Eric Becker

Eric Becker

I grew up an a family with a rich waterfowl hunting heritage as many would find surprising since I am from Nebraska. I remember my old man telling me stories of my great grandpa running market duck hunts and selling them in Kansas City for profit, or my dad and his buddies having to hold up limits of ducks at the hospital window because he had a heart attack in the goose pit. I have chased ducks and geese up and down the flyway from North Dakota down to Arkansas. I started duck hunting 15 years ago as a tag along. Since then I have made it a point to understand and know how to hunt ducks in every situation given from the dry corn fields of the north to the rice fields  of the south. I promise to work as hard as possible to ensure you have a successful and enjoyable experience with Arkansas county guide service.

Logan

Logan found his love for hunting waterfowl at an early age chasing ducks with his dad in the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin. As a young adult, he spent many hours hunting the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge. Logan then moved on to the Southwest Louisiana rice fields, where he discovered his passion for hunting specklebelly geese. To him, there’s nothing more rewarding than watching a big group of specks working down to the decoy spread. Logan now spends his days with Arkansas County Guide Service making sure you have the goose hunting experience of a lifetime!

Jonathon Goins

Jonathon grew up duck hunting on the East Coast Flyway on Lake Wylie in SC that borders Charlotte NC where he would have to spend the night on Open Day just to kill 3 or 4 Mallards, but in the second week of December in 2011, a friend invited him to go on an Arkansas Duck Hunt with them on the White River National Refuge.

Cory Barker

My name is Cory Barker, born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. Being outdoors was something I always enjoyed. I grew up fishing with my Uncle Joe and doing a little deer hunting with my Paw Paw Jerry.  I actually didn’t start duck hunting until I was 16, some buddies I met in high school were into it. I started tagging along shooting wood ducks in some swamps we had access to as well as  shooting divers on some of the public ground around the house.  Once I started hunting in Arkansas it just stuck with me and has been a big part of my life. I had a great first year guiding for Arkansas County and look forward to many more. I’m very thankful for this opportunity and look forward to putting y'all on the birds.
