Arkansas guided deer Hunt
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR Arkansas guided deer hunt
Please plan to arrive the afternoon before your first morning hunt to meet up to sign release of liability forms and set up a game plan for the next day.
If you have reserved the Guided Deer Hunt with Lodging, you will arrive at the lodge to check-in anytime between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM CDT the day before your first hunt.
Remaining balances that have not been paid are due in cash only day of arrival. We do not accept checks or credit cards day of arrival.
You will meet your guide the morning of your hunt 1 hour before legal shooting light at either the lodge or at a predetermined location near the hunting grounds.
You will follow behind in your own vehicle to the hunting grounds. Your guide will provide the ATV/UTV or Argo to transport you to and from the hunting blinds. You are welcome to bring your own tree climber stand if you would like. We will have blinds ready for you to use. You are required to provide your own camo and hunting equipment such as bow, arrows, gun, ammo, etc.
If you are doing the guided hunt with lodging, each guest in your party will be given a bed room to unload your belongings. We pair 2 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, garage or shop.
Our goal is to make sure you have an opportunity to harvest a quality deer (buck or doe) and enjoy a true Arkansas bottom land deer hunting experience! After the hunt you will be escorted by your guide back to the hunting lodge. If you are doing the guided hunt only, your guide will contact you after scouting to give you the game plan for the next days hunt.
We are hunting wild deer, not high fenced deer. Your guide will put you in the area were we are seeing the most activity to give you the best opportunity to kill a deer. We have over 20 cell cams deployed across several thousand acres of intensely manged private land.
Each day while you are hunting, your guide will head out to scout for the next days hunt. If you are doing the guided hunt with lodging, after your hunt, 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.
Plan on visiting the Ducks Unlimited Waterfowl Heritage Center located in Memphis,TN. Along the banks of the Mississippi River it is only 25 minutes from our Gilmore lodge, and 1 hr 15 min from our McCrory Lodge. It is Bass Pro Shops largest superstore. It features a treasury of duck hunting and deer hunting history and memorabilia. The Memphis Pyramid converted into the worlds largest wildlife interactive museum. Focusing on raising awareness of wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Emphasizing the importance of rivers and wetlands to society. Illustrating the role that hunters play in conserving wildlife habitat and waterfowl resources. Its a must see if you are going to be in Arkansas hunting with us this season!
If you are a hunting fanatic like most of us, you will definitely want to check out DNW Outdoors in Jonesboro, AR. It is about a 30-40 minute drive from our Gilmore lodge and about a 1 hr 10 min drive from our McCrory Lodge. You can also check out the world famous Mack's Prairie Wings. Mack's is about a 1 hr drive from our McCrory Lodge and 2 hr drive from our Gilmore Lodge.
Tips are customary and much appreciated if you feel your guides worked hard to give you the best possible Arkansas Deer hunting experience.
The last day of the hunt will wrap up by 2:00 PM CDT. Check out time is by 4:00 PM CDT last day of the hunt.
When you are at the Cupped Wing Guide Service lodge, make yourself at home. This is your Arkansas Deer Hunting Vacation! Enjoy it!
