Duck Hunting

Our fully guided duck hunts are some of the best you’ll find anywhere in the U.S.– in fact, our river hunts make folks in Arkansas cringe at the sight of how many mallards we can put in your face! Take a look at photos from some of our recent duck hunt expeditions.

December and January are our prime times for great greenhead action on the river. On average, over 95% of the ducks we take each year are mallards, and banded birds are commonplace at Ducks N Bucks. Some stretches of the river are narrow, giving it that flooded timber feel. Other sections that we hunt are more spread out, so you can sit back and enjoy a hunt from a large sandbar with groups of 200-300 birds working overhead all morning. We also offer a marsh hunt over a big spread of duck decoys. You and your group will hide in a cattail blind and watch thousands of puddle ducks swarm in all directions. The marsh is located just down the road from the Great Salt Plains Refuge where up to 100,000 ducks and geese roost during the winter months. Bonus Geese and Sandhill Cranes are also common on our marsh hunts (you will need a permit for the cranes).

Duck hunts include lodging, well-trained retrievers and are fully guided. If you would like to bring your own dog, we ask that you limit yourself to one dog for every four hunters in your group. Just let us know at the time of booking and we will be happy to make all arrangements necessary to assist you and your favorite hunting partner.

At Ducks N Bucks, we feel it is important to get younger hunters involved in the outdoors as well.
