Our Hunts

Many quiet fall mornings are turned into a volley of hail calls, quacks, feeding chuckles, and hopefully a barrage of steel shot whipping through the air and feathers. Wether it's puddle ducks in a marsh or diving ducks on big water, we can set you up for a successful trip. All duck hunts are guaranteed...No Birds, No Pay!

Diving Ducks

We hunt four different Finger Lakes and a few bays of Lake Ontario. Shore blinds and box blinds make up most of our hunting situations. Most spreads consist of up to 150 decoys, mostly all on gang rigs or long lines. Diver hunting is fast pace, in your face action. Bringing a lot of shells on this hunt will be your most important instructions!

Redhead, Golden Eye, Bluebill, Canvasback

Puddle Ducks

During the fall migration, ducks need two things: water and food. We have access to both, and in many situations, at the same time in many flooded corn fields! Fish and Feathers can offer marsh hunts, field hunts or flooded corn hunts for ducks. We hunt both private and public land. Sometimes we don't have to go far from civilization to find great duck hunting.

Mallards, Black Ducks, Teal, Pintail, Gadwall
