The success rate for the last couple of years has averaged around 65% for the 10-day license. Up to six can apply as a group. Guests that do draw tags often experience a once-in-a-lifetime waterfowl experience especially on guided hunts. It is not uncommon for our guests to shoot limits of ducks including: Mallards, pintails, canvasbacks, redheads, wood ducks, and giant Canada geese. Guests can expect to draw tags at least every other year when applying every year.
Self-guided waterfowl hunting at Double P Ranch: We provide decoys, duck boats, and layout blinds for our guests to use. The Double P guides will assist the groups to spots in and around the lodge. Our guides are NOT able to help with guests hunting on any public areas.
Guided Waterfowl hunts: Most of our guests hire a waterfowl guide for a day or two. The luxury of a guided hunt is the guide scouts extensively prior to each day's hunt. The rate for guided hunts averages around $150/day/guest based on a party of four.
