Algonquian Indians called this area “Carotank” meaning “land of the wild goose.” Today, it is known as Currituck. The area remains synonymous with waterfowling in more than name alone. Situated on the Atlantic Flyway, Currituck Sound is an ideal stopover for migrating ducks, geese and swans.
North Carolina Canada goose season is broken up into 2 different seasons. The first is the resident goose season. This season runs September 1-30. (Excluding Sundays) Each year it continues to rise. We hunt over the Currituck Sound in a Scissor Rig (float blind), in stationary bush blinds, or agriculture fields. We can accommodate up to 5 hunters at a time on these hunts. The limit is 15 geese per hunter during the September season. Your guns will need to be plugged as we are on the east side of HWY 17. This is due to the September teal season. We do offer a teal hunt during this early teal season.
The second North Carolina Goose season is our late season. This is called "The NE Hunt Zone" There is a NE Zone Permit each hunter must have in order to hunt geese during the late goose season. They're $10.00 and can be bought over the counter locally, or through www.ncwildlife.org The limit is 1 goose per hunter. The late Canada Goose season runs for 15 days. (January 15-30 time frame) We can accommodate up to 8 hunters durning this season. We get a good push of lesser migrating Canada Gesse during the late season. We mainly hunt fields over our GHG full body decoys, and A-Frame blinds. A late season goose hunt is fun by itself, but also is a great time of year to add a swan hunt to the late season goose. (Please see swan page for more info about swan permits)
The season is September 1 through 30.
Fourth Generation Outfitters takes pride in their heritage. With four generations in their blood, they're continuing the tradition of hunting Canada geese out of their scissor rig.
The scissor rig dates back to the market gunning days. Sink boxes have been outlawed in much of the state, but Currituck County has kept the scissor rig style of hunting alive. Fourth Generation Outfitters has taken this method of hunting and perected it!
In addition to the September goose season, northeast North Carolina also offers an early September Teal season in mid-September. During this time hunters may have the opportunity to shoot 6 Teal per hunter and your limit of Geese for no extra charge.
Please come join the Fourth Generation Outfitters crew, and experience a piece of history.
The season is January 15th-30th.
Each Hunter will need a NE Zone Permit in order to hunt geese during the late goose season. They're $10.00 and can be bought over the counter locally, or through www.ncwildlife.org The limit is 1 goose per hunter.
Hunters are asked to call at one day before the hunt to ensure birds are here for their hunt. If no birds are here during the time of your hunt a later date can be arranged.

Here At Fourth Generation Outfitters, we take pride in our life style. As hunters we all take so much out of the wild. We need to give back when we can. This video was to show our local government of Currituck County, that we at Fourth Generation Outfitters and other hunters will stand and fight for our future in waterfowl hunting, so that our kids and the next generation can experience what we love...
