Birds in the fields!

substation 401We are still holding a few birds as our season is starting to come to a close. Seeing more and more mallards. The shovler and pintail numbers are holding strong! One of our guides was able to snap a few pictures of these birds. They wanted to be on this particular field real bad! Mostly pintails and shovlers with a few mallards and gadwall mixed in.

We had another great morning here at the Elms. Had a little bit of everything come into our spread. Our guest harvested several shovelers,  a few nice bull sprig pintails, a gadwall, and a few teal. We finished up with 18 birds! Not bad for a cold cloudy day with 20 MPH winds!!! a good day1pintails and spoons1

These South Carolina Boys had a BLAST hunting with us. This father and son duo had several firsts with us here at the Elms. It was their first trip to Arkansas. They Both harvested their first mallard, and they both harvested their first goose. They left us with a strap full of birds and smiles on their faces!  mike1


Cold Front

Harvest numbers have been a little low but there are birds in the area for sure. We are starting to see more and more new birds. Mallards are starting to show up and pintails are showing up in STRONG numbers. With it finally getting colder up North, we are anticipating a big push of new birds! big decoy spread2

Young Guns

This is what its all about folks. Getting youth involved in the great sport of waterfowl hunting! These young guns were pumped up. The strap may have been light but they were jacked to be able to harvest some birds! I think it’s safe to say that these young men will be avid waterfowl hunters for a life time!young guns1

A Strap Full

The T.V. Crew was at it again this morning! We had a good wind and had birds work almost perfectly. They managed to get a real nice strap full of birds this morning. Greg and Nate were pumped that their clients had such a good morning! Stay tuned for more pictures and updates.
