Arkansas Conservation Goose Hunt

What To Expect On Your Arkansas Conservation Goose Hunt with Cupped Wings Guide Service.

You will meet your guide the morning of your hunt 1 hr before legal shooting light at either the duck lodge or at a predetermined location near the hunting grounds. Any remaining balances that have not been paid should be paid upon arrival via cash only. Checks and credit cards cannot be accepted on-site. Everyone in your group will be required to sign a release of liability waiver prior to hunting. Depending on the size of your group you may ride with one of our guides or follow behind in your own vehicle to the hunting grounds. You will be driven by ATV/UTV from the parking areas on our farms to the hunting spots by your guides.

Your guide will be scouting every afternoon to put you in the best possible place for a successful hunt for the next day. Your guide will provide all of the decoys, hunting dog and will be an accomplished caller. However, don’t take this to mean you are not welcome to call also or bring your own dog. You are encouraged to dust off that call and help call in geese! If you are a beginner, your guides are happy to help teach you a few tricks of the trade.

Our goal is to make sure everyone has an opportunity to kill as many geese as possible and enjoy a true Arkansas goose hunting experience! During the conservation goose season, there is no limit on snows, blues & ross geese. Light geese aren’t only a nuisance to Arkansas farmers. They have become so abundant, they are destroying their nesting grounds in the Arctic Tundra. Not only are the geese eating themselves out of house and home, they’re destroying critical habitat for other species that share the Tundra. Biologists can conduct eradication efforts to balance the population, but do so only as a last resort. Increased hunting opportunity is the first wildlife management tool biologists turn to, because it costs very little to implement and is much more socially accepted than other population control measures.

The conservation order is designed so hunters can reduce snow, blue and Ross’ goose numbers through increased harvest. Because of the extreme need for more harvest, many waterfowl hunting regulations are relaxed during the order:

Hunting is allowed from 30 minutes before sunrise until 30 minutes after sunset.
There is no daily bag limit or possession limit.
Hunters may use unplugged shotguns.
Hunters may use electronic calls.
No federal or state waterfowl stamps are required to hunt during the conservation order.
Hunters must have a valid hunting license, but it may be from any state.
All hunters participating in the conservation order must get a free registration permit number by calling (800) 364-4263 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.)

We do not offer evening guided hunts. Each evening, your guides will head out to scout for the next days hunt. There are several nearby attractions that clients enjoy checking out. Our newest attraction that duck hunters have to experience is a visit to the new Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center only 30 minutes away. It is Bass Pro Shops largest superstore featuring a treasury of duck hunting history and memorabilia. The Memphis Pyramid has been converted into the largest wildlife interactive museum focusing on raising awareness of wetlands and waterfowl conservation, emphasizing the importance of rivers and wetlands to society, and illustrating the role that hunters play in conserving wildlife habitat and the waterfowl resources. Its a must see if you are going to be in AR hunting with us this year! You can take a 10 minute drive to Lake Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge has a nice viewing platform and it can hold over 1,000,000 birds during certain times during the migration. We highly recommend taking a camera and going to watch sunset from the viewing platform. Its an unbelievable site! If you are a waterfowl fanatic like most of us, you will definitely want to check out DNW Outdoors in Jonesboro, AR. Its about a 30 minute drive but worth the drive.

Tips are not required but are customary if you feel your guides worked hard to give you the best possible Arkansas duck hunting experience.
