Eastern View Outfitters LLC provides exceptional opportunities for pursuing Canada Goose, Greater Snow Geese , Puddle Ducks,  and Diver Ducks during the Fall Season in the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain Region. We are currently hunting on nearly 28,000 acres which is all private land that is leased under contracts.

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, swamps and marshes that are traditionally used by migrating Ducks, Canada Geese and Snow Geese year after year. 

We have opportunities from September until April to hunt a variety of Waterfowl species in New York, from Canada Geese and Greater Snow geese in dry agricultural fields, to hunting Dabbler Ducks and Diver Ducks on Private water leased specifically for waterfowl hunting.

We also hunt on Lake Champlain for Dabbler ducks & Diving ducks during the late season when the smaller waterways begin to freeze.

Puddle Ducks species that  you are likely to encounter are Mallards, Wood Ducks, Black Ducks, Green Wing Teal and occasionally Pintail, Blue Wing Teal, Widgeon, and Gadwalls.  

Diver duck species we regularly see are Common Goldeneyes, Greater Scaup aka Bluebills, Buffelheads, Ringnecks, Longtail aka Old Squaw and the occasional White wing scoter, Canvasback or Redhead. 

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! The Champlain Valley holds the only truly reliable Fall Greater Snow goose hunting in NY from October to December.

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!

“We had an awesome time goose hunting with Bryce and his team. The hunt was exactly what Bryce described over the phone prior to the hunt. The Eastern View Outfitters team was very professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. You can tell the team does their homework, we had our limit by 9:30AM. Make sure you bring plenty of ammo!”

Eric Morton, Vermont

“Eastern View Outfitters put in a lot of thought and effort to make the most out of the weekend for myself, my wife and a friend of ours. They are very knowledgeable about everything they cater to. From the initial email with Captain Bryce to the final handshake good bye everything went above and beyond what I had hoped for from our weekend. Bryce Collins and EVO certainly earned our respect for everything they did to make our trip memorable. Being able to cross a blue goose off of my bucket list thanks to their effort is beyond appreciated and a memory I will never lose track of. Thousands of Greater Snow geese poured into the decoys! Strongly recommended a multi day trip to really enjoy everything EVO offers as a guide service. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you for such outstanding service!!”

Johnathon Day, New York

“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, Florida

Guided Fall Waterfowl Hunts in NY, VT & Adirondacks (September-January)

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.
