    So where is a guy most likely to kill a Pintail in Arkansas on public land? I already have a couple of mallards mounted and the next one I really want to mount is a Pintail. The first ducks I ever shot were two Pintails that I doubled up when I was like 14 down in Louisiana hunting with my uncle. Didn't get one mounted so I'd love to get one to remember that first hunt. I'll never forget my uncle and the guy with us going nuts over my first duck kill being a double Pintail kill. And there I was thinking to myself all I did was point the gun in the group and blindly pulled the trigger 3 times! :biggrin:

    I'd say try bald knob. Lots of variety of ya can get to a spot first and get it within 20-30 min of shooting time. After that its pretty much all over or want to watch em land in the refuge for the next few hours.

    A flooded rice field around Jan 1 gets my vote.
