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 and oxbow lakes. Hunting group sizes of four hunters is recommended. 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! After dinner enjoy a few hunting tales by the five pit or relax in your cabin. In the mornings a contiental breakfast is provided. Hunting parties will depart between 5.00 and 6.00 am for the woods. Hunts can last until noon if the group limit hasn't been fulfilled. Mallards will come to the river bottoms late morning on sunny days.
2013 - 2014 Recap
Last season was another great season in the White River bottoms. Kill numbers were right where they should have been; although no one particular hole was great all year. The refuge at Jacks Bay led the way at around 500 ducks, the cypress brake at 300, and Maddox Bay at 225 ducks in just six days of hunting. Other holes produced around 100 ducks. Looking at this years newly published information, the total breeding duck numbers was 45.6 million ducks, which tied the 2011 estimate for second largest population on record. Mallard production from the prairie pothole region, southern Manitoba, and southeastern Saskatchewan where our mallards migrate from looks to have increased breeding ducks and broods. Great news! Looking ahead the Mallard Index indicates a fall flight of approximately 13 million mallards for 2013-2014. This means for the 17th consecutive year, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has approved a 60-day hunting season for waterfowl!
