We ask that you check in at the lodge after 5 pm the day before your hunt. This gives us time to get the lodge ready for our incoming guests. After you check in you are more than welcome to ride out to the farm and watch the ducks going to roost, or kick back at the lodge and get unpacked. After dinner you can sit out by the fire pit, catch a game on the TV, play pool, or call it a night to get some rest for your hunt. The next morning we will have you up in time to grab a bite to eat before we head out to the blind. We will carry you to the farm in our SUV and from there take a side X side to the blind. We will want to be in the blind 30 minutes before shooting hours to get everyone settled in and give our guides time to set up decoys. We typically end the morning hunt by 12:00 to allow the ducks to get back into the fields and feed for the rest of the day, not to mention getting back to the lodge for a big breakfast/lunch. There are instances where we will hunt in the afternoon depending on what the ducks are doing, but normally it will be a morning only hunt. We try to only hunt our holes a couple of times a week, you can ruin a great spot by hunting it day after day. We like for each guide to take out a maximum of 6 people per group. Some of our blinds can accommodate more than 6 hunters if you do have a big group and want to stay together. We do not mix hunting parties unless there is a mutual agreement from both sides to hunt together. If we have more than one group hunting we will rotate to different spots to give everyone a chance to hunt a hot hole.
