Hunters do not have time to scout marshes off season and find the best places to erect blinds. Few hunters can follow the migration patterns, learning where different species of ducks stop, at different times of the year. This is why hunters hire duck hunting guides. Hunters should carefully select a guide based on their references. Good duck hunting guides help hunters go home with a full quota of ducks. If the trophy is as important as the hunting trip, then guided duck hunts are worth the fees charged.
Professional duck hunting guides should supply transport, blinds, and a boat for retrieving the ducks. They may even call the ducks in. Ask the duck hunting guides how many kills they had in the previous year. Hundreds of thousands of snow geese travel through the mid States on their migration. Snow geese hunting offers a challenge. Snow geese hunters attempts to lure geese into field using decoys.
