This day my good friend Paul Boyce and my dad joyned me for an early season teal hunt..There had been some birds around but we werent quite sure how it would go…We ended up with a great hunt and a great way to start the 2012-2013 waterfowl season…We are booking duck hunts now so please give us a call…  252-395-1907

Continued prep…

Although the fishing remains awesome… another season is fast approaching!  Plenty of work to keep up with after the boat hits the dock in the afternoons… it’s that time of year to be thinking about this winter’s schedule and getting dates firmed up for the ducks 🙂

Way to go Murph!

Congratulations to a great friend on his turkey quest in New Hampshire!!  Mother nature sometimes doesn’t cooperate but a driving rain didn’t stop the hunt… tough and patient perseverance resulted in the taking of a beautiful 22 pound gobbler with a 9 inch beard and 1 1/8 inch spurs…. Pretty Work Dan!!! 

Spring Turkey comes to a close…

What an amazing season!!  We can’t thank our guys enough for all the fun and fantastic hunts this spring!!  What a great way to spend this time of the year… time in the woods and time with good friends – it really doesn’t get any better… Thank you so much to everyone!!  I have some pictures but not all… please send any additional pics my way and I’ll get ’em posted!!




Double Gobblers!

Nice job guys!!!!  A fantastic hunt to polish off an awesome time with these guys… Kelly and David – Thank you so much!!  Two nice birds taken on this beautiful morning… hard to beat days like this!!


2 more weeks…

This spring season is going way too fast… just 2 more weeks left!  After years of leaving his gun in the truck and working so hard to call gobblers in for everyone else… the boss decided to take one for himself this season.  A 500 pound black bear completely sabotaged the first hunt of the morning… chasing off the birds as they were headed straight to the call (That’s the second hunt his spring to be foiled by a bear!)…. Karl wasn’t taking any chances with the next opportunity 🙂




One for the girls :)

This spring season is proving to be a productive one! Lots of beautiful birds out there doing their thing…what an incredible display to witness!  We are so thankful to be able to spend time in the woods during this gorgeous time of year… and to watch mother nature at her finest is an amazing bonus…


Turkey Turkey!

Once again…Pretty work Gordon!!!  As always!!!!  You are the master 🙂  What a nice bird…looking forward to next time!!!

Youth Day!

We had 3 fantastic young men today… It is such a joy to see our youngsters love the outdoors!  One responsive gobbler was chased off by a 300 pound black bear who wandered into the hunt, obviously curious about the call and determined to check everybody out up close… a fantastic sight to see (although a little unnerving!) but not very conducive for a successful hunt 🙂  Lots of turkeys around and very active during this warm spring!!    Congratulations to Daniel for getting this great bird… Jimmy and Bobby – no worries… the season has just begun!  Thank you every body for a wonderful start to spring turkeys!!
