Arkansas Duck Hunts

After many years of guiding duck hunts in stuttgart Arkansas we have hand picked very prime locations to hunt around the grand prairie. We have options for everyone, whether it’s duck hunting in green timber, buck brush swamps, cypress brakes or flooded rice and bean fields. All duck blinds that are in flooded timber or timber style hunts will accommodate 6-10 hunters per blind. Our guided duck hunts will have transportation to and from the blind provided by either boat, atv, utv or truck. The hunts will start at legal shooting hours in the morning and will end at legal shooting hours on evening hunts. Guided duck blinds will have anywhere from 100-500 decoys out per blind, several mojos, mallard machines and any other gadget that may help to ensure a successful hunt and a memory that can’t be forgotten. Although we hunt with motion decoys sometimes we may go back to old school spreads depending on what’s working at the time. All field blinds range anywhere from a 6-8 person setup. We duck hunt primarily out of pit blinds and mobile sled blinds. Field guided duck hunts are offered in rice, bean, and proven grains we plant. (milo or millet) Transportation to and from these blinds are also provided. Decoy setups vary with the migration, in fields we run anywhere from 100-200 decoys, several mojos and jerk strings. Although no hunts are guaranteed Arkansas County Guide Service will put forth the extra effort and time to put you on birds day after day with knowledgeable guides, great locations and several options to choose from.

Arkansas Self Guided Duck Hunts

We offer self guided duck hunt packages for our daily duck blind with lodging. All hunts will be in flooded rice or bean fields with pit blinds or sled blinds. We furnish a well brushed blind with one dozen decoys. It is recommended to bring at least 6 dozen decoys of your own along with any wind or motorized decoys for your spread.  Self guided duck blinds will hold six hunters and if a group has six in it they can lodge and lease a blind for $140 a day. Self guided duck hunt  blind leases can hunt all day if you want to, four-wheelers are recommended for transportation in and out fields.  If you have never duck hunted Arkansas before it is strongly encouraged that you book a guided duck hunt first before booking a self-guided duck hunt to learn how to hunt in our great state, and to ensure that you're doing everything correct to have the best duck hunt possible.

Arkansas Specklebelly Goose Hunts

We offer both morning and afternoon specklebelly goose hunts. These hunts take place in flooded and dry agricultural fields in layout blinds, pit blinds, A frame blinds, or wearing white suits. The situation of how we hunt specklebelly's vary with the weather conditions and how the migration is at that point in the season.  For a typical morning hunt the guide will give information on the hunting setup and conditions the evening before the goose hunt. The group hunting will either leave from our lodge following the guide to the field, or be given a location to meet at the morning of the hunt. Following arrival to the field, the guide will give everyone information on what will be going on for the morning hunt and the setup. We recommend to use a 12 gauge shotgun with bbs or T shot. Evening specklebelly goose hunts will normally meet up around 1:00 pm at one of the three of our primary meeting areas and leave out to the field. Upon arrival to the field the guide will go over the setup and the situation for that day and everyone will settle in to the blinds or hunting situation for that day. Transportation in and out the field is provided as well as decoys and blinds.

Specklebelly geese are not only one of the most amazing geese to watch decoy, they are also the most vocal waterfowl to call to and to listen to calling back.  Over the past several years the Specklebelly population and hunting here in Stuttgart has became very popular. They are also considered to be the ribeye in the sky based on how good these birds taste. Give us a opportunity to see it for yourself. Last season was a success with just shy of 2800 Specklebelly geese harvested.

Arkansas Spring Conservation Snow Goose Hunts

Come enjoy the experience of a lifetime as the spring snow goose season starts right here in Stuttgart, Arkansas. While hunting with Arkansas' finest snow goose guides you will get to experience the sky covered with several thousand snow geese funneling down on top of you. This is something that as a waterfowl hunter you have to experience at least once in your lifetime. The spring snow goose migration is much more condensed than the fall migration causing massive amounts of concentrated geese. Its nothing to look up in the sky and see thousands upon thousands of snow geese tornadoing down into your spread.  The spring conservation snow goose order allows us to hunt the large masses of snow geese using electronic calls, unplugged shot guns, extended shooting hours, and if you're coming from out of state the license is FREE!!! All these factors come together makes a snow goose conservation hunt an experience of a lifetime.

The 2017-2018 spring conservation  snow goose season was a great success with averaging 37 birds per hunt. We hunt two different styles of snow goose setups. One snow goose setup is a large permanent decoy spread with anywhere from 1500-1800 skyfly decoys in a major migration area where snow geese funnel through each spring. On the permanent decoy setup as well as our mobile spread setups we run multiple speaker electronic callers, rotary machines, and several fliers. The permanent spreads produce very well on sunny days with a south wind once the spring snow goose migration starts in southern Arkansas. The other spread we run often until the spring migration begins, is a mobile spread hunting primarily the x (feed fields) with primarily 1000-1500 decoys. We have two full time guys who ride all of our property each day to see what fields the snow geese are feeding on. Once the geese leave these feeding fields they move to a roost pond where they stay overnight and return to feed in morning hours. We watch the snow geese everyday of the season, morning and evening to find exactly where the birds are now and where they will be the next day. We usually go in on the morning of hunts and set up on these x fields to ensure decoys do not have any frost on them. Both styles of  hunts are great for our spring conservation snow goose season, but each one has a time and place in the season. With over 40,000 acres of prime snow goose hunting property here in Stuttgart, you're sure to have a blast!

 

We offer lodging for all hunting parties at one of our four lodging locations all within 30 minutes of the hunting areas. At the lodges, guides will settle groups into the lodge to explain the next days hunting senerio, and afterwards you can kick back by the fire for a relaxing evening. Hunters will leave out from the lodge and follow the guides to the area we will hunt the next morning. Transportation in and out of the fields or timber will be provided by atv, utv or boat each day. After everyone is settled in, the guide will proceed to setup electronic calls and give a speech to everyone on gun safety.  At legal shooting hours, (1/2 hour before sunrise)  the caller will be turned on and the hunt begins. All hunters are responsible for taking their snow geese with them. Tips for guides are not a must but greatly appreciated!

Shot size of bbs or T shot 3" or 3 1/2" 12 gauge. Licenses are free! Go to www.agfc.com for the arkansas spring conservation snow goose order.
