Mallard Farms, Inc. is primarily a rice farm. Duck hunting is during the off season, after harvest until the end of duck season. Paul Bennett, Jr. has been duck hunting at Mallard Farms since 1973. Since then, former Presidents and sports celebrities have hunted along with him, as well as local celebrities and friends. Recently, due to web information found at this site, ESPN Outdoors contacted Bub Whitaker on behalf of Mallard Farms, Inc., inquiring as to Mallard Farms, Inc. being profiled on their show.
The private lodge is scheduled to open this year. Hunting dogs are welcome. ATV's are also welcome. Vehicles other than ATV's are not allowed off of the gravel roads.
