Guided Waterfowl Hunts in NY & VT in the Atlantic Flyway2018-07-25T14:52:43+00:00

Eastern View Outfitters provides exceptional opportunities for Puddle Ducks, Diver Ducks, Canada Goose and Snow Goose Hunts during the Fall Season in the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain Region. We have opportunities from September 1 until Late December to hunt a variety of Waterfowl species. We are located in Plattsburgh, NY on the shore of Lake Champlain and a prime migration corridor in the Atlantic Flyway. We offer our guests some of the first chances at migrating waterfowl in New York State as they leave Canada. Our waterfowl hunts are conducted in traditional Staging Habitats and Resting areas in the Atlantic Flyway that migrating waterfowl use year after year. These areas are fertile agricultural regions that are traditionally used by migrating Ducks, Canada Geese and Snow Geese year after year. We hunt on thousands of acres of private farmland.  We are strictly fair-chase, no feeders, or farm raised birds.

There is nothing more magical than watching a flock of Ducks lock up into the decoys, or a group of huge Greater Canada Geese work the spread feet down in your face! Fall Snow geese–We got them! Call and schedule your hunt at the best time of the season for what you are after. Our Guides and Experienced Retrievers will make sure you have an enjoyable stress-free hunt! Guides are glad to answer questions and provide details about calling and setup strategy to help you be a better Waterfowl Hunter!

“I can’t say enough about Bryce and EVO. He knows how to put us on the birds and made the hunt a great success. I will definitely be back next year! #makes-it-look-easy.”

David Gordon , New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

“I highly recommend booking a hunt with Bryce Collins at Eastern View Outfitters. He will put you in front of the birds with amazing, close up action. I had a great time with him on a very successful September goose hunt, and will be giving him a call again. The Champlain valley offers some of the best waterfowling on the east coast, and Eastern View Outfitters takes great advantage of this resource with a wide array of hunting. If you want an outstanding experience, give them a call!”

Stephen Gedney, Queensbury, NY

“My buddy and I just finished our goose hunt with Capt. Bryce at Eastern View Outfitters and had a great time. We were looking to blast a lot of birds and we got exactly that. We had so much action it was tough to get shells in the guns fast enough. The whole group limited out early and we went home extremely satisfied.

I will definitely be back in the spring for the snow geese!”

Dan Errett, Melbourne, FL

Guided Waterfowl Hunts in NY, VT & Adirondacks

Our guests can expect the hunt preparation to start in the pre-dawn hours.  You will meet your guide and go over the strategy and what you can expect for the day. Our guides will accompany you in the field before first light and help you call in the Waterfowl. When the Ducks or Geese come into range our Guides will call the shot, instructing all the hunters to take aim and make a pile! Some days hunters that are physically able will be asked help Guide with setting out or picking up the decoy spread. This is a team effort and all part of the hunt. The hunt will conclude when limits are reached or at 12 Noon. Our Guides will pick up the blinds and decoys to scout for the following days hunt. This also lets the birds rest and feed in the afternoons limiting pressure on them.

After the Hunt

Birds are the responsibility of the hunting party. Birds will be processed back at the trucks by guests or your Guide will process for a fee of $2/bird if you prefer.  Guides will breast birds out and leave a wing attached for traveling back across state lines. All carcasses will be taken by the guide to ensure they are disposed of properly. 

Many people choose to relax and rest up for the following days adventure by seeing some of the areas scenic destinations like Ausable Chasm. If you enjoy tasting local Craft Beers and Wines. Check out Ausable Brewing Co, Valcour Brewing Company, The Oval Brewery and Plattsburgh Brewing Co located right in the same building as the Comfort Inn lodging.

Recommended formal dining options are Anthony’s Restaurant & Bistro, Latitude 44 Bistro and for more casual Dining check out Mickey’s Restaurant and Our House Bistro.

While you relax and enjoy everything the Lake Champlain Region has to offer. Our guides will be out in the afternoons until dusk scouting birds for the following days hunt.
