Your #1 Trophy Maine Seaduck Hunting Outfitter

Come on Maine Seaduck Hunts and hunt the picturesque Maine Coast where Eiders, Oldsquaws and Scoters winter in amazing numbers. With a limit of seven ducks per day, a selective drake shooting is practiced to ensure population growth. The Maine Sea Duck Hunting style at Penobscot Bay Outfitters is set up with the trophy hunter in mind. We will be set up to hunt at the opening of legal shooting time to sunrise. This will give us the chance at seeing the morning flights of Sea Ducks and Puddle Ducks. After the morning Maine Sea Duck Hunts we often go right to Maine Puddle Duck Hunting or Maine Sea Duck Hunting if the hunters would like to hunt for Black Ducks, Goldeneyes, or some of the other diving Ducks Maine has to offer.

Guns & Shells for Maine Duck Hunts
We strongly suggest 12 or 10 gauge shotguns with 3", 3 1/2" or 2 3/4" chambers with modified chokes (no full chokes). Shotguns must be plugged to hold no more than three shells, ammunition must be nontoxic shot in either #3, #2 or #1 shot. A cleaning kit is also recommended due to the salt water exposure.
