About Muddy Marsh Outfitters

Muddy Marsh Outfitters invites you to come share a memorable outdoor experience with them on Maryland's  Eastern Shore. Since 1992, Muddy Marsh has been guiding for sika deer.  Over 20 years experience in strictly  guiding for sika gives Muddy Marsh the opportunity to learn and understand the habits of this mysterious little deer. They also have been involved with working directly with tagging studies done by the Maryland DNR. Click here for information on the DNR website, for more information about Maryland's wild Sika deer.

Muddy marsh is actively involved with supporting local sportsman's groups  such as the Maryland Bowhunters Society, the Rockey Mountain Elk Foundation and the  Pennsylvania Bowhunter Association.  Muddy marsh Outfitters has hosted hunters Bob Foulkrod and Jim Shockey. Both have hunted more then once with Muddy Marsh as they have been bitten by the 'Sika Challenge' bug. We truly try to not over hunt or pressure this precious resource and hope you enjoy this unique opportunity.

Muddy Marsh guides on 1500-2000 acres of private property. The terrain is mixed as sika can be found to frequent farmland, oak flats, pine thickets and of course the Dorchester Swamp lands. Sika Rut occurs in October, Unlike whitetail hunting and having prime times, Sika sightings and opportunities occur throughout  the entire season. Opportunities run pretty steady, so the best time to hunt sikas is  when you can come sit in the stand. We recommend any day from the opening day till the close of season.
