Your home base will be our waterfront family lodge on Lake Mattamuskeet in Hyde County. This winter resting area in the middle of the Atlantic Flyway is home to one of the largest, most diverse populations of waterfowl in the country. We hunt the entire eastern North Carolina Pamlico Sound area including Dare, Hyde, Tyrell, Washington and Beaufort counties.

We hunt private blinds, open water float blinds and we do open water duck hunting. We hunt for diver ducks, puddle ducks, sea ducks, geese and swans (note permit required for swans).
