About the Daniel Boone Duck Club
Located in the heart of the Mississippi Flyway and right off the White River National Wildlife Refuge, Daniel Boone Duck Club enjoys some of the best duck hunting around and has been a staple for generations of hunters since 1953. Founded by Daniel Boone Bullock, our goal is to provide a great hunting experience for the everyday hunter. Located just 20 miles east of Stuttgart, Arkansas, “The Rice and Duck Capital of the World,” we have some of the best rice and soybean field hunting you will find. Time tested and proven fields for nearly 7 decades. River bottom hunts have been added take place just off the WRNWR as well on over 1700 acres of private land, bringing back a tradition formed more than 70 years ago.
Our proximity in the flyway provides you with a variety of species of ducks. From mallards and pintail to gadwall, teal and geese, each hunt will provide you with the opportunity to take a wide range of birds.
Situated in the middle of Arkansas County, the World Famous Mack’s Prairie Wings is only a short 20 minute drive away for any and all hunting needs or just a trip to see what’s new in the hunting gear world. Or take a visit to Rich-N-Tone headquarters next door and see where the legendary Butch Richenback turned and tuned calls in his shop. You may also run into the current World Champion of Champions, John Stephens, while in the store. Webb’s Sporting Goods in DeWitt can also offer anything you may need for your hunting trip.

Boone, as he was called, was a true pioneer in the duck hunting business. Along with the McCollum’s Stuttgart Hunting Club, the Daniel Boone Duck Club is among the oldest in the state.
Boone and O.V. Gosnell hunted mainly river bottom land in the mid 1940’s and were put in charge of furnishing 50 ducks at the request of Charlie Hammans for a banquet in Stuttgart. Charlie was a local gunsmith and well known among locals. After fulfilling the request, Boones and Charlie’s friendship grew. So did the opportunity for duck hunting commercially.
Boone competed in the annual duck calling contest in Stuttgart around that time, finishing 6th in his one and only attempt. His larger than life stature, both physically at 6’5″ and personality coupled with his outgoing nature, made Boone many friends quickly. He never seemed to meet a stranger.
Along with his success with duck hunting and his word-of-mouth advertising around Stuttgart with Charlie, Boone changed to prairie hunting on the family farm with his brother Clyde and brother-in-law Pete McCallie in the early 1950’s.
Boone and his wife, Eleanor, moved a trailer in next door, affectionately known by hunters as the ‘Daniel Boone Hilton,’ to accommodate the growing number of out-of-town hunters which of course grew into out-of-state hunters. Eleanor would serve breakfast from the house and serve soup and salads at lunch in the club’s infancy.
Today, the longest tenured hunters have been hunting annually for more than 40 years. It is that family atmosphere that keeps Boone’s legacy alive today, even in his absence, with stories of his adventures told as if they were by his side only yesterday.
A memorial to Daniel Boone Bullock can be seen at the Grand Prairie Museum on Park Avenue in Stuttgart. It was dedicated by a handful of the hunters he had shared many hunts, laughs and stories with over the decades. It is with that same desire that we look forward to many more hunts with you in the future….Lord willing.
We have convenient lodging available for both small and larger groups. We offer several lodging options to choose from so you have the full experience of a hunting get-a-way with full amenities. If you need help with alternative lodging, please feel free to contact us for availability or for information about nearby accommodations.

Being a lifelong resident of Arkansas, I’ve hunted all over the state for 30 plus years. Daniel Boone Duck Club definitely has the best field hunting on the Grand Prairie and the White River Basin.
We have witnessed a true East Arkansas hunting experience at Daniel Boone hunting club over the years. Having hunted, as well as leased fields in the prairies region since 1996, by far the Daniel Boone fields produce quality with consistency year after year. Hunting with Cody and Terry Dan is a true duck calling and killing experience that we look forward to each and every duck season.
My name is Bob Venske and I’m from Edgerton, WI. I have hunted at the Daniel Boone Duck Club annually since 1972. I have hunted with three generations of the Bullock Family and all became friends, over 40 years of great duck hunting memories that I will never forget. I still make at least one or two week trips to the farm for some of the best hunting in the U.S.
I have been hunting at Daniel Boone Duck Club since 2000. I live in Wisconsin and hunt the Mississippi Flyway, but my love is hunting the flooded fields in Crocketts Bluff, Arkansas. My hunting buddies and I make the trip twice a season and have never been disappointed. I love the friendly family experience so much I bring my family for a third week of hunting each season. If you’re looking for a great hunt alongside great guides, look no further, the Bullocks’ knowledge of ducks and appreciation of God’s country is like no other.
