"Your Arkansas Duck Hunting
What to Bring
There’s a joke the locals make about Arkansas weather.
“If you don’t like it, “ they say, “just
stay a few days and it will change.” The weather
during duck season can range from 70 degrees to 20 degrees
in a matter of days. Bringing a wide range of clothes
is a smart move. A face mask or face paint is required
if you like watching the ducks. The water is often shallow
enough to wade in and allows you to be more versatile.
Hip boots can get by in early season hunts or under extreme
shallow water conditions.
Most hunters shoot 12 gauge guns either in a 3”
or 3.5”. Timber hunters usually shoot 2’s,
4’s or 6’s, while field shooters often shoot
BBs, 1’s and 2’s. It all depends on your longest
shot and whether decoying birds or pass shooting. I you’re
luck, a boat paddle will do the job, because when you
really get into them in the timber, the ducks light close
enough to reach out and touch.
