Me and a couple of buddies are trying to find one in west TN. Or possibly Arkansas, Missouri. Every time I think I find one I Google reviews and they are horrible. I know people are more prone to posting bad reviews before good but it seems there are a lot of bad waterfowl outfitters. Which brings me to my question. Who do y'all use and recommend? What are your experience with them?

We have also thought about trying to find a lease if we can't find a reputable outfitter.

Any advise would help! Thanks

My best advise is to find a "do it yourself" hunt! Thats what we do in Arkansas and its always awesome! Just basically renting a blind on a good field. I have a great place if you are interested. just pm me

If you end up in Arkansas stay away from BMW Outfitters this guy will flat rip you off.

The one thing we have learned is if you can lease from farmer and not a sub lease the better the odds of not getting screwed . But good luck on finding a lease that is any good that doesn't have a sub lease on it though . Especially Arkansas or Missouri

We lease directly from the landowner. The farmer does as the landowner tells him. That's nice.

Also, if you have a boat, Arkansas public land is a great way to do it yourself. Ducks love timber. I've limited out several times doing that, too.

We spend a lot of money leasing land and still hunt public woods at times.

Cypress Crossing and Smoking Barrels are good outfitters in Arkansas. Give me a shout if you need more information on either.

Check out Fowl Habit Outdoors. They do day leases around Egypt and Sedgewick Arkansas. They go the extra mile to put you on ducks.

I have been leasing in NE and Central Arkansas since 1998 and the ONLY two times I ever got screwed over on a field was by the actual land owners. One we had a levee break and he wouldn't repair it and the other time we leased a field and got the pits done and killed a ton of birds and he gave it to his grand kids the next year. Maybe rare but neither had a clue about duck hunting only wanted to make some $$$ but when I have dealt with a sub leaser who farmed the land it always has turned out better. Just my 2 cents. If you can get multiple year lease do it.
