The Duck Hunt / The Schedule:
All hunts are fully guided with the goal of providing a safe and enjoyable experience. Most hunts will be in flooded rice fields or flooded timber. The morning hunt begins about thirty minutes before dawn, and the guides hope to show every hunter what they mean by “The Black Tornado.” Hunting groups or parties are not mixed.
They have over 15,000 acres of private farm, timberland and flooded fields. They also have access to the 13,000 flooded acres of the Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area and 157,000 acres of bottomland on the White River National Wildlife Refuge.
They prefer not to duck hunt in the afternoons to allow the ducks to return to the fields to feed and rest. Afternoon options are a drive to the Mack’s Prairie Wings store in Stuttgart, a quail or pheasant hunt with their partner operator, goose hunts when the birds are there or relaxing.
Afternoon duck hunts are an option if you did not limit out on your morning hunt.
