Arkansas Guided Duck Hunts & Sportsmans Lodge
Welcome to the Arkansas Delta. We are located on the Southern end of the Grand Prairie, only 30 minutes southeast of Stuttgart. Large numbers of Mallards winter in our area, right here along the White River in the heart of the Mississippi flyway.
When the temperature drops and the leaves start to fall, the winter rains soon
fill the bottoms, and you know the flocks of Mallards are on their way. You are invited to share a morning with us and see for yourself as big groups of Greenheads drop through the treetops. You'll soon know why the Grand Prairie is known as the "Duck Capitol of the World".
About Our Hunts
All hunts are morning hunts over decoys with trained retrievers and experienced guides. We hunt standing in flooded timber, or in large blinds or pits in rice fields. Most river hunting is done from a large blind boat or from our twenty-four foot pontoon boat blind. We offer affordable hunts for parties of any size with lodging for up to twenty hunters. We have two hunting lodges for sleeping arrangements adjacent to the main duck hunting lodge where you will enjoy great southern cooking!
2012 - 2013 Season Dates
Last season once again proved to be another great season in the White River bottoms. Heavy rains in November gave us plenty of water which in turn always helps our hunting. Refuge hunting groups contributed to 700+ kills for the second consecutive year in around 35 hunt days. For the coming season mallard numbers are excellent for the fall flight, USF&WS counts for total population were estimated 48 million breeding pairs strong, upper Mississippi Flyway has a drought induced poor corn and soybean crop that will leave very little waste grain, and water could be limited all the way down from Canada to the gulf coast. Those conditions could lead to huge success this winter for us hunting in the White River basin and the ability to pump water to flood the timber!
