The Duck Classic is a fundraiser based on four man teams hosted by local farmers and property owners with points awarded for ducks harvested. The scoring system awards points for the types and amounts of ducks. The event also includes a dinner and auction on Thursday night where each team is randomly selected and matched with some of Northeast Arkansas’ top hunting spots. Friday morning, after the hunt, lunch is provided at the hunter check in. The winner is determined by the team with the most points and the earliest recorded score.
