Location, location, location: the fabled southeastern Arkansas region teems with overwintering waterfowl and Commander’s Corner is poised to make the most of it. Their highly-coveted, privately-owned inholding is perfectly situated in the middle of Overflow NWR’s 6,000-acre waterfowl sanctuary. Heavy straps are the norm. Mallards comprise the bulk of daily harvests. The mallards may not come out to play in earnest until the sun comes up, but most mornings you won’t want to miss the spectacle that is numerous swarms of waterfowl trafficking the sky at sunrise.
In addition to mallards, gadwalls, pintail, green-winged teal and several other species eagerly work the large, permanent spreads of quality decoys. Hunting is done from pit blinds located in agriculture, and occasionally in wooden blinds or standing in the woods. The “Sanctuary blind” is located only 5 miles from the lodge, Arkansas duck hunting at Commander’s Corner is conducted from large, in-ground blinds capable of comfortably accommodating 8 to 10 guns.
