Does Big Creek Waterfowl Club guarantee me limits of Ducks and Geese?
No, and if anyone tries to, go somewhere else. Successful Waterfowl hunting is a combination of several very critical elements all coming together to create the desired outcome. We have taken ever measure practically possible to maximize those critical elements that we can control, which are: water, habitat, food, rest areas, and limited hunting pressure. Weather (here and further up north) have a dramatic impact on our population of Ducks and Geese in the area and which we have no control. What we do guarantee is a first class experience, excellent habitat, and blinds to optimize your success rate.
