Our legendary puddle duck hunting is conducted on our forty drained and planted impoundments. They encompass several hundred acres and over 18,000 bushels of seed. These impoundments have been planted in standing corn, sorghum, millet, and moist soil plants creating a smorgasbord of food sources for the ducks.
Maryland's Eastern Shore is world famous for its Canada goose hunting and the Chester River has long been known as the Canada goose capital of the shore. The gun club manages approximately eight miles of waterfront along the Chester River mostly preserved as sanctuary areas. This allows us to manage our waterfowl from the roost to our feeding areas and back.
The primary species harvested are mallards and black ducks. Wood ducks, green wing teal, widgeon, pintail, canvasback and lesser scaup make up the rest of the bag depending on the time of the year and areas being hunted. Maryland currently has a 60 day season with a five bird limit.
