Guided Canada Goose & Duck Hunts in NY & VT in the Atlantic Flyway (September-January)

Base price is per hunter per day. Group rates are available for groups of 8 hunters/day. Or add pheasant hunting

New York in September is arguably some of the best and most action-packed Canada Goose wingshooting in North America! With the high 15-bird bag limits per hunter and the legal use of unplugged shotguns, the potential for 100-plus bird days and consistent high-volume gunning is not in short supply. Many of our guests have now started booking 3-4 days and well over a year in advance! There is no surprise that this is a high-demand time of the year! Call as early as possible to reserve your hunts. We will fill up entirely and turn away groups…..

We provide exceptional opportunities for pursuing Canada Goose, Greater Snow Geese, Puddle Ducks, and Diver Ducks during the Fall Season in the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain Region. We are currently hunting on nearly 28,000 acres which is all private land that is leased under contracts.

We are located in Plattsburgh, NY on the shore of Lake Champlain and a prime migration corridor in the Atlantic Flyway. We offer our guests some of the first chances at migrating waterfowl in New York State as they leave Canada. Our waterfowl hunts are conducted in traditional Staging Habitats and Resting areas in the Atlantic Flyway that migrating waterfowl use year after year. These areas are fertile agricultural regions, swamps, and marshes traditionally used by migrating Ducks, Canada Geese, and Snow Geese year after year.

We have opportunities from September until April to hunt a variety of Waterfowl species in New York, from Canada Geese and Greater Snow geese in dry agricultural fields to hunting Dabbler Ducks and Diver Ducks on Private water leased specifically for waterfowl hunting.

We also hunt on Lake Champlain for Dabbler ducks & Diving ducks during the late season when the smaller waterways begin to freeze.

Puddle Ducks species that you are likely to encounter are Mallards, Wood Ducks, Black Ducks, Green Wing Teal, and occasionally Pintail, Blue Wing Teal, Widgeon, and Gadwalls.

Diver duck species we regularly see are Common Goldeneyes, Greater Scaup aka Bluebills, Buffleheads, Ringnecks, Longtails aka Old Squaw, and the occasional White wing scoter, Canvasback, or Redhead.

There is nothing more magical than watching a flock of Ducks lock up into the decoys, or a group of huge Greater Canada Geese work the spread feet down in your face! Fall Snow geese–We got them! The Champlain Valley holds the only truly reliable Fall Greater Snow goose hunting in NY from October to December.

Call and schedule your hunt at the best time of the season for what you are after. Our Guides and Experienced Retrievers will make sure you have an enjoyable stress-free hunt! Guides are glad to answer questions and provide details about calling and setup strategy to help you be a better Waterfowl Hunter!

Guided Fall Waterfowl Hunts in NY, VT & Adirondacks (September-January)

Our guests can expect the hunt preparation to start in the pre-dawn hours. You will meet your guide and review the strategy and what you can expect for the day. Our guides will accompany you in the field before first light and help you call in the Waterfowl. When the Ducks or Geese come into range our Guides will call the shot, instructing all the hunters to take aim and make a pile! Some days hunters that are physically able will be asked to help the Guide with setting out or picking up the decoy spread. This is a team effort and all part of the hunt. The hunt will conclude when limits are reached or at 12 Noon. Our Guides will pick up the blinds and decoys to scout for the following days hunt. This also lets the birds rest and feed in the afternoons limiting pressure on them.

After the Hunt

Birds are the responsibility of the hunting party. Birds will be processed back at the trucks by guests or your Guide will process for a fee/bird if you prefer. Guides will breast birds out and leave a wing attached for traveling back across state lines. All carcasses will be taken by the guide to ensure they are disposed of properly.

Many people choose to relax and rest up for the following day’s adventure by seeing some of the area’s scenic destinations like Ausable Chasm. If you enjoy tasting local Craft Beers and Wines. Check out Ausable Brewing Co, Valcour Brewing Company, The Oval Brewery, and Plattsburgh Brewing Co located right in the same building as the Comfort Inn lodging. If Wine and Ciders are your thing– definitely check out Elf’s Farm Winery & Ciderhouse and Vesco Ridge Vineyards for a great Tasting experience. Recommended formal dining options are Anthony’s Restaurant & Bistro, Latitude 44 Bistro, and for more casual Dining check out Mickey’s Restaurant and Our House Bistro. For those diehards who want to squeeze every bit of action, they can into the day! Guests can take full advantage of our Blast and cast Package, the Waterfowl and Deer hunt Package, and our Fishing and Bowfishing Combo Packages! While you relax and enjoy everything the Lake Champlain Region has to offer. Our guides will be out in the afternoons until dusk scouting birds for the following days’ hunt. If you decide to preserve your Trophy–we have an exceptional Taxidermist who we can put you in touch with if you plan to have the work done locally.

If you’re extending your vacation, don’t miss out on the rest of the Adirondacks and Northern New York!
