Meet Our Guides
Chad Halbert, Co-Owner of Arkansas Duckmasters, has been hunting ducks in the Arkansas Delta since he was just nine years old. His love for the sport started on his family’s farm in Palestine, Arkansas, where he learned to master duck & goose calling.
This small-town boy has plenty of guiding tricks up his sleeve. He’s known for his strategic placement of decoys in just the right spots, knowing the art of pit selection in accordance with the winds, and has been called one of the best snow goose and white fronted goose hunters in the state.
Kirby Carlson, Co-Owner of Arkansas Duckmasters, was introduced to the world of duck hunting by his Uncle Buster & Cousin Bubba when he was only six years old, and it was all downhill from there.
A hunting guide by morning, banker by day, and farmer by night, Kirby has spent that last 15+ years working the ground through the summer and hunting it all winter. In the blind with Kirby, you’ll notice his extensive knowledge of the area, his pride for the land, and his love for a good hunt. He’s known for working hard, and playing even harder. You’ll never leave a hunt with Kirby without plenty of ducks and even more stories to tell.
