NE Arkansas leases or reputable guides

Postby VolDucks » Tue Dec 31, 2013 12:59 pm

Hello all,
New to the site West TN duck hunter looking for a possible lease opportunity in NE Arkansas for the 2014-15 season. Starting early lol. Also if anyone has used any reasonable guides in the area that you guys like. Looking to spend 1000-1500 on lease and may have another person. Mostly hunt weekends due to schedule but some in week when possible. Thank you for any help! Please serious helpful posts only. I have decoys, mojos, boat etc to contribute.

Good Luck. Most leases around here are 4-8k for a pit lease. Most river is privately owned or government.

You don't need a big private lease to kill ducks in Arkansas. There is enough good public opportunity there that with some time put in scouting, couple dozen decoys, tank of gas and a 14+ foot boat you can smack some ducks.
Tell your wife you love her, wrestle in the yard with your kids, shake your best friend's hand, let your dog sleep on the bed, and thank God for all the blessings in your life.

There is a lot of public land, but personally I refuse to go on public. No duck is worth 2 am wakeups and boat races.

Are you looking for a season lease? There's a few people that rent daily, we used Arkansas County Guide Service.

That AIN'T in Northeast Arkansas. Not saying it's not a fine outfitter, but just that it is definitely in east central Arkansas and borders on southeast Arkansas.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.

Yearly lease are high! I know of 1 in NeAr that went for $20 grand. 2 field 2 pits. Owner/family still maintained rights to hunt if people leasing not hunting!! Know this is out of the ordinary.

$3,500-$15,000 is normal, per pit. Finding one ain't too hard. Finding one that doesn't suck is the challenge.

Normally, any decent to great pit will have a "waiting list" 10miles long!!! Most of the time a good pit doesn't even go onto the market...it's already spoken for before it becomes available ...obviously there are exceptions to that rule and from time to time ...people stumble upon great opportunities that work out quite pleasantly!!!

Another thing to think about.... A certain field may produce better numbers when planted in rice vs beans or vice versa ...so that dictates price and availability as well. I know some farmers that have fields that are consistent, log books to support the numbers, 1000+ bird pits in rice ...same exact field in beans following year will be lucky to hit the 500+ bird mark

Not saying that "you" or anyone else looking for fields to lease aren't aware of this but just be conscious that there's usually a reason as to why a field/pit/farm is available to the general public for lease ....just make sure it's a "good reason" and not a "bad reason"

Good luck in your search!! Now is the time to get the ball rolling!!
