The old Arkansas state motto, Land of Opportunity, is especially true for hunters because The Natural State is well populated by a wide variety of Arkansas wildlife found on several million acres of public lands. The Bayou Meto area is no exception. The eastern side of the state has herds of deer, plentiful squirrels, turkey, hogs and other prized game. Arkansas’ Bayou Meto WMA and surrounding area is also unparalleled for duck hunting along the famous Mississippi Flyway! For Arkansas hunting seasons, regulations, licenses, permits and guides, visit the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Driving through Eastern Arkansas in Winter/Spring you may happen upon a field that may appear to be unharvested cotton, or a large snow patch. After a double take you will realize it is a sea of feeding Snow Geese blanketing the landscape. Northeastern Arkansas is dominated by rice fields and winter wheat which draws in the migrating snow geese who will fuel up to make that next jump as they migrate north each spring. Guided goose hunts are extremely popular and Bayou Meto Land and Lease Co. is ideally located to provide a goose hunting experience of a lifetime.
Our guided goose hunts on our 100 acre dry cut rice field are provided by Jordan Givens.
