Any duck hunting groups less than 4 may be combined with another group if need be. A group of 4 or more will have a dedicated guide and will not be combined with another group. All duck hunters are required to wear waders. If you or a men of your group doesn’t have or can’t get waders, isn’t capable of standing in water for extended periods of time, isn’t capable of getting into or out of a layout boat, please let me know at time of booking so special arrangements can be made or options can be discussed. Please, let me know well in advance so I can plan accordingly rather than scramble to make arrangements the morning of the hunt. Later in the season this could have a significant impact on the success of your hunt. Early season hunts are typically done from shore or from boat. These are much easier hunts for children, elderly, mobility impaired people. Typically the first 4-5 weeks of the season allow us to utilize boat blinds and shore blinds. Later in the season birds get weary and avoid land and large boat blinds. This is when we utilize other methods such as layout boats, small standing blinds, and other less intrusive methods of concealing hunters. An unforgettable duck hunting experience Don't miss the chance to experience Florida-style duck hunting at its finest. Reserve your spot for the upcoming season and embark on an unforgettable adventure with our expert guides. Prepare to become a skilled duck hunter as you create memories that will last a lifetime.

trip description for Panhandle Duck Hunts in Pensacola

While this might be a slightly informal duck hunt, Captain Tim knows how to put you on em! Ducks on the panhandle are less consistent than in other regions of the country and thus require creative techniques to kill them. While setting up decoy spreads never hurt if you'd like to bring your own, Captain Tim prefers to do his scouting ahead of time, head up the river, and find a brushed-in spot on the bank to give him prime time passing shots as ducks fly low heading from roost to feed, and cove to cove as boaters flush them up throughout the morning. As a full-time fishing guide, he always has a pulse on duck movements since he's on the water all day every day. To that end he also finds ducks on the shoreline as well. When the ducks are there, he sets up in the water by the wildlife refuge and waits for the ducks to make the fateful mistake of flying out over the water as they cruise by. Whether it's setting up on the river or on the shoreline, Florida's panhandle holds some typical duck species like Blue and Green Winged Teal, Bluebills, Redheads, Wooducks, and Buffleheads. But also is home to a rare duck for some trophy hunters in the Black Bellied Whistling duck! Please bring your own gear: Waders, Camouflage, Shotguns, Steel Shot, and Decoys if you'd like (Decoys not required by any means). Captain Tim will take care of the rest getting you in position and setting you up for success! Read More

    We had an awesome time with Carlos. He did a great job with the safety briefing and we had our first iguana on the boat in less than 15 minutes. Carlos helped us spot a big iguana ina tree at the end of our trip and hung over the end of the boat in deep trees and cover to retrieve it.
