Hog Island Point is located off the coast of Cedar Island between Cedar Island National Wildlife Refuge and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge.  This area of North Carolina’s Inner Banks is a mecca for waterfowl, including Brant, Tundra Swan, Canada Geese, Pintails, Scaup (bluebills), Redheads, Canvasbacks, and sea ducks. Our coastal waters, marshes, and ponds make it a water fowler’s dream boasting a variety of diving ducks and puddlers.  Hunts can be arranged for you and your guests in our four duck blinds, each accommodating three people.  The private island is accessible only by boat, which we can provide.  There is a house on the island, and while we don’t house people in it at this point in time, it’s good for getting warm, eating, and getting out of the (hopefully) bad weather!

Our acreage along the Tar River in Tarboro, NC consists of scattered beaver ponds, swamps, wooded marshes with flooded timber, and waterside grasslands that are great for getting a mixed bag of puddle or dabbling ducks, including Mallards and Wood Ducks (Woodies). You'll also have the opportunity to hunt other wild inland ducks such as Widgeon, Black Ducks, Teal, Ring-necks, Gadwall, and an occasional Pintail. Dependant on your hunt date, you might have the chance to harvest a Tundra Swan along with Canadian Geese.  We also offer released Mallard duck hunts for your shooting enjoyment, at $25 per duck with no limit.
