Florida Diver Duck Hunt

Diver Duck Hunting –

$300 Per Gun – 2 Gun Minimum 

The hunt will begin approximately an hour and a half before daylight. This time will be used to set up and put out your decoy spread. We hunt for 3 hours or until a legal limit of ducks is harvested.

There are four main strategies we use to target diver ducks:

  1. Layout Boat Hunting– this is our most popular set up. This is especially kid friendly with in-your-face-shots. Also, this is awesome for late season veteran ducks that just can’t be fooled by regular spreads.
  2. Bank Blinds– this is our early season setup and works great until the birds start getting smart.
  3. Boat Blinds– this method is used with 16-foot aluminum duck boats with rigged pop-up blinds.
  4. Wader Hunting– Big spreads over grass beds where the ducks have been feeding.

Every week is different and we have to adapt week-by-week depending on how the birds react. We might be able to get away with as little as 4 dozen decoys or have to put out as many as 20 dozen decoys. The most commonly targeted species includes Redheads, Bluebills, and Buffleheads. You may also have a chance at a Scoter.
