Jelk's Bayou Hunting Lodge
Jelk's Bayou Hunting Lodge, est. 1999, is a commercial hunting lodge offering fully guided duck and upland game hunting. Located in the Mississippi Flyway in Northeast Louisiana, Jelk’s Bayou Hunting Lodge is nestled between Bayou Bartholomew and Jelk's Bayou, a major travel corridor for wintering waterfowl entering the state of Louisiana. This location places hundreds of thousands of wintering waterfowl at our doorstep each season. We attract waterfowl to our property by providing optimal habitat such as: moist soil habitat, flooded corn, flooded rice, flooded Golden Millet. Along with providing optimal habitat, we attempt to retain waterfowl on the property through strenuous pressure management. Through these management practices, Jelk’s Bayou Hunting Lodge is able to provide an exclusive and unique hunting experience.
After a long day of hunting relax, unwind, and enjoy the comforts of our recently remodeled lodge. In addition to the lodge, we offer a beautiful outdoor patio complete with a beautiful stack-stone fireplace & large flat-screen tv mounted above, wet bar, and an additional fire pit. Watch the game or enjoy fellowship while you sip your favorite beverage or have a cigar. If the weather is less than ideal, no worries, we can fully enclose the patio and keep mother nature out. Inside the lodge you will find a spacious, open floor plan comfortable for all guests. Enjoy your meals each day, prepared by our professional chef, next to the beautiful stack-stone fire place. Sleeping arrangements are as good as anywhere and never worry about being crowded. We host no more than 8 guests at-a-time but, we provide 6 bedrooms with a total of 8 queen size beds, 3 sets of bunkbeds, 3 full bathrooms and one-half bath. Your waders and hunting gear are stored nicely in a climate-controlled building adjacent to the lodge, only 20 steps away. Guests will get their own locker to stay organized and ready to hunt!
