Carolina Duck Hunting, Testimonials from Jennette"s Guide
Gibbs is an excellent guide for swan and sea ducks. He was
committed to providing my son, and I with enjoyable and successful
hunting experiences. The swan is an awesome waterfront trophy,
and Tadpole will make sure you can collect one.
College Station, Texas
hunted with Teddy “Tadpole” Gibbs for t he past
two years. I’ve hunted with others in North Carolina,
but if you want to hunt with the best you need to hunt with
Teddy. Two years ago we shot very mature trophy Swans by 8:
30am. The second day we sea duck hunted. The two of us shot
our limit of Surf and Black Scoters by 10:30am. The third
day we also sea duck hunted and shot our limits of sea ducks
by 8:20am. Last years we only had time to Swan hunt the 17th
of December. We both shot our trophy swans in the morning.
Teddy is a very dedicated guide and he will give you 110%.
If he doesn’t out you on t he birds, no one will.
had occasion to hunt with Teddy Gibbs in January 2009 for
both Sea Ducks and Tundra Swans. Both hunts were outstanding.
If the was a complaint, it was the shoots went all way too
fast. The Sea Ducks were hunted from a comfortable, large
blind towed by his big boat out into the Sound. I didn’t
know you could flag for ducks but it was done and was quite
efficient. Amazing! Slots were all around the blind allowing
one to observe the approaching birds without being seen until
time to shoot.
The swan hunt took place on a very large harvested field near
his residence. The blind was a platform, well hidden by Willow
cuttings down in a ditch. A hundred or more whole body Swan
decoys were placed on both sides of the ditch. Decoy placement
took a lot longer the hunt itself.
Mr. Gibbs took excellent care of both the Sea Ducks I wanted
for my collection and of the Swan I got. He made sure all
the rules and regulation (tags, permits, signatures, etc)
were observed so there was no problem returning with the specimens.
Housing was provided in a clean, warm motel where he picked
me up each morning in plenty of time. Meals were at local
cafes or restaurants and of high quality and reasonably priced.
Finally, I am 70 yeas old and I have difficulty in getting
around (arthritis) but he went out of his way to make sure
I was comfortable and without pain. The hunts all involved
very short walks.
