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 timber, cypress sloughs, willow bottoms, flooded rice, beans, corn, milo & millet. 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 your Arkansas duck hunting experience is something you will never forget!

WHAT TO EXPECT

This is a SELF-GUIDED daily timber lease. The daily rate is for up to 6 hunters in your group.

You will meet one of our guides the afternoon before the morning of your hunt at a predetermined location near the hunting grounds.

Your guide will escort you to the hunting grounds. Not all timber holes have blinds in them, so be prepared to stand in water if necessary. Not all timber holes require a boat or 4 wheeler to access, so prior to your trip, communicate with your guide to determine if you need to bring a 4 wheeler or side-by-side or a duck boat.

Decoys will not be provided. We recommend bringing anywhere from 50 to 100 decoys for your spread. You are welcome to leave decoys out overnight in your timber hole however we are not responsible for any equipment or decoys left in the woods overnight.

If you have more than 6 people in your group, contact Mike (your Host) to talk about other options for your group. Because water levels change with changing weather patterns is important to stay in contact with us before your trip to determine if just a 4 wheeler is necessary or if a boat would be recommended. We cannot control weather conditions and at times prolonged subfreezing temperatures will cause the timber holes 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 or move to another hunting location (like flooded rice, beans, corn, or millet field).

The timber holes that we lease kill 500-800 birds on average per year. These are proven killing holes with a lot of success. 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 timber on a rotation. When you arrive your timber hole will have had at least 3-5 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 timber holes with water control structures and boards. 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 timber 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. Please note that we strictly enforce a 10 mph speed limit on the levy roads, field rows, and while boating in the timber throughout our farms. These are private holes, so you do NOT need to beat anyone to the hole.
