Big Creek History
Big Creek Waterfowl Club is owned and operated by Barry Barnett. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, duck hunting the flooded backwaters of the Mississippi River and Delta in both Mississippi and Arkansas, creating a growing passion for the sport of Waterfowl Hunting. Currently, as a senior executive with a major multi-national corporation. Like many other Waterfowl enthusiast, I found choices for excellent waterfowl hunting limited to either finding affordable land to purchase, lease, hunting with traditional guides, or being lucky enough to have inherited prime Duck Hunting property. Unfortunately, my family background lacked prime duck hunting property heritage. Hunting with traditional guides almost turned me off to the sport completely. I like to use my own duck call, watch my own dog work, and especially enjoy and appreciate our future waterfowl enthusiasts, our children, learning to do the same.
I have spent a considerable amount of time, energy and money investigating hunting in the mid south until I settled down years ago in the Hunter, Arkansas migration route area for my main headquarters. I have put together thousands of acres of private, prime Duck and Goose Hunting in the Wheatley (Hunter), Arkansas area, about 7 miles north of interstate 40, approx. 3 miles east of Hwy 78 on Big Creek. We are about 15 minutes east of Brinkley, Arkansas, and about 1 hour west of Memphis, Tennessee or about 1 hour east of Little Rock. We offer many hunting areas consisting of pits, blinds, flooded timber, sloughs, and breaks, in rice, corn, Milo, and bean fields.
