Father’s Day is June 19th this year, which is the third Sunday in June. It’s the perfect time of year to take a hunting trip with your dad. Pluck-A-Duck offers a variety of hunting opportunities in Arkansas on 20,000 acres of private land. Morning hunts start with a continental breakfast. Then an expert guide can take you and your dad to various fields and sloughs to hunt ducks and other waterfowl. After the hunt ends, you and dad can enjoy a prepared evening meal at the Duck Hunting Lodge. Meanwhile, you can clean your own birds or have them sent to a local processor where they’ll be packaged and ready for you on the day of your departure.
Father’s Day only comes around once a year, so this year why not make it extra special by booking dad a hunting adventure from Pluck-A-Duck? Go with him and it’ll be a great time to bond and make memories to last a lifetime.
Did you know that Father’s Day, as we know it, first got its start in the early 1900s? Legend has it that Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas, organized the first Father’s Day celebration held in 1910 at the Spokane, Washington YMCA. She wanted to honor her dad, a Civil War vet who raised six kids as a single parent. The idea caught on, and Father’s Day became a complement to Mother’s Day, as people enjoyed honoring their parents in a formal way by giving them gifts on their respective days in May and June.
Today, Father’s Day is celebrated all over the world. Typically, most kids get their dad a tie to wear, but that’s a boring gift if ever there was one. Now a hunting trip from Pluck-A-Duck in Arkansas? That’s the kind of gift a dad who likes to hunt will really appreciate. Best of all, if you go with him, it makes it all the better!
