Chincoteague Hunting & Fishing Center

We appreciate your interest in Chincoteague Hunting/Fishing Center Inc. We offer guided waterfowl hunting on the Virginia's Eastern Shore, which are the wintering grounds for one of the largest, most diverse populations of waterfowl found anywhere and includes the largest concentration of Greater Snow Geese in the country.

Chincoteague Hunting & Fishing Cntr. has been rated as one of the top one hundred greatest waterfowl outfitters in North America.

"...Capt. Pete Wallace has set up a waterfowling outfitting service that will gladden the heart of any hunter".

We have approximately 100 blinds from the Maryland-Virginia state line south for approximately thirty miles. We also have blinds in and around the Saxis Wildlife Management area on the Chesapeake Bay. These blinds include marsh blinds, which overlook ponds and creeks. Pole blinds, which are located in the open waters of the bays and sounds. We also have grass boats, floating and portable blinds. Our guides provide you with transportation to and from the blinds. They are licensed Coast Guard Captains with Coast Guard inspected vessels. Your guide will remain near by throughout the hunt to set out decoys, retrieve your birds and relocate you as necessary. We often move a few times throughout the hunt depending on weather conditions, tides and the type of waterfowl you are hunting. It is possible to hunt Puddle ducks, Divers, Sea Ducks, Brant and Geese all in the same day.

Captain Pete Wallace started in this area approximately thirty years ago as a Charter Boat operater. The business expanded into waterfowl guide service currently employing five full time guides. We are a Virginia hunting license agent and offer a full selection of ammo at competitive prices.

Latest News And Updates

 The last two seasons of waterfowl hunting have been 2 of our best. This season is shaping up to be as good or better. We have been seeing more early season birds than than I can remember. Over the last couple of years both numbers of birds and variety of species have been up. We are seeing more Redhead, Goldeneye, Bluebill, Gadwall, Shovelers and Ruddyduck. Our regulars; Blackduck, Dippers, Seaducks, Brant, Mergansers & Snowgeese are all still in real good shape. When the weather has been right we are killing a few Pintail and Widgon. We are seeing few if any Can's on the seaside, but should be able to hunt the Chesapeake from boats or the bank if the Canvasback show up over there this year.We have had groups that have killed 18 different species of birds on a 3 day hunt. 
 Unfortunately the Brant remained in the upper bay most of last season. They didn't move until the freezing weather in the last part of the season. We are already seeing more Brant around the inlet than we saw all of last season.
The duck wizards have said that it was a good nesting season and are expecting a better than average migration. It is predicted to be a cold winter, so everything is pointing to another great year.
 Not knowing what caused the better than normal mixture of birds over the past couple of years, we don't know what to expect this year as far as species. But it's been 2 years in a row and I hope that they have enjoyed spending their winters with us as much as we have enjoyed having them. If they do return this year, they can expect a warm welcome.

 For those not on our email list, we have a early season special which runs until December 24th.
"Hunt 2 days and get the third day free" This special is valid through December 24th ONLY
We will also be offering a "Free youth day hunt" at the end of the season.
