|Jim Bel's Hackberry Hunting Lodge is located just a few miles off of interstate 10 near Lake Charles, Louisiana. We offer over 8000 privately owned acres of marsh land and have some of the best hunting and fishing around. Our experienced guides have been hunting the areas for years and are dedicated to deliver a pleasurable experience. They will also bring you from the lodge to your hunting blind in less than 25 minutes in most cases. Once you are in the blind, you can hunt duck and geese at the same time while you watch our dogs perform unbelievable feats retrieving. We even had a celebrity dog, Shmoo. She was featured on the cover of the October issue # 13, 2004 of Waterfowler magazine.
