For decades Hyde County has been known and one of the finest waterfowl hunting destinations on the famed eastern flyway. For years now, people have traveled to gun waterfowl in the swamps and impoundments of mainland Hyde County, NC and on the shoals,creeks and tributary’s of the Pamlico Sound. With thousands of waterfowl visiting the area annually, it comes as little surprise that this has become such a well known destination.

Chock full of waterfowling heritage that dates back to the pre-market gunning days, this area has a history of producing some of the best waterfowl hunting opportunities anywhere in the country. From hunting the tundra swan and Canada geese in fields and impoundments, to diving ducks on the Pamlico Sound, to puddle ducks in flooded grain fields and impoundments, Hyde County truly is a sportsman’s paradise.

Dennis Luszcz, the North Carolina Wildlife Commission’s waterfowl biologist, is in agreement. A dedicated waterfowl hunter as well as scientist, he also enjoys hunting during the mid-season.

“Other hunting seasons, warm temperatures and mosquitoes keep a lot of hunters out of the marshes,” Luszcz said. “But they are missing out on some good hunting. The wood duck harvest is high in November and there are a lot of other species in the state at that time. Green-winged teal and blue-winged teal numbers are high and there are ring-necks in the areas that traditionally have them.”

Pintails were once a mainstay of coastal duck hunting in November. The pintails are still in dusky plumage at that time and have been protected until December in recent seasons. However, there may be some light shed on the Atlantic Flyway pintail population that could help hunters get a chance at them during an earlier season.

“We have been helping out with a satellite tagging study of pintails,” Luszcz said. “Our pintails are going to eastern Canada instead of to the prairies. They may not represent as strong a population, but the breeding areas are more secure and may hold a separate population.

“But besides pintails, we get a good slug of other ducks in November. Widgeon are around. On the sounds there are a few scaup. The good thing about November is that the birds haven’t been educated. They haven’t been shot at much before they get here” (http://www.gameandfishmag.com/hunting/waterfowling-north-carolina/)
