Brant Decoys

 

 
On a small barrier island called Assateague, hunters can experience a diverse population of ducks and geese.  The island is a National Wildlife Refuge and the home to the world famous Chincoteague ponies. 

 
A typical day begins at 5:00 a.m. when the hunting party meets for breakfast at a local restaurant.  The party then departs from Andys’ private dock via boat en route to one of his many blinds.  They include stationary plywood blinds on marshland leased from the Refuge and pole blinds placed around the area. Hundreds of decoys are utilized to attract a variety of birds.  A hunter could expect to encounter Black Ducks, Mallards, Pintails, Gadwalls, Widgeons, Shovelbills, Greenwing Teal, Bufflehead, Bluebills, Hooded and Red-breasted Mergansers, Brant and Canada and Snow Geese during the season.  Each group is provided with a hand-held radio for communication.  Andy remains with the party for the entire day - from dawn to dusk.  He is available to sight and retrieve birds, as well as relocating hunters to other blinds when conditions warrant.  After an enjoyable days’ hunt, the group often gathers for a recap of the days’ events and to dine on fresh seafood delicacies at an island restaurant.

Chincoteague Island is known for it's waterfowl that migrate through here every year.
 Located just hours from Washington and Philadelphia, it offers the best in hunting and exploring the marshes that surround the island. Well protected from the ocean by Assateague Island (Chincoteague Island national refuge), Chincoteague Island offers great hunting and fishing in a relaxed environment.

 
Andy will be happy to arrange motel accommodations and purchase non-resident license if desired.  Well-trained dogs are welcomed.  Chest waders or hip boots are preferred.  Warm hooded, waterproof clothing is a must. Box lunches can be purchased at breakfast.
