What our sea duck hunting customers say

Jim Krupke

I have been hunting with Capt. Ernie & Rising Sun Outfitters the last couple of years. Simply stated he is the BEST ! Making sure every detail is perfect. TONS of quality birds in an AMAZING setting! TOP NOTCH equipment so that all hunters get to and from the hunting area safely ! I have been lucky to hunt many times up and down the east coast with many different guides and Ernie gets it!

Brad Olson

Rising sun outfitters works day and night to make sure they put you on the X. This giving you the best opportunity to experience sea duck hunting at its best. You will enjoy everything from the hunting, accommodations and scenery while making great friends in the process.

Mark Ihire

I've been fortunate enough to hunt with many outfitters and can honestly say RSO is as good as they come. Ernie absolutely knows how and where to hunt those Maine eiders. We had no trouble shooting our limits for all three days and I would recommend this hunt to anyone looking for an east coast eider hunt !
