Our Hunting Areas
|WHITE RIVER NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE: The White River NWR has the
largest concentration of wintering Mallard ducks in the Mississippi flyway.
It encompassess 160,000 acrea made up primarily of hardwood bottomlands
with man oxbow lakes, all within the floodplain of the lower White River.
The refuge was established in 1935. Ninety miles of the White River lies
within the refuge boundaries. There are 356 lakes totaling 4,000 acres,
forestland of 154,000 acres, and grassland of 1,000 acres.
|The refuge is divided into five (5) hunt zones. The U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service conducted a lottery drawing of applicants that met
stringent qualifactions, some of which included experiences and safety training. We have been selected to offer hunts in the Maddox Bay Hunt Zone. This is a very remote green timber bottomland with limited access. With flood water from the White River this area has amazing green timber mallard hunting. Also hunters can enjoy hunting in the Jacks Bay Zone with guide Kurt James. This zone is a levied impoundment that can be artificially flooded providing 3500 acres of flooded timber. At flood stage this gives us 30,000 acres of flooded timber.
| Oxbow lakes with cypress trees along the bank. Some of these large bottomland giants are over a thousand years old. Cypress brake hunting is done standing knee deep in water in cypress flats.
