In the 1950s my Grandpa Alvie Herndon was guiding local hunters. At that time as far as I know he was the only duck guide in our area. He was the best at calling ducks, and he told me stories of times he would be calling and have other hunters sneak up to him thinking he was a duck!
When I was about 13 he sat me down on his porch and began to teach me about calling ducks. A few years later I lost my grandpa and at that time I started having a great desire to start guiding duck hunters through the same land Grandpa did.
Although it took me some time to buy land, build a lodge and with the help of great friends, family and God, 10 years ago I did it and since then we have hunted several thousands of hunters and even some celebrities.
I try to make everyones stay at Big Creek a great one, my goal is to make everyone feel like family. If you are looking for a down home atmosphere with all the ducks you can stand, let us have the opportunity to show you a great time duck hunting in Arkansas. We've got 60 years of experience hunting ducks in Arkansas!
And to our regulars whom we see every year, thank you! You have allowed us to be part of your lives and you a part of ours and we have had some unforgettable hunts. I hope to see you this season!
