More Information About Us And The Property.

We are the premier waterfowl outfitter here in Stuttgart, Arkansas also known as the duck hunting capital of the world. Known as the heart of the Mississippi flyway. Chad Lloyd is the owner and handles the day to day operations. We have been serving hunting enthusiasts for over 14 years now. We were born and raised here. We know this land like the backs or our hands which allows us to make every hunt an incredible experience for our customers. The grand prairie area is a large wintering area for millions of waterfowl of every species migrating here every year. This is the mecca for ducks and geese in Arkansas. We are between two major flyways; the Bayou Meto WMA and the White River National Wildlife Refuge. That being said, we are right in the middle of the largest flyway in the Stuttgart, Arkansas area. We currently have 28 duck blinds to choose from on an Arkansas guided duck hunt, or an Arkansas self guided duck hunt. We have hand picked these areas over many years and now cover over 40,000 acres of prime duck and goose hunting property within minutes of Macks Praire Wings and 20 minutes from our lodges. We offer guided and self guided duck hunts in flooded timber, swamps, oxbowl lakes and flooded fields. We also offer guided snow goose and Specklebelly goose hunts in flooded and dry agricultural fields. At Arkansas County Guide Service we offer everything for your duck and goose hunting needs!

See What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

In December of 2017 my cousin and I took one of the duck hunting trips we have always wanted - to Stuttgart, Arkansas.  We had purchased a hunt at a local Ducks Unlimited banquet to hunt with Arkansas County Guide Service.  Since we had never done anything like this,  there were a lot of questions that we had.  Owner Chad Lloyd was extremely helpful in getting our hunt all set up.  There we a couple conflicts that came up, but Chad did everything possible to make sure we were set-up with what we wanted and even a bit beyond.  Our hunting experience lived up to everything we had hoped for.  We hunted 2 days in a buckbrush pond and one day over a flooded rice field - both set ups were first class.   The guides Chad set us up with were very personable and knowledgeable.  Our guide for the first two days really stood out to us, he was a lot of fun to hunt with, and could he blow a call.  His personality made for a great time in the blind.  Sure we shot ducks, plenty to make two Iowa boys who don't get a lot of shooting back home very happy, but it was just the full experience Chad and his group gave us that stood out.  We have already booked our December 2018 hunt with Chad and look forward to many more hunts in the future with Arkansas County Guide Service.

Traditional duck hunting, that’s what you’ll find at Arkansas County Guide Service. Flooded rice fields, dry fields, reservoirs or buck brush in the creek. They have what the birds want. I’ve hunted around this area for years and when I ran into this outfit, I stopped looking. Chad and his guides have gone above and beyond to make my hunts successful. I hunt with them two to three times a year and I will tell you, Chad is a people person. He is easy to talk to and express needs or concerns. He has never made me or my groups feel like it’s about the money. He wants you to shoot ducks. He and his guides know the area well and scout daily to put you on birds. The guides are polite, courteous, and well mannered gentlemen. They also run the best dogs and call like champions. I’m pretty sure a couple of them compete. I feel after hunting around, I get more than I pay for with them. What I’m saying is, I stay at a nice lodge, have good hunts, never feel mislead or misguided and they treat you like buddies. Bottom line is you can pay more somewhere else, but I promise, You can’t get better service.
