Georgia Duck Hunting

Georgia Duck Hunting at Black Creek Plantation

duck hunting at Black Creek Lodge

The hardest thing about duck hunting in Georgia is finding the ducks. We have taken care of that part. All you have to do is show up and shoot straight! Located in the heart of Georgia is the kaolin belt with its many ponds left over from the strip mining operation of years gone by. These ponds make an ideal environment for ducks and duck hunting. During the 2018-19 Georgia duck season we took mergansers, gadwall, ringnecks, mallards, bluebills, wood ducks, buffleheads and redheads with the vast majority being wood ducks and mallards. In addition we saw a pintail which is the first and only one I have ever seen in 20 years.

Duck Hunting Packages

Georgia duck hunting at Black Creek Lodge

The experience begins an hour before daylight as everyone gathers for coffee and go over details of the hunt. For hunters not staying at The Lodge we ask that you arrive at least one hour prior to sunrise. Hunters will be taken to their blinds in time for the first flight. We encourage you to bring your duck call and retrievers but please remember to keep both under control. The duck hunting blinds are built to accommodate up to five hunters and limited gear.

New This Year!

New this year we are offering released Mallard hunts in very limited quantities. This was brought on by the decline in Mallard numbers on the Eastern flyway and the reduction in the mallard limit for the upcoming season. These are fully colored birds that look the just the wild birds. Duck hunting is normally finished up around 10:00am but hunters are allowed to hunt until noon. 

These spots book up quickly. Please make your reservation well in advance. Reservations are on a first come basis. We look forward to having y’all come hunt with us! 

A guide can be arranged if desired. Please let us no in advance. If you group would like to join us the night before the hunt in The Lodge that can be arranged as well. Please let us know in advance and availability is limited.

Things to Remember:

  • All duck hunters MUST use Non-Toxic shot as required by the USFWS.
  • All duck hunters MUST have plugs in their guns. 3 shot max.
  • Hunters must use size 4 or larger shot to assure clean kills. Shells are available for purchase at the lodge before your hunt if you need them.
  • Hunters should be dressed in camo if possible and/or have waders. Face mask or paint is recommended. If you don’t have waders there are blinds that don’t require them. Please let us know as these are limited.
  • If your party needs a guide please let us know at the time of booking. The additional cost is $150/guide.
  • We are conveniently located in Central Georgia just 90 min. from Atlanta and 30 min. East of Macon. Lodging is available in our modern hunting lodge with all the amenities of home. Duck hunting can easily be combined with an afternoon of either quail hunting or wild hog hunting. Call your friends and make a weekend out of it!
