I've had the pleasure of hunting with Ryan and the folks at Duck Down Guide Service for the last two years and the experience has been top notch. If you're a first time hunter, moderate, or experienced I highly recommend booking. Ryan and his team work very hard to ensure your hunt is accommodating and successful in a large or small group. The birds are always there, but the experience and professionalism of the guides (Russ, Benjie, Ryan) is what really makes this place worthwhile to hunt. Beware: Hunting here is extremely addictive!!!

Duck hunting was slow but our guides busted tail to get the job done. Goose hunting was PHENOMENAL. Absolutely will do business again. Great guys and great place

DDGS is everything you could want in a guide service. Top notch guides, family atmosphere, and prime location. We had constant action on our 4 day hunt and I plan on making it an annual event.

Fall 2013 - Queen City, TX/Lincoln, NE

I traveled down to Humphrey, AR from Lincoln, NE, where I go to school, for an early December duck hunt. I met up with the rest of my family there, and we were happy to find great lodging accommodations waiting for us upon our arrival. The next morning, we were introduced to several of the pro-staffers, all of who were great guys, and then were taken out to a beautiful honey hole. It was cold and snowing a little, but there were wads of ducks in the air, and our guides stuck it out until we got our limit. (It didn't take very long) I'd go back in a heartbeat and would recommend Duck Down Guide Service to anyone!

When hunting at Duck Downs you immediately feel right at home. Ryan and his crew are very friendly and great guys to hunt with and be around. The property is made up mostly of flooded rice where you will find a variety of different species feeding. It holds countless amounts of ducks and geese. By the end of our trip our coolers were loaded full with specks and ducks. Duck down and get some.

2013-2014 season - Hendrick Motor Sports

I'm from the East coast and the waterfowl hunting along the Southern Atlantic flyway is nothing to brag about. So some friends and I decided to book a trip to Arkansas for a duck hunt. Not knowing anyone from the area we scanned the Internet looking for a guided hunt. I made a few calls and after talking to Ryan Henderson I new his farm was where we needed to hunt. He offers a wide variety of hunts to allow you book the hunt your looking for. Having some hunting experience we decided to try out our skills and decided on renting a blind from Ryan and doing a non-guided hunt. Turned out to be my best waterfowl experience ever. The farm is over 6000 acres and held birds all day. If your reading this and trying to decide where to book your next hunt, try Duck Down Guide Service and you will not be disappointed . Thanks again for the awesome experience Ryan!! Gene Cornwell

Fall Waterfowl 2013

My cousin and I have been taking an annual hunting trip now for 4 years. We have primarily hunted Wyoming and Colorado for waterfowl on these trips, but I finally convinced Tony to make the trip to Arkansas. We are a couple of stubborn guys, and like to do all the work ourselves, so we booked a fully self-guided trip with Ryan on his farm. Never being to Arkansas, I was a little skeptical of what we were getting ourselves into. The first day was a learning experience to say the least, but after 3 days and 2 guns, we walked away with 31 ducks and 1 lone speck that is going on the wall. Arkansas itself is unbelievable for ducks and geese, but Ryan's farm is phenomenal. Thousands of birds were seen from sun up till sun down. There was never more than a 15 minute period that we didn't at least have ducks working out spread. Will I make the trip back to Arkansas? Absolutely. And there's only one guy I'll call.

I really enjoyed my first Dove hunting experience with Duck Down Guide Service this weekend. The Hunt was very well organized and Ryan and his guys were very proffesional and friendly. I appreciate you finding the spot for me and I plan on booking a duck hunt at Duck Down Guide Service this season.


Kurt Wampole

This year's dove hunt was my first experience with Duck Down, and I can't say enough about it! While there were quite a few hunters, everyone had plenty of space and there were more than enough birds to go around! Guides and hunters alike were all exceptionally friendly, and the camaraderie was unbeatable. This was my son's first hunt ever, and it was one that neither of us will soon forget. Thanks to Ryan and his staff for the great can bet that we'll be back!

Ryan puts on one of the best dove hunts, if not the best, I've ever participated in anywhere. He is great to work with and a true sportsman. He keeps it safe, fun, and he has the birds - so many birds! I am thankful to have found Duck Down Guide Service and I have already begun referring friends.

The Willey Farm could not be in a better location for prime duck hunting!  Ryan works as hard as anyone in the business to provide a first class hunting experience for all his clients.  Rotating and resting fields is a key part of keeping birds on their farm and in order for that to happen you need plenty of ground to hunt.  Well, the Henderson's farm is one of the largest in the area that is left in one contiguous block.  Do yourself a favor and check out Duck Down Guide Service, you won't be sorry!!!!!

Steven Ransdell

the Wiley Farm is the best. Good times to be had and then some! Never a dull moment. Looking forward to cuttin some birds this year. #shoteminthelips

Jim Rodney

I've had the opportunity to dove hunt , goose hunt, & duck hunt on the Wiley Farm several times over the past 2 years. The 1st time was great & it seems to get better each time I go. Look forward to going again this year and enjoying the people & the place.

Matthew Finley

I will say a word...just a word.  I have never hunted your "side" of the Willey Farm, but have had the most gracious opportunity to hunt that farm religiously the last decade and a half.  I have had the blessing to have hunted some of the finest duck spots on the Grand Prairie and from a standpoint of ducks on hand, the Willey Farm, year in and year, out ranks at the top of the list.  That area is as best you will find anywhere and I would put it up against any farm, anywhere, anytime, in the amount of mallards killed year in and year out.  I have the opportunity to visit with Ryan's clients from time to time and they always are ready to come back the next season.......BTW I checked out your website, and your photographer deserves a pat on the back!!!!

40 ducks on opening morning of the 2012-2013 Arkansas duck season. A group of Mississippi boys couldn't ask for a better hunt. Call Duck Down Guide Service to book your next waterfowling adventure. Duck Down has half the rules and twice the ducks as other guide services.

I have known Ryan and the Henderson family for over 30 years. They exemplify a trusted as well as hard working farm family of eastern Arkansas. This farm lies in one of the most productive areas on the Mississip Flyway. This location along with Ryans hard work. Equal a waterfowling experience not to be matched. Greg Seaton Jr
