Alaska Waterfowl Statistics
With being submerged into the rocky backdrops of coastal Alaska, our vessel is remotely anchored, ready to hunt! Prior to first light, our hunters are escorted via boat to pristine bays for best hunting opportunities. Our guides will set out decoys while hunters prep for first light.
One of the most sought after ducks- the Harlequin, spends most of its lifetime in Alaska! Due to wintering in Kodiak, this specie will be a predominant focus specie during your hunt.
In addition to Harlequin’s, hunters will also have the opportunity to hunt Barrow Goldeneyes, Eiders, Old Squaws, and a variety in Scoters. In addition to our daily harvest, hunters will also have the opportunity at additional sea and puddle ducks throughout the day!
You can expect both pass shooting and calling birds in by both decoys and using duck calls. Due to low flying patterns, hunters are able to monitor shot patterns and make adjustments as the day progresses. For best hunting and shooting opportunities, hunters are frequently moved throughout the day.
Lawful Hunting: Above all, Ninilchik Charters promotes fair chase and lawful Alaska duck hunting at all times. As a result, we have a close working relationships with the Alaskan State Troopers, the Alaskan Department of Fish and Game, and the Coast Guard. In brief, we strive for a safe, lawful hunting experience. Likewise, all hunters are expected to follow Alaska hunting and fishing regulations, as we encourage local law enforcement agencies to visit us during the hunt. Ninilchik Charters has a good reputation with Alaska State Troopers and we conduct our hunts in a manner to maintain it.
Proxy Hunts:. Consequently, Proxy hunting is NOT allowed on our vessels. This means that you may not take an animal for another, even if that family member is present or under age. Hence, if they cannot take the animal themselves, then we recommend looking for a guided hunt or contacting another outfit.
Waterfowl Care + Shipping
In particular, we receive many questions about waterfowl care and shipping your collector ducks home. Here, this section will answer our most common questions.
If hunters decide to keep collector ducks for mounting, it’s recommended that hunters bring protective gear to case the birds in. This can range from seran wrap to panty hose stockings. This will help to preserve feathers and body form while being frozen.
Freezer space will be provided for hunters to keep all trophy birds and any meat they wish to pack home.
Generally by Friday morning, all birds need to be packed into shipping boxes, ready for your departing flight. Waxed shipping boxes are available on board and are included with your hunt for all collector birds and fish you wish to bring home.
Finally, be sure to check with Island Air and your other airline carriers about extra bag charges so there are no surprises getting multiple shipping boxes home.
