Duck Season Opens : December 5, 2017 – January 31, 2018
Reelfoot Lake is situated along the Mississippi Flyway and is a favorite destination for duck and goose hunters. Each year the lake attracts over 150,000 ducks and geese. They can usually be seen on the north end of the lake in the late afternoon. Duck and goose hunts are offered in field, open water or pothole hunting. Duck hunting packages or guides are available upon request.
This lake with its four waterfowl refuges – Long Point, Grassy Island, Black Bayou and Lake Isom – comprising 20,000 acres concentrates 600,000 or so ducks each year. Reelfoot duck hunters hunt from both stationary and boat blinds. They also enjoy hunting yo-yo ducks that fly south to Mississippi and Louisiana and then back north to Reelfoot due to weather and temperatures.
