10 Great Duck Hunting Destinations

Maybe you've always wanted to try your hand at a dry field hunt in the Dakotas. Maybe you've thought about going unguided. Perhaps you prefer the high adventure of a sea duck hunt.


Or how about a taste of history — a hunt on the same waters where market gunners piled up canvasbacks fattened on wild celery and eel grass? And who doesn't have a green timber mallard hunt on their bucket list? So many ducks, so many options, so little time.


We've had two great years with duck numbers at or near all-time highs, but there's no telling what the future holds for duck populations. Biologists are cautiously optimistic about the coming year thanks to abundant winter moisture on the nesting grounds. We could have another bumper crop of ducks next fall. After that, nobody can say. In other words, there's no better time to take that dream duck hunting trip than next season. It's right around the corner. Start planning now.
