Our guided waterfowl hunts take place near our lodge on Yakutat Bay.  Our hunts begin during the second week of October, and run through mid-December.  Sea duck shooting over decoys is from shore blinds.  Puddle duck shooting over decoys takes place on the many rivers, lakes and marshes in the area.
