Plan on arriving the evening before your 1st days hunt. 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. You will meet your guide at 8:00 AM CDT at a predetermined location near the hunting grounds. 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.
Here at Cupped Wings Guide Service we hunt Pheasants, Quail & Chukar on a private game reserve. The birds are flight conditioned and we offer northern style flushing and European style shoots. You can expect on the combination upland hunt to have a mixed bag of (8-10 Quail, 5-8 Chukar & 3-5 Pheasants) per person per hunt. The hunt includes either 1 morning hunt or 1 afternoon hunt. If you would like to do 2 hunts per day (1 morning hunt and 1 afternoon hunt) that is an option you can add on for an additional $300 per person. Plan on bringing good hiking boots as you will be doing a lot of walking & hiking each day. If you have physical disabilities that prevent you from walking 1-3 miles per day, please let us know ahead of time and we can work with you on the set up and/or provide a side-by-side ATV/UTV’s for your assistance.
Your guide will an experienced upland bird hunter and dog handler. Your guide will provide each hunter 2 boxes of 12ga or 20ga shotgun shells. If you are a beginner or just new to upland bird hunting, 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 all 3 species of birds and enjoy a true upland bird hunting experience! After the hunt you will be escorted by your guide back to the private reserve club house where we will log, clean, bag & label the days birds in order for you to legally transport back to your home. After the birds are processed you can head back to your hotel or go check out some of the nearby attractions. Our newest attraction that hunters have to experience is a visit to the new Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center only 25 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!
Tips are not required but are customary if you feel your guides worked hard to give you the best possible Upland Bird Hunting experience.
