About the Daniel Boone Duck Club
Located in the heart of the Mississippi Flyway and right off the White River National Wildlife Refuge, Daniel Boone Duck Club enjoys some of the best duck hunting around and has been a staple for generations of hunters since 1953. Founded by Daniel Boone Bullock, our goal is to provide a great hunting experience for the everyday hunter. Located just 20 miles east of Stuttgart, Arkansas, “The Rice and Duck Capital of the World,” we have some of the best rice and soybean field hunting you will find. Time tested and proven fields for 6 decades. Timber hunts have been added and will take place just off the WRNWR as well, bringing back a tradition formed more than 50 years ago.
Our proximity in the flyway provides you with a variety of species of ducks. From mallards and pintail to gadwall, teal and geese, each hunt will provide you with the opportunity to take a wide range of birds.
Situated in the middle of Arkansas County, the World Famous Mack’s Prairie Wings is only a short 20 minute drive away for any and all hunting needs or just a trip to see what’s new in the hunting gear world. Or take a visit to Rich-N-Tone headquarters next door and see where the legendary Butch Richenback turned and tuned calls in his shop. You may also run into the current World Champion of Champions, John Stephens, while in the store.

Boone, as he was called, was a true pioneer in the duck hunting business. Along with the McCollum’s Stuttgart Hunting Club, the Daniel Boone Duck Club is among the oldest in the state.
Boone and O.V. Gosnell hunted mainly river bottom land in the mid 1940’s and were put in charge of furnishing 50 ducks at the request of Charlie Hammans for a banquet in Stuttgart. Charlie was a local gunsmith and well known among locals. After fulfilling the request, Boones and Charlie’s friendship grew. So did the opportunity for duck hunting commercially.
Boone competed in the annual duck calling contest in Stuttgart around that time, finishing 6th in his one and only attempt. His larger than life stature, both physically at 6’5″ and personality coupled with his outgoing nature, made Boone many friends quickly. He never seemed to meet a stranger.
Along with his success with duck hunting and his word-of-mouth advertising around Stuttgart with Charlie, Boone changed to prairie hunting on the family farm with his brother Clyde and brother-in-law Pete McCallie in the early 1950’s.
Boone and his wife, Eleanor, moved a trailer in next door, affectionately known by hunters as the ‘Daniel Boone Hilton,’ to accommodate the growing number of out-of-town hunters which of course grew into out-of-state hunters. Eleanor would serve breakfast from the house and serve soup and salads at lunch in the club’s infancy.
Today, the longest tenured hunters have been hunting annually for more than 40 years. It is that family atmosphere that keeps Boone’s legacy alive today, even in his absence, with stories of his adventures told as if they were by his side only yesterday.
A memorial to Daniel Boone Bullock can be seen at the Grand Prairie Museum on Park Avenue in Stuttgart. It was dedicated by a handful of the hunters he had shared many hunts, laughs and stories with over the decades. It is with that same desire that we look forward to many more hunts with you in the future….Lord willing.

Terry Dan Bullock
Terry Dan began guiding in his youth for his dad. He not only guides the fields we hunt but also farms them with his brother, Stevan, who together have Bullock Brothers Farm. Terry Dan and his wife, Joan, a retired school teacher, have two sons, Cody and Scott. Terry Dan’s call of choice is his Taylormade Acrylic he has used for decades.
Cody has been hunting the family club since he was 6 years old. His passion for hunting extends from the family duck club to the deer woods and anything outdoors. If he is not guiding hunters you will likely find him in a tree with his bow. Cody also co-founded Gemini Financial, an independent insurance and investment firm located in Little Rock. Hunting has always been a lifelong calling for Cody. He enjoys every minute he gets to spend with our hunters on a daily basis. Cody’s calls of choice include his RNT Original, RNT Short Barrel, RNT Daisy Cutter and Echo Meat Hanger. Cody’s Yellow Lab, Remi, should be a welcomed addition to the hunts this season.
Ryan has been guiding hunters in the area for more than 20 years. He is a graduate of the University of Arkansas and he and his wife, Lee, live in St. Charles with their daughter, Abby. During the ‘off-season’ you can find Ryan running his local farming operation. Ryan is an avid turkey hunter and bass fisherman as well. His call of choice is anything Rich-N-Tone and will have Skeeter, his Black Lab by his side this year.
Trey Fowler is one of our newest additions. He has been a junior guide for the last 3 seasons with DBDC. Trey is the co-founder of Gemini Financial in Little Rock and is an avid hunter. His calls of choice include Echo and Rich-n-Tone. Trey is married to his wife Lori and has 2 kids aptly named Gage and Drake. Trey played college football at the University of Central Arkansas and continued on into semi-pro afterwards. When not hunting, you can usually find him coaching youth football in Maumelle.
Being a lifelong resident of Arkansas, I’ve hunted all over the state for 30 plus years. Daniel Boone Duck Club definitely has the best field hunting on the Grand Prairie and the White River Basin.
We have witnessed a true East Arkansas hunting experience at Daniel Boone hunting club over the years. Having hunted, as well as leased fields in the prairies region since 1996, by far the Daniel Boone fields produce quality with consistency year after year. Hunting with Cody and Terry Dan is a true duck calling and killing experience that we look forward to each and every duck season.
My name is Bob Venske and I’m from Edgerton, WI. I have hunted at the Daniel Boone Duck Club annually since 1972. I have hunted with three generations of the Bullock Family and all became friends, over 40 years of great duck hunting memories that I will never forget. I still make at least one or two week trips to the farm for some of the best hunting in the U.S.
I have been hunting at Daniel Boone Duck Club since 2000. I live in Wisconsin and hunt the Mississippi Flyway, but my love is hunting the flooded fields in Crocketts Bluff, Arkansas. My hunting buddies and I make the trip twice a season and have never been disappointed. I love the friendly family experience so much I bring my family for a third week of hunting each season. If you’re looking for a great hunt alongside great guides, look no further, the Bullocks’ knowledge of ducks and appreciation of God’s country is like no other.
