All Inclusive upland bird Hunt
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR Cupped Wings All Inclusive Upland bird hunt
You may check-in at the lodge anytime between 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM CDT the evening before your scheduled hunt begins.
Any remaining balances that have not been paid should be paid upon arrival via cash only. Checks and credit cards cannot be accepted day of arrival.
Everyone in your group will sign a release of liability waiver prior to hunting. Please plan on eating supper on your own evening of arrival.
There will be snacks, appetizers, sodas, etc available the evening you arrive but a full supper will not be served the 1st evening when you arrive. Breakfast, Lunch & Supper will be provided on your hunt dates. On the last day of your hunt, breakfast and lunch will be provided & check-out is by 2 PM CDT.
Each guest in your party will be given a bed room to unload your belongings. We pair 2 to 4 people to a room and you will NOT room with someone you don’t know. We ask that all of your muddy gear stay in the mud room or garage.
The next morning you will wake up to a home cooked breakfast includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, coffee & juice. Plan on eating breakfast around 6:30 AM and heading out to the hunting grounds by 7:30 AM.
You will follow behind in your own vehicle to the hunting grounds. You will be driven by ATV/UTV from the parking areas on our farms to the hunting fields by your guides.
We hunt Pheasants, Quail & Chukar Partridge on a private game reserve. The birds are flight conditioned and we offer northern style flushing and European style shoots. You can expect on the combination upland hunt to have a mixed bag of (8-10 Quail, 5-8 Chukar & 3-5 Pheasants) per person per hunt.
Because we are hunting on a private game reserve, no hunting licenses are required.
The hunt includes either 1 morning hunt or 1 afternoon hunt. If you would like to do 2 hunts per day (1 morning hunt and 1 afternoon hunt) you can add on a second Upland Bird Hunt for an additional $350 per person. If you plan on doing a morning and afternoon hunt, the extra hunt must be booked ahead of time to ensure guide and bird availability.
Plan on bringing good hiking boots as you will be doing a lot of walking & hiking each day. If you have physical disabilities that prevent you from walking 1-3 miles per day, please let us know ahead of time and we can work with you on the set up and/or provide a side-by-side, ATV/UTV’s for your assistance.
Our goal is to make sure everyone has an opportunity to kill all 3 species of birds and enjoy a true upland bird hunting experience! After the hunt you will be escorted by your guide back to the private reserve club house where we will log, clean, bag & label the days birds in order for you to legally transport back to your home. After the birds are processed you will head back to the main lodge where you can plan on either hanging out at the lodge enjoying some skeet shooting, pool, darts, TV and a few cocktails or there are several nearby attractions that clients enjoy checking out.
Our newest attraction that upland bird and waterfowl hunters have to experience is a visit to the new Ducks Unlimited Waterfowl Heritage Center only 25 minutes away. It is Bass Pro Shops largest superstore featuring a treasury of duck hunting history and memorabilia. The Memphis Pyramid has been converted into the largest wildlife interactive museum focusing on raising awareness of wetlands and waterfowl conservation, emphasizing the importance of rivers and wetlands to society. They illustrate the role hunters play in conserving wildlife habitat and conserving waterfowl resources. Its a must see if you are going to be in AR hunting with us this year!
You can take a 10 minute drive to Lake Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge has a nice viewing platform and it can hold over 1,000,000 birds during certain times during the migration. We highly recommend taking a camera and going to watch sunset from the viewing platform. Its an unbelievable site!
If you are a waterfowl fanatic like most of us, you will definitely want to check out DNW Outdoors in Jonesboro, AR. Its about a 30 minute drive but worth the drive.
We plan on eating supper each evening around 6:00 PM CDT. We eat good, so hope you have a healthy appetite!
Your guides will generally turn in pretty early around 9:00 PM but you are welcome to stay up and enjoy the lodge as long as you would like, just be ready at 6:30 AM for breakfast.
The last day of the hunt will wrap up by 12:00 noon. Check out time is by 2:00 PM CDT last day of the hunt.
Breakfast and lunch will be served last day of the hunt.
When you are at the Cupped Wing Guide Service Lodge, make yourself at home. You are welcome to help yourself to any food, drink or snacks in the lodge.
