We hunt various parts of Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes, along with private property. We target Sea Ducks, Diving Ducks and Dabbling Ducks. Our equipment is state of the art and garnished by a 23′ Duck Water Boat, that goes where others can't. On calmer days our single man Bankes Pumpkinseed lay-out boats are truly an experience by itself. These little boats are U.S. Coast Guard rated for 300 lbs. and sturdy making it the perfect ambush duck hunt. Lodging is available upon request.
We enjoy our jobs because we are sportsmen ourselves. Customer service is our top priority, guaranteeing that we’ll do everything in our power to give you a safe and successful trip.
I have been hunting with my dad, Don, since I could walk. Although I hunt, fish and trap, waterfowl and turkey hunting are my favorite. When I’m not hunting I enjoy shooting my bow, and have competed successfully in archery tournaments for a number of years.
I have been guiding for 20 years and have hunted across the United States. When I’m not hunting turkeys or scouting ducks, I enjoy shooting my bow and introducing kids to the outdoors. My mission is to ensure you have a safe, successful and memorable hunt when you choose SouthValley Outfitters.
