Valdez Sea Duck & Diver Huntvaldez_new_1

 

Valdez has some of the best wing shooting in all of North America.  It has the largest populations of the most unique and most highly sought after trophy birds, such as the Harlequin and Barrow’s Goldeneye.   During our trips you will have the opportunity to bag upwards of sixteen species of ducks and geese.  On most trips seven to nine species is very common.  We not only offer high quality duck hunts at a great rate, but we also offer them in one of the most beautiful locations in the world!

Our main targeted species on our Valdez  hunts are harlequin, barrows goldeneye, black  scoter, surf scoter, old squaw, common mergansers, bufflehead, great scuap, and  red-breasted mergansers.  You will also  have chances at harvesting a variety of other species depending on the season’s  weather.

Along with the waterfowl found in Valdez we offer the option  to head to the mountains for a day and hunt ptarmigan in the mountain passes  around Valdez.  This is a great way to spend  the day if you have harvest all the waterfowl you came for.

Our philosophy has always been that it is your trip and  let’s make it happen!
