10 Best Sea Duck Hunting Spots in the U.S.

Sea duck hunting isn't for everyone. It not only takes a bit of specialized equipment, it also takes guts. Big, rough water can give even the most dedicated puddle duck hunter the creeps, and extreme weather can definitely play a huge role in your hunt. There are great rewards for the willing hunter, but it's not for the faint of heart.

A top-notch guide can take some of the risk out of the equation and put you in the middle of tons of ducks. Not everyone can afford to go that route, but if you're trekking around the country looking for a great sea duck destination, it's probably worth your while. Of course when it comes to knocking down those birds, that part is entirely up to you. And it's not always an easy endeavor, since sea ducks are notoriously fast and can humble even the best wingshooters. But that's exactly why they are so much fun.

Whether you plan on putting the hunt together on your own or enlisting the help of a seasoned guide, we've got an inside look at some of the best places for sea duck hunting in the U.S.
