Kinda day dreaming about making a trip to the northeast to do some sea duck, brant and black duck hunting. Due to covid it probably wont be this season but hopefully for 2021/22. I am thinking Maine.

Anyone here do this trip? And recommendations for guides/outfitters? Any tips or other recommendations?

Thanks

I thought this was going to be about north east Texas.

I hunted Maine the first weekend of January this year and it was an absolute blast, I will definitely be going back. We hunted with Troy Fields and I couldn't say enough good things about him and his dog. They both worked their butts off for us and put us on ducks every day.

As far as other tips goes, its unlikely you are going to have a day where you are shooting wall hangers of several different species at the same time as these ducks are hanging out in different areas or habitats. You would need to decide which birds you want to target and in which order and figure you'll need a morning of hunting for each one.

Bring a box of steel shot #7 or #8 for cutting cripples, those are really tough birds and those shells work way better and are a lot cheaper than trying to cut them with bismuth.
