NEW BLIND MAPS

Be sure to review the new BLIND MAP.  All numbers and locations have changed.  Traditionally unused blinds have been removed to allow for respacing of existing blinds.  All blinds will now have greater distances between neighboring blinds.  We hope that this will reduce pressure, eliminate interference of neighboring hunters and provide better hunting on the park.  See Blind Map at the following links in color or black and white.

Mallard habitat use during autumn and winter

Welcome to PaDuck.com

We are committed to preserve Waterfowling and protect the privileges of Duck Hunters!

Greater and Lesser Scaup are common among the migration through Lake Erie.

Each year the shores of Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie become alive with tradition and a spectacle that has been written about in countless documentations. Its the fall flight of ducks and geese through the breaking waters of Lake Erie.

Past Generations sat with us and told stories of braving the elements to bring home a meal to the table. They told us stories of patients and diligence that with time become more of a classroom lesson then a story. Sportsmanship added with conservation as well as conversation make the time we share on and off shore more lasting then time itself. Whether its with family, friend, or man’s best friend we pass a little time in nature’s realm the same way our ancestors have in the past.
The Northwestern Pennsylvania Duck Hunters’ Association is committed to see that future generations have the same opportunity to make friends, provide a meal, and spend some time back in nature.

Club President, Patrick Tarasovich helping the Game Commission with summer banding projects.
