I am 41 years old, married and have 3 beautiful daughters. When I am not duck hunting I work as a Network Engineer. I have been hunting waterfowl since the age of 14 and guiding for the last 22 years. I have chased waterfowl from Manitoba Canada to Venice, LA up and down the Mississippi Flyway. I now do all of my hunting in North East AR because THIS IS WHERE THE DUCKS ARE! I hunt everyday of the AR Waterfowl season and hunt like “EVERYDAY IS OPENING DAY!”
I am extremely passionate about duck hunting and enjoy sharing my passion with others. With 3 daughters, I am a big advocate for getting kids and women involved in our hunting tradition. I will do what it takes to make sure you have the best hunting experience of your life.
My name is Shawn Mathews. I am 29 years old born and raised right here in North East Arkansas, the duck mecca of the world! I would say duck hunting is a huge passion of mine but that would be putting it mildly. Duck hunting is a way of life for me! I started duck hunting at age 5. I was lucky enough to be born in an area ripe with waterfowl hunting tradition. I have had the opportunity to study and learn the flyway and the patterns of birds in this area. Aside from duck hunting, I enjoy deer hunting, fishing and time with family & friends. Duck hunting is always fun, but as a guide, I take my job seriously and put safety 1st above all else. You can be assured that I will do what it takes to ensure you and your loved ones are safe and see what a real AR duck hunting experience is all about. I am proud to be a part of the Cupped Wings Guide Service family. I am also on the Pro-Staff for Cupped Wings Outdoors duck calls. I am here to ensure you have an amazing time in the field and at the lodge. If you get the chance to come to North East Arkansas and hunt with us at Cupped Wings Guide Service, I will do everything in my power to put you on the birds. “EVERYDAY IS OPENING DAY” here at CWGS because duck hunting is not just a passion here, it’s a way of life!!
My name is Hunter Harlan, I’m 27 years old and I am from Columbia TN. I grew up deer hunting, small game and duck hunting. I have hunted every day of the AR duck season in North East Arkansas for the last 10 years. I am extremely passionate about the sport and enjoy and sharing my passion with others. For me, half of the fun is meeting great people and hearing all the stories from all over the country. When It’s not duck season I own/operate Hunter Harlan farms in Columbia TN, and enjoy spending time with friends and family. I’m so thankful I have the opportunity to spend as much time as I do in the field and look forward to sharing my passion with others! I am proud to be a part of the Cupped Wings Guide Service family.
