Finz & Featherz has partnered up with the California Waterfowl Association to bring you some of the best duck and goose hunting that Northern California has to offer. When we put this trip together we looked no further than the Merlo Waterfowl Company.

Established in 1955 the Merlo Waterfowl Company is a family owned and operated full service waterfowl outfitter with over 70 years of experience. They are also farmers and cultivators of the land they hunt and provide some of the best water fowl destinations on the Pacific Flyway.

Our staff will shuttle you up north to the private lodging provided for you and your celebrity host. Once there you will enjoy a great meal and get to know your star and the rest of the staff. As the morning arrives we turn you over to the guides from the Merlo Waterfowl Company for a fun filled day of hunting. Like Finz & Featherz, the Merlo Waterfowl Company believes in quality and professionalism with a custom experience tailored to you. As the days hunt winds down we head back for a wonderful dinner and some "hangin out". The next morning you're back at it for more ducks and geese before this adventure ends. Don't forget your camera for some great photos, and remember, all food and beverages are provided so be prepared to tell us what you like. You will then be shuttled back to the airport for your trip back home and a smile ear to ear.

Prices starting at $1,200 per person, contact us for more info.
