Central Florida Duck Hunts
Central Florida has some of the most unique duck hunting in the United States. The Southeast Flyway becomes home to many different species of birds as the cold front freezes the Northern States. The ducks migrate to our coasts, inland lakes, ponds, marshes, and flooded pastures.
When hunting with us you can expect the opportunity to shoot Ringed Neck Ducks, Teal, and Mottled Ducks. Later season hunts present the opportunity to shoot more migratory birds of different species, such as Pintails, Wigeon, Red Heads and Canvasbacks.
Our hunts take place on Public waters from duck boats fully equipped with comfortable seating, decoys and blinds. We also hunt in layouts or in the water with waders based on conditions.
