Experience the thrill of a flock of Canada Geese circling, chattering, and locking up to land
in your decoy spread. Just when the geese sound as though they are going to join you in the
blind, the guide instructs, "Take em!"|
Finger Lakes Hunting Service can offer you and your hunting partners some of the finest
waterfowl hunting in the Northeast. Here in the beautiful New York Finger Lakes region, we have
access to farms in three counties surrounding the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.
hunts are conducted in
a legal and natural way from blinds over water, corn, soybean, wheat and alfalfa fields. We use
large decoy rigs featuring realistically mounted birds, full bodies, shells, windsocks and silhouettes.
With proven techniques like flagging and championship calling, we have enjoyed success
in decoying the wary Canada Goose and a dozen species of ducks. Our layout
setups in the late season snow are unmatched for action and excitement. With over
experience hunting waterfowl throughout the Northeast and on Maryland's Eastern Shore, we will do
our best to see that you get birds and enjoy the hunting experience.
MORE THAN JUST GEESE...
In addition to quality goose hunting, our farms are frequented by large flocks of Mallards and Black
Ducks. Action can be fast and furious as flocks of several hundred ducks buzz the decoys.
farms have been acquired that provide excellent opportunities for harvesting ducks as well as geese.
One of these properties was featured in the Sep/Oct 2001 issue of Ducks Unlimited Magazine.
See article entitled "Montezuma's Magnificent Muck Ducks" on page 68. "Now DU readers know what we've
known for years...that the NY Finger Lakes area is second to none in the Atlantic Flyway for duck
hunting," says Steve Lashbrook, co-owner of Finger Lakes Hunting Service.
