Upstate Guide Service Inc. is an insured and licensed waterfowling guide service that has been outfitting hunts in Upstate New York since 2003.  

The Central New York, Finger Lakes and Eastern Lake Ontario regions have some of the best waterfowling in the northeast!

Early Season Hunts —  October through November.

Early season hunts are backcountry puddle duck in marsh and small waters. Canoes and chest waders and small decoy spreads for mallards and wood ducks. These hunts are designed for one or two hunters. 

Late Season Hunts — Late December through January. 

Big water hunts from layout boats utilize large spreads on long lines to decoy scaup, redheads, ringneck and assorted other diver ducks in late winter conditions. Also, whistler, scoter and long-tailed duck hunts from customized Lund boat blind for one or two hunters.

Waterfowl hunting is a challenging pursuit steeped in tradition. The camaraderie of the hunt amidst spectacular wetland environments combine to make memorable and exciting adventures afield.  

Over the years I have introduced many beginners and guided many avid wildfowlers on fair chase hunts throughout Upstate New York. Hard-work, quality equipment and extensive scouting makes for great hunts!

UGS Inc. supports wetlands conservation and is a proud member of Syracuse Ducks Unlimited. Feel free to call anytime for more detailed information concerning a hunt or for advice planning your next waterfowling adventure in Upstate New York!
