Info on reelfoot guides

Postby PharmD10 » Sun Jul 08, 2007 10:35 pm

I'm looking to hunt reelfoot for the first time this year. Does anyone know of any good guides that will put us on some ducks and not rip us off? PM me if you do, thanks...

Talk to Dave at the reelfoot inn. I went up there once and he was the guide that i went with. He has a blind and if the ducks are not there he knows of others he can use. He also has a few feild blins. You can bring your dog or use his.

If you need I can find his number if you like. But it is the reelfoot inn and he owns that so you get a few days of hunting and he will pick you up at the door.

If you still haven't booked your hunt on Reelfoot, I would suggest Tommy Hogg as your guide. Tommy's "hole" is unbelievable, the duck just pore in. I have gone the last 2 years in a row, and are party of 4 guys limited out every day. If you are interested I have his phone #.

Lake is very low - no rain this summer - 24" today

If you going to hunt Reelfoot early this year - you had better be looking of a open water blind site.

Open water blinds will be hot due to low lake and no water in the river bottoms or fields in west tennessee or western kentucky or southeast missouri.

My opinion of course, but I would hunt a sewage treatment plant settling pond before I called Ronnie Capps.

If you want to kill ducks you'll call Ronnie Capps, but I'd never let him guide me.

Jwhite, that was our group that she told you about and was not stretching the truth a bit! We had a fantastic hunt! I have 4 ducks from that hunt at the taxidermist right now! Mike is a great guy and so are his guides!

Thanks again for the great hunt Mike!

Glad to know there are ducks and good guides on Reelfoot. Our hunt up there this yer sucked. Don't get me wrong our guide fed us well and we stayed 100' from the lake. But we never even got on the lake. We hunted a pit one day and killed 3 ducks and the river the next two day (daylight to dark) and killed 2 birds. These were the only shootable birds. Our guides Kevin and Leslie were super, but I just don't think their employer has the access to put hunters on good hunting.

I dont ever think i'd choose to stay at Reelfoot then be guided off the lake. The scenery is a great experience.
