Scissors Rig Hunts

The Hunts

The Scissor's rig Hunt is an opportunity for 2- 4 four hunters to gun together from a fully concealed, portable boat blind.  Conceived in the Currituck sound of legendary waterfowl fame, the scissors rig has made way to N.C and left a mark.  Fully concealed behind a floating island of Pine boughs and Juniper, hunters scan the skies for both puddle ducks and divers. The versatility of the rig allows for freedom to adjust daily to where the ducks are. The hunt begins at a designated landing where hunters are transported to the gunning grounds. After Blind setup and decoy, everyone is encouraged to enjoy the beautiful waterfowler's sunrise and be ready for the ducks.  The hunt ends at 1  pm or when a limit is reached. The blind is a perfect station for videographers and digital photography.

When the salty water of the Pamlico freezes on your decoys, it is time to "hunker" down and wait for the divers.
