Gunning Maine’s shores for sea ducks.
By Ron Peach
“There will be plenty of eiders and scoters, as well as black ducks, wood ducks, and some mallards. The old squaws don’t come down until later in the season,” Troy said.
I was talking to Troy Fields with Traditions Guide Service in Shapleigh, Maine about early season sea duck hunting along the coast of southern Maine. I was hoping to combine a late October sea duck hunt with some puddle duck hunting while viewing the New England fall colors and scenery. “Plenty of eiders and scoters”- that had a nice sound to it.
When I asked about lodging, Troy offered his fully furnished cottage, next to his house on the shore of Mousam Lake.
The plans were beginning to take shape, and when I inquired about buying fresh lobsters from a commercial dock, Troy replied, “I’ve got a license for five traps and can set them a few days before you get here.”
With all of this plus the offer to use his kayak on the lake for puddle duck hunting, it was beginning to sound too good. We’ve all had well-prepared plans that just didn’t turn out as we were hoping, but I was ready to put these plans to the test.
After introductions were made with Troy and his engaging young daughter Hannah (a terror on the local trout fishery, I would learn), we transferred my gear from my pickup to the cottage and Troy related details for the next morning’s hunt. Later he was going to go in to work for the afternoon and evening.
A 42-year-old full of energy and enthusiasm, Troy works full time as a nutritionist at the Dover Rehab Living Center in Dover, New Hampshire. Besides guiding for sea ducks, he also guides for deer, turkey, moose, fishing, and more throughout the year. Growing up in southern Maine, he knows the area well and puts that knowledge to good use.
