Deer Hunting

Duckpond is located in Tensas Parish which is known for having the best deer hunting in the State of Louisiana.  Duckpond enrolls in the Louisiana Deer Management  Assistance Program and receives 50+ doe tags per season.  Members are allowed 3 bucks with 6 deer total per season.  Size requirements vary from year to year but generally bucks must be 8 points or better with minimum 18” spread or 18” main beams.

Duckpond plants food plots year around such as wheat, oats, and soybeans for better health of the deer and to promote greater antler size.

Duck Hunting

Duckpond has a variety of duck habitat that you will find almost nowhere else.  Hunt the famous Mississippi flyway, flooded timber of pecan trees that attracts wood ducks like you have never seen before, or even a green tree well off the river.  Pit blinds in 200+ acres of rice fields are also available on Gum Ridge Plantation just south of Duckpond for an additional fee.

Duckpond generally is allocated 3 alligator tags by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries which are offered to the members by auction.

Nuisance Animals – Hogs, Coyote, and Raccoon

Thankfully Duckpond’s hog population is small but unfortunately there are more coyotes and raccoons than we would like.  Members are encouraged to take all nuisance animals whenever possible.


Duckpond has 90+ acres of private lake and borrow pits with excellent fishing that are naturally restocked yearly by the Mississippi River.
