Reelfoot Lake Duck Hunting

Waterfowl Unlimited specializes in Guided Reelfoot Lake Duck Hunting. Our duck hunting on Reelfoot Lake began in the days of market hunting in the Great Depression by our owner’s great-grandfather, a 2nd generation Reelfoot Lake duck guide. This means that Reelfoot Lake duck hunts have been our specialty for over 150 years! 

Come visit us and experience some of the best, world-class public duck hunting in Tennessee and wider! 

Want to know why this will be your best duck hunting experience? Well, one of the reasons is that here you’ll find hundreds of thousands of ducks to hunt! You just won’t be able to miss them! 

Waterfowl Unlimited is centrally and conveniently located near the Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge. The Reelfoot Lake National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1941 to manage the northern third of Reelfoot Lake as a refuge for migratory birds. Additional lands acquired in Southwestern Kentucky expanded the refuge to its current 10,428 acres. 

What all of this means is that it is not uncommon for the Reelfoot Lake refuge systems to winter hundreds of thousands of migrating ducks and geese during the duck hunting season! So why not take advantage and get your hunting on here with us today?

Make your next West Tennessee duck hunting trip one to remember by calling us at Waterfowl Unlimited Guide Services today and coming out to the beautiful Reelfoot Lake.

Tennessee Snow Goose Hunting

Traverse the breathtaking sights of Tennessee’s wetlands when snow goose hunting with Reelfoot Lake Duck Hunting Guide, and find out why we’re rated in the Top 3 of all waterfowl hunting destinations in the country! We have spent years developing relationships with farmers that we continually stay in contact with throughout the conservation season, and know exactly which fields are holding large concentrations of snow geese for your benefit. An “average” day in the field will result in 15-30 snow geese being taken per group of hunters, but there is always a good chance of a great hunt of 50-100 snow geese being taken, depending on the weather and their flight patterns.

Don’t forget to come prepared when it’s time for spring snow goose hunting. One day it can be 70° and sunny, and the next 15° and snowing. Make sure to bring appropriate clothing, face masks, guns, ammo, and supplies for cleaning the birds.

At the end of the day, you can trust our crew to work diligently to make sure that you have the best opportunity to have a fun, safe trip while making memories that last a lifetime.

Reelfoot Lake

Reelfoot Lake is a beautiful lake rich with wildlife, located in the state of Tennessee. The lake spreads over two counties in the northwestern part of the state, Lake County and Obion County. The area where the lake is located was established as a State Park, as well as a National Wildlife Refuge area, and the lake itself a natural landmark. 

It is a very popular lake for boating, fishing, wildlife viewing, and of course, the best duck hunting in the state of Tennessee!
