Northeast North Carolina has been known for its duck hunting with the Currituck Sound being no exception. For over four generations, my family has been guiding on bodies of water such as Coinjock Bay, North River, and the Currituck Sound. North Carolina’s duck hunting has been on a rising demand for all hunters. We at Fourth Generation Outfitters specialize in waterfowl hunting. A short boat ride will take you to one of our large blinds ranging from open water to marsh blinds. We also hunt from a float blind called a scissor-rig, or our 1 man Layout Boats. Hunting location is determined by the guides and is based off of weather conditions. Some of the ducks you can expect to see are puddle ducks such as teal, wigeon, gadwall, mallards, and black ducks. Also divers such as blackheads, ringnecks, buffle heads, canvasbacks, and redheads. Our duck seasons consist of a 2 day season in October, and starts again in November with a 2 week break in December and continues until January 31st. Northeast North Carolina offers an early teal season east of Highway 17 in September as well. We only allow four hunters per guide to ensure safety. We welcome father/son/daughter/mother hunts also. Included in the hunt is transportation to and from the blind, the guide, and the setup of our decoys.
All North Carolina Duck Hunts end at 1:00 pm, as this allows time for scouting in the afternoons.
Different types of waterfowl hunts may be combined on our North Carolina Duck hunts. Such as a swan/duck/or goose combo.

It is no secret that Virginia holds some of the best guided diver & Sea duck hunts on the Atlantic Flyway.
We hunt the Lower James River, Back Bay, and Lower Chesapeake Bay out of our Sissor rig, Bush Blinds or layout boats. Hunting location is determined by the guides and based off of weather conditions. The Canvasback is one of the most sought-after ducks. They like big bodies of water, and sit in large rafts of ducks. It takes a big decoy spread for one of our Virginia guided diver hunts. Our Sea Duck hunts are a lot of fun. You get lots of shooting in, as these are tough birds to knock down! We recommend #1 or BB shot for Sea Ducks. In Addition to the canvasback, & Sea Ducks, Virginia also holds lots of Buffle Heads, Blue bills, Red heads, and Brant, just to name a few.
