Arkansas trip planned.....any advice?

Postby tryin2hunt » Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:31 pm

Hey guys, I am headed to Arkansas in December for the first time. I am going to be hunting the Felsenthal NWR. Not looking for any spots or anything, just some advice from some of you guys that have been out there before. i.e. anything special to I need to take, good websites to check out before I head that way. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Have all your stuff planned before you get out there, and be very flexible with dates, try to develop a contact that frequents the area and can tell you what the weather is and what the duck numbers are like, be ready to leave at a moments notice

Thanks quack, everything is planned out pretty well. We have about a 10 day window, so we are hoping to get out there when the birds and weather are at their best. Hopefully it will all work out. I'm getting pretty excited, should be a great time either way tho.

I hunted Stugartt year before last in Dec & we had a blast, weather was perfect & we piled up the ducks. Good luck on your trip.

TAKE WARM CLOTHS! if your hunting the creek bottoms the water is cold oh did I mention the water is cold. 3MM waders will not keep you warm. Oh did I mention the water is cold. Born and raised in Fort Smith area which is in North West Arkansas. Hunted there all my life. Good Luck wish I was going this year. :beer:
