooting and seasonable temperatures. Even in the early season we were still able to take limits of Eider all though most were not in full plumage we still managed to bag a few. The first banded bird of the year was taken at about mid month.
Looking forward to the rest of the season it appears to be a strong year. We are hoping for good weather and safe seas so all our guests can enjoy the same successes we have had in October.
