Planning your Arkansas duck hunt should be easy, so to ensure you have a wonderful experience we have compiled a list of things to help you prepare for your hunt with Duck Down Guide Service.

Driving Directions

Duck Down Guide Service is located in the heart of Arkansas's Grand Prairie. Only 18 miles west of "The Duck & Rice Capitol of the World", Stuttgart, AR, and only a short 45 minute drive from the Little Rock National Airport, should you choose to fly into the state to hunt with us. Below is the address of Duck Down's headquarters. This is where we meet all clients before the hunt to gear up and get ready.

We meet all hunters at Duck Down Guide Service HQ address below. Hunters should arrive no earlier than 5:00am, yet, no later than 5:45am, on the morning of their hunt. Morning hunts end at 10:00am, unless you have reached your limit of birds.  

Afternoon hunters will use the same address, but different times. We prefer our hunters to arrive for the afternoon hunt, no earlier than 2:00pm. Afternoon hunts begin at 2:30pm
