Ocracoke Native Duck Hunting offers world-class curtain box duck hunting. Fifth-generation island guide Farris O'Neal is a U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captain with close to 25 years of duck-hunting experience on the Pamlico Sound. He transports hunters by boat to curtain blinds where they are placed at eye level with the water. All blinds are expertly set up with decoys to attract brant, pintail, red head, black head, widgeon and more. Hunting seasons vary from late fall through mid-winter.
