It’s about friends. It’s about family. It’s about memories.

Duck season in Arkansas is drawing close and soon waterfowlers will be returning to their favorite hunting spots and, hopefully, leaving with new stories to tell.

Whether watching their kids bag the day’s limit, getting off a good shot themselves or simply enjoying a day out with old friends, hunters love to share their duck season experiences in the duck capital of the world.
