"I take pride in ownership.  I love my farm, my animals, my ducks and the country lifestyle.  I want my clients to have a taste of what I experience every day.  Long lasting relationships start here.   Experience the tradition of the Old South at The Elms"


       - Kimberly V. Freeman

The largest Woman-Owned and Operated Commercial Duck Hunting Business in the South


The Elms Grand Prairie Waterfowl Lodge is located in the Mississippi flyway 15 miles south of Stuttgart, AR. As part of the Wetland Restoration Program (NRCS), our roughly 4,000 acres are designed to be a natural habitat for waterfowl. Elms' fields are designed to incorporate millet, barnyard grass, smartweed, NRCS selected trees and water. We also offer rice, corn and bean fields as well as flooded timber. Kim’s several thousand acre duck hunting land is comprised of fields ranging in size from 40 to 300 acres.


For corporate hunters, we offer hunting packages that are all-inclusive. From outfitting you for the hunt to transportation to the duck blind in the field to the fine dining experience at The Elms, our staff knows how to serve our customers. Just sit back and enjoy your hunting experience and let us serve you.


For the client that wants the freedom to do their own hunt, we offer field leases and lodges by the night or by the season. The waterfowl habitat team at The Elms handles all the field and water management to host various species of waterfowl.
