Your Experience

We strive to ensure our hunters receive the best duck hunting experience that North East Arkansas has to offer. We hunt on over 22,000 acres of flooded rice, beans, timber, willow bottoms and cypress sloughs. We are where the ducks are! We offer top-notch accommodations, guides, and locations. The farms we own and lease hold huge numbers of waterfowl. We are uniquely situated between several well-known WMA’s and refuges that winter millions of waterfowl during the winter. North East Arkansas has quickly become a mecca for some of the best duck hunting in the country and we are sitting at “GROUND ZERO”!

We offer a family-friendly environment for you to enjoy duck hunting at its finest. We are just 25 minutes north of Memphis, TN in Crittenden County Arkansas.

Endorsed by GreenHead.net and Ultimate Waterfowl Hunting we are here to make sure you your Arkansas duck hunting experience is something you will never forget!

WHAT TO EXPECT

You will arrive at the duck lodge anytime after 6:00 PM CDT the evening before your duck hunt begins. Please plan on eating supper on your own evening of arrival. There will be snacks, appetizers, sodas, etc available the evening you arrive but a full supper will not be served the 1st evening of your arrival.

Breakfast, Lunch & Supper will be provided on your hunt dates. On the last day of your hunt, breakfast and lunch will be provided & checkout is by 2 PM CDT.

Each guest in your party will be given a bedroom to unload your belongings. We pair 2 to 4 people to a room and you will NOT room with someone you don’t know.

We ask that all of your muddy gear stay in the mud room. The front porch has been converted into a custom, heated mud room for all of your dirty, muddy gear.

The next morning you will wake up to a home-cooked breakfast that includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, coffee, juice, etc.

Plan on eating breakfast around 4:50 AM and heading out to the hunting grounds by 5:30 AM.

Depending on the size of your group you may ride with one of our guides or follow behind in your own vehicle to the hunting grounds. You will be driven by ATV/UTV from the parking areas on our farms to the hunting spots by your guides. If hunting flooded timber or river, it may require a boat ride and/or some walking through water to access the hunting spot.

We hunt a wide variety of properties that range from flooded agricultural fields, cypress breaks and sloughs, flooded timber, flooded willow swamps and rivers. Your guide will be scouting every afternoon to put you in the best possible place for a successful hunt for the next day. Several of our spots do NOT require waders to hunt, however if you want to have the most flexibility and be able to move to where the ducks are, bring your waders. Without waders, it will limit your options to flooded agricultural fields, cypress breaks & sloughs.

Your guide will provide all of the decoys, hunting dog and will be an accomplished caller. However, don’t take this to mean you are not welcome to call also or bring your own dog. You are encouraged to dust off that duck call and help work in ducks! If you are a beginner, your guides are happy to help teach you a few tricks of the trade.

Our goal is to make sure everyone has an opportunity to kill their limits and enjoy a true Arkansas duck hunting experience! After the hunt you will be escorted by your guide back to the hunting lodge where food will be cooking. Your guides will log, clean, bag, label and freeze the days birds in order for you to legally transport back to your home.

Each evening, your guides will head out to scout for the next days' hunt. You can plan on either hanging out at the lodge enjoying some skeet shooting, pool, darts, TV and a few cocktails or there are several nearby attractions that clients enjoy checking out.

Our newest attraction that duck hunters have to experience is a visit to the new Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center only 25 minutes away. It is Bass Pro Shops largest superstore featuring a treasury of duck hunting history and memorabilia. The Memphis Pyramid has been converted into the largest wildlife interactive museum focusing on raising awareness of wetlands and waterfowl conservation, emphasizing the importance of rivers and wetlands to society and illustrating the role that hunters play in conserving wildlife habitat and the waterfowl resources. It’s a must-see if you are going to be in AR hunting with us this year!

You can take a 10-minute drive to Lake Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge has a nice viewing platform and it can hold over 1,000,000 birds during certain times during the migration. We highly recommend taking a camera and going to watch the sunset from the viewing platform. It’s an unbelievable sight!

If you are a waterfowl fanatic like most of us, you will definitely want to check out DNW Outdoors in Jonesboro, AR. It’s about a 30-minute drive but worth the drive.

We plan on eating supper each evening around 5:30 PM CDT. We eat good, so hope you have a healthy appetite!

Your guides will generally turn in pretty early around 9:00 PM but you are welcome to stay up and enjoy the lodge as long as you would like, just be ready at 4:50 AM for breakfast. The last day of the hunt will wrap up by 12:00 noon. Check-out time is by 2:00 PM CDT last day of the hunt. Breakfast and lunch will be served last day of the hunt also.

When you are at our lodge, make yourself at home. You are welcome to help yourself to any food, drink, or snacks in the lodge. This is your Arkansas Duck Hunting Vacation! Enjoy it!
