Mississippi Duck Hunting – Linden Plantation

mississippi duck hunting linden

Mississippi duck hunting at Linden Plantation is more than a best-of-best duck hunt.  Steeped in the glorious Mississippi Delta’s genteel history and celebrated hospitality, it is an immersive experience that will be cherished by hunters and non-hunter companions alike.  Think Gone with the Wind but with heavy duck straps.

Located in a corner of the world that has harbored overwintering ducks for as long as the mighty Mississippi River itself has existed, and perfectly positioned among Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge’s sanctuary and several regional oxbow lake flyways, are Esperanza Outdoors’s carefully managed landholdings: flooded agricultural fields, cypress brakes, flooded green timber and managed moist-soil impoundments.  Hunting pressure is purposefully guarded; Esperanza Outdoors caters to exclusive groups of preferably 4-6 guns, not to exceed 4 mornings weekly.  The cumulative result is an astounding daily bag of 4+ ducks per hunter  – over twice the Mississippi average – and about 80% mallards.  Hunting is done from comfortable, well-brushed blinds located within 15 minutes easy drive-time.

Linden Plantation was the Mississippi Delta’s original settlement and has since remained in the family.  Linden House sits on natural high ridge with a commanding view of beautiful Lake Washington, which was once the Mississippi River itself. The Greek Revival style home is framed by ancient magnolias and gleams metallic red-orange at sunset.  Received as personal guests into the home of owners Cameron and Whitney Dinkins the hospitality immediately bears the casual intimacy of long-time friends. Linden House has been lovingly maintained and retains an understated opulence that harkens the yesteryear of plantation living. Elegant gourmet meals are served on fine china and accompanied by excellent wines.  Relax on the home’s luxurious antique furnishings and enjoy top-shelf spirits while recounting the day’s events. Look closely and you’ll notice hand-painted depictions of the Delta on the century-old wall covering.  Listen closely and you’ll hear a serenade of waterfowl beyond the veranda.

Linden is located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, and is an easy drive from the Jackson, Mississippi, commercial airport & private air services are available nearby.  Your Mississippi duck hunting trip with Esperanza outdoors may be personalized with premium package upgrades: the region’s rich and colorful history lends itself to an array of non-hunting and additional hunting activities (see below).  Guests stay in newly-constructed, well-appointed shotgun-style cottages adjacent to, or optional private rooms located within, Linden House.
