Head Waterfowl Guide

Dax is a relentless waterfowl hunter with a passion for putting people on hunts they won’t soon forget. He cut his teeth hunting public land in the Arkansas River bottoms of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. He’s chased ducks and geese for 25 years across Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas. He’s banded ducks with Ducks Unlimited at Oak Hammock Marsh in Winnipeg, Canada, and in eastern Arkansas at Five Oaks Lodge where he also studied waterfowl and wetland conservation, ecology, and biology. Won his first 12 gauge when he was 11 years old by coming in first at an adult open duck calling contest in Paris, Arkansas. “I approach waterfowl hunting a little different than other hunters. Scouting is key, everybody knows that. When scouting and I see a field or waterbody being utilized by numbers of ducks and/or geese, I don’t stop there. It gets my brain thinking about the “why”? Why are these birds using that particular habitat? What food sources are they utilizing, row crop or natural browse? One species of duck/goose or several? Are they being driven by weather or hunting pressure? I take a deep dive into understanding all those pieces of the puzzle as a tool to help me put together the best plan of attack to ensure the highest probability of success for harvest.” Day in and day out he puts in the work to ensure our clients have the best experience possible during their time at Lazy J Outfitters.
