Bird processing fees are not included in the price of hunt packages as it is a variable that we cannot predict. These fees run approximately $2.50 for ducks and $3.00 for geese. Should you elect to not take birds home, cleaning and processing fees must still be paid. We will assist you with making donations of the meat to area charities.
If you would like to clean your own birds at no charge, feel free to do so. We will assist you with storage until your departure.
We have shotguns for rent at the lodge featuring the latest and greatest including Remington Versa Max and V-12's along with a host of over/unders. Shotgun shells are available here at the lodge.
For guests wanting to ship gear here to the lodge ahead of their trip, our shipping/receiving address is 109 W. Austin, Seadrift, Texas 77983. Please schedule a pick up for your gear as well for return to you.
Many of our duck hunting locations are accessed by airboat depending upon water levels and difficulty of access in the back marsh. We recommend that your gear be securely stowed in waterproof bags. There can be no loose items in this boat.
