Our close proximity to Catahoula Lake, 38,000 acres of waterfowl wintering grounds, and the Mississippi River creates a “funnel” effect that brings the best that waterfowling has to offer to Honey Brake. Located on nearly 20,000 acres of the Old Louisiana Delta Plantation, we have 65 duck blinds located in agriculture fields and moist soil areas within our Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP).
Of our nearly 20,000 acres, almost 9,000 acres are set in a Wetlands Reserve Project (WRP) tract for development of water control structure, making it the largest single-owned WRP project in the state. As an additional benefit to the WRP project, we are seeing a naturally occurring restoration of habitat, which is crucial for sustaining a population of upland birds like quail, woodcock and doves as well as migrating wintering waterfowl and shorebirds.

Catahoula Parish native Drew Keeth, CEO and waterfowl guide for Honey Brake, LTD has been an avid outdoorsman from an early age and grew up hunting the cypress brakes and flooded grain fields of our Sportsman’s Paradise of central Louisiana all his life. Drew worked in the boating industry for most of his life but also developed and managed several different hunting clubs and guide services in central Louisiana, including managing recreation and wildlife on Louisiana Delta Plantation. Drew’s passion for hunting is exceeded only by his off season obsession of preparing exceptional habitat for wintering waterfowl through moist soil management techniques that produce the most abundant food sources for ducks that are possible. Having been a waterfowl guide for over 23 years, Drew has developed the knowledge of everything duck…from flight patterns and habitat to decoys and dogs his hunting experiences have led to help establish Honey Brake as the premier waterfowling operation in North America.
Drew’s commitment to wildlife has also been demonstrated in his leadership and support of numerous wildlife conservation organizations. Having served as President of the Cenla Fantails Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, committee member of Delta Waterfowl and Ducks Unlimited local Chapters and active member of the Central Louisiana Hunter Retriever Club as well as having a seat on the LSU school of coastal and conservation. Drew understands and works to give back to the outdoors that he loves and cares about. Drew is also committed to our youth! His wife Lacey and their children, Karlee and Kolby are the light of his life but Drew has always supported efforts to encourage the development of young hunters into a life of hunting and respect of wildlife. An avid supporter of the LDWF youth hunt weekends Drew has shared his time and Honey Brake Outfitter services to help ensure that young people get a unique opportunity to experience duck hunting at its’ finest.
In Drew’s words “To be a great guide you have to have a servant’s heart, the will to please, and a passion for waterfowling. Anyone can hunt for two or three days but providing the experience of a lifetime for sixty plus days straight is what makes the professional staff that we expect at Honey Brake”.
