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, milo, millet, flooded timber, cypress sloughs, and willow bottoms. We have over 30 pit blinds in flooded agricultural fields that we hunt on a rotation. There will be at least 3-5 rest days between hunt groups to ensure the best opportunity at providing top quality self-guided duck and goose hunting opportunities. 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 and have pit blinds available for lease from Big Lake refuge down to Marion, AR over to Jonesboro, Newport & Augusta, AR.

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

WHAT TO EXPECT

This is a NON-GUIDED daily self-guided pit lease.

You will meet one of our guides the afternoon before the morning of your hunt at a predetermined location near the hunting grounds. All hunters in your group will be required to sign a release of liability waiver prior to hunting. Your guide will escort you to the hunting pit. The pit will be hunt ready when you arrive.

Decoys will not be provided. We recommend bringing anywhere from 50 to 150 decoys for your spread. You are welcome to leave decoys out overnight in your field however we are not responsible for any equipment or decoys left in the fields overnight.

We also recommend bringing an ATV or side-by-side to get to and from the pits. The pit will be yours only for the # of days you have it leased.

The pit will be fully brushed up and the field will be holding water.

These are 16 foot 6 man pits with either roll-top lids or flip-top lids and a dog box. 6 person max. If you have more than 6 people in your group, contact Mike (the Host) to talk about other options or larger pits for your group.

Fields will be flooded in 3″ up to 15″ of water depending on location.

We cannot control weather conditions and at times prolonged subfreezing temperatures will cause the flooded fields to ice over.

You are welcome to break ice, run ice eaters or mallard machines to keep a hole open or hunt full body decoys over the ice. We do not offer refunds due to subfreezing weather conditions.

Our pits that we lease kill 500-800 birds on average per year. These are proven killing holes with a lot of success. Depending on crop rotation, the fields will be in flooded rice, beans, milo or millet. We do not allow hunting after 3 PM CDT on any of our farms.

Several of our farms are roosting holes and will roost anywhere from 5K to 25K birds every evening. We do this to ensure quality shooting throughout the season. We hunt our fields on a rotation. When you arrive your field will have had at least 3 days or more rest. As any knowledgeable duck hunter knows, if you shoot the roost in the evening, the birds that are using your farm will leave and NOT come back! All shooting must end by 3 PM CDT.

Our guide service manages the water level in our flooded fields with water control structures and levee systems. You are NOT allowed under any circumstance to mess with, modify, move or adjust any of the water control structures or boards. Any changes to water levels in the fields must be done by one of our guides ONLY.

You are welcome to bring your retrieving dog and any motion decoys like mallard machines or spinning wing decoys if you would like. Most of our pits are within a 300-600 yard walk from a gravel road. An ATV is not necessary, however, if you would like to bring an ATV to get back and forth from the pit to your truck, please feel free to bring your own ATV. Please note that we strictly enforce a 10 mph speed limit on the levy roads throughout our farms.
