2. Gun- “Only shotguns 10-gauge and smaller, using steel or other approved non-
toxic shot may be used. Shotguns that can hold more than three shells must be

plugged with a one-piece filler that renders it incapable of holding more than

three shells and cannot be removed without disassembling the gun.” Please be

sure to bring a soft sided gun case for transporting guns on the rangers and argos.

3. Hunting Waders- Since you will be hunting in flooded rice fields and flooded

timber, hunting waders are a must. If you do not have waders, please call

before hand so that we can have your size ready to rent when you arrive.

4. Shotgun Shells- We recommend using #2 steel shot for most of our hunting

situations- You can bring your own shells or buy them from us.

Dogs- Your hunting guide will have an experienced hunting retriever

accompanying you on your duck hunt. You are welcome to bring your own dog for

both the duck hunting and pheasant hunting, but your dog must be obedient so as

not to jeopardize the hunt for the entire party. We have outdoor kennels available

with single dog box.

Transportation to/from the Little Rock National Airport or Memphis to the lodge can be arranged for a nominal fee based on the number of vehicles required.

Walnut Ridge Regional Airport has two 5000 ft runways as well as a 6000 ft runway. No tower- lights are radio controlled.
