Outer Banks Waterfowl Hunting

Fish and fowl charters runs most of their guided duck hunts in the currituck sound. With a few various blinds to hunt we can change our locations each day to try and get the best hunt for that days winds and bird patterns. With most of our blinds being open water with surrounding islands we can shoot a wide variety of birds from diver ducks to puddle ducks and even swans. Of course every day is a different hunt depending on weather patterns and wind. If the birds aren’t flying you will at least get to enjoy a warm breakfast provided to you by your guide. Shooting is 30 minutes before sunrise each day and we will do our best to try and get you some good shooting. We recommend shooting a 3 1/2 inch number 3 shot or number 2 shot. We will provide decoys, breakfast, bird retrieval, and boat ride for your hunt. We recommend bringing drinks, foul weather gear, snacks, shells, a North Carolina hunting license, and signed duck stamp.

Fish N Fowl Charters runs most of our guided duck hunts in the shallow, narrow sea channel of the Currituck Sound, which is a protected inlet of the Atlantic Ocean located just north of Outer Banks, NC. 

 

Outer Banks is a string of islands off the blue coast of North Carolina that are considered to be nothing short of a duck hunter’s paradise. The countless ducks, geese, and other water birds that rest, nest, feed, and winter throughout these islands will cluster around sounds, bays, ponds, pool, and open ocean, providing hunters with a great opportunity to land some waterfowl. 

 

And Fish N Fowl Charters promises you that the tranquil ocean views aren’t so bad either. 

 

Imagine sipping a cold drink on a spacious boat in the middle of the fresh sea and Carolina heat.

 

At Fish N Fowl Charters, we offer various hunting blinds allowing us to change our location throughout the day in order to get the best hunt for that day’s wind and bird patterns. Most of our blinds are open water so you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing boat ride throughout your waterfowl hunting experience. The surrounding islands in the area offer hunters a variety of birds to pursue from diver ducks, paddle ducks, and even swans.

 

Like we mentioned, each day is a different hunt depending on the weather and wind patterns but don’t get discouraged. Captain Zac Coyle is experienced and knowledgeable enough in duck hunting to give you the waterfowl hunting experience you’ve always dreamed of.

 

Shooting is 30 minutes before dawn so even if the birds aren’t flying that day, you’ll still get to experience a gorgeous Carolina sunrise on top of everything else Fish N Fowl Charters has to offer you during your adventurous waterfowl hunting journey.
