* All Hunts Guided *
 For the greenhead mallard enthusiast, experience two styles and locations of flooded timber hunting near Lake Village, Arkansas. On the first morning of a two day hunt, the first style of flooded timber hunting is from a duck blind that is elevated approximately 20 feet above the ground hidden in the tree shadows under the canopy of the tree tops. Shooting down at the greenhead mallards as they suddenly descend through the timber or shooting skyward as they ascend through the tree tops. On the second morning of a two day hunt, experience the second style of flooded timber hunting by hunting a different location wading and standing in the water near a tree, shooting greenhead mallards as they descend through the tree tops and suddenly appear in your face! In the evening after the first morning hunt, enjoy a spectacular, incredible, sometimes ridiculous specklebelly goose hunt. Specklebelly goose hunting in this area is simply outstanding! Not enough hunting? Also consider a third morning hunt - a combination duck and goose hunt from a buried pit blind. Experience (see and hear) an incredible movement of ducks and geese as they begin their morning activities. Harvest a variety of ducks such as: mallards, pintails, gadwalls, teal and widgeon. Specklebelly, blue, snow and ross geese are also harvested on the combination duck and goose hunt and are found in large numbers.
 In Arkansas, hunters are allowed 6 ducks, 20 blue, snow and ross geese, 3 specklebelly geese and 2 Canadian geese per hunter per day.

Vast amounts of floating and full body decoys

<< Photo to left is a Combo Duck and Goose Hunt.
Geese apparently were not moving very well on this hunt but the ducks were. Tomorrows hunt could produce just the opposite, more geese than ducks. That’s the beauty of a combo hunt, either the ducks or geese will usually move well. Occasionally, both ducks and geese move a lot on the same day.
Note: Paul Baker, guide in center, led this group to a successful hunt. Also, Chris Dear, 2nd from left contributes to many successful hunts!
Thanks Paul and Chris!
9 hunters - one decoy spread
Combo duck & goose hunt
 Awesome hunt!
 Note the feathers that have been wind blown against the levee. Feathers found floating on the surface of the water are a result of the normal preening process of ducks & geese.
 This is an indication that ducks and geese are preening, sleeping and loafing in hunting areas.
This greatly enhances your hunting opportunity for success!
