In 1985, David Ziegler, Sr. put together a group of hunters to purchase a tract of prime green timber located in the L'Anguille River bottoms. This was to become the Lucky Ten Hunting Club. Brothers David, Jason and Hunter spent high school and college years hunting this property with their father and his friends.

For years, the Zieglers and their friends enjoyed some of the best duck hunting that Arkansas has ever offered. As time went by, the thought emerged that a proper hunting club should be a place where family and friends are welcome to come and enjoy hunting as well as each other's company, all sharing what Dave Ziegler, Sr. called the "noble pursuit" of duck hunting.

Eventually, the Zigs began wish for some field hunting opportunities to complement our green timber. In 1998, Larry Reddmann, a leading Harrisburg entrepreneur and farmer leased Hunter two prime pits and a club house on Highway 14, known as the Red Brick House. This marked the beginning of what was to become the Three Rivers Hunting Club of today. With Larry's expert help (he was an accomplished duck hunter), Three Rivers Hunt Club club grew to over 3,000 acres of prime duck and goose wintering habitat. Though we no longer maintain that much acreage, the club hunts across two river systems and three counties.

Poinsett County is such rich habitat for large and small waterfowl alike, that the Zieglers began to notice more migrants, year over year, than just birds! As an annual itinerant hunter of the snow goose swarms, I eventually noticed Three Rivers, and Three Rivers noticed me! And when I began to slow down a bit, Three RIvers and I both realized that we were a great fit, and the rest is history! And that's how I became the Owner and Operator of Three Rivers Duck Club.

The goal of Three Rivers Hunt Club is to maintain an affordable, family and guest-friendly club with as many sporting opportunities as possible for our members. The advantage of such a club is the opportunity to hunt with a quality group of guys who have access to an unusually large amount of duck hunting real estate.

One of the big challenges for any club is good communication and hunt scheduling. Since we often have 20+ members in a season, that challenge is daunting! That's why we built this web site!

Keeping this in mind, please use our web site, the labor of love that is threeriversduckclub.com! (You're looking at a little piece of it right now!)

Use it to post anything you'd like that's pertinent to hunting or club life. Please make sure to consistently check the website for updates, utilize the available resources, and begin the habit of depending on the website for your information. Members use the private side of the site to schedule and log hunts, while we all use the public side of the site to discuss fun and useful stuff.

To those of you who've been with us for a while, THANK YOU for all you've done to help build Three Rivers Hunt Club over the years. To those of you who are new members, I'm looking forward to meeting your family and friends as we all enjoy what the good Lord brings down the flyway together!
