Kody Riggan was a dedicated landowner and waterfowl enthusiast with a vision to make duck hunting a family tradition for generations to come. His passion for creating viable duck habitats was rivaled only by the joy of spending cold mornings in the flooded timber with his sons, brother, nephews, and friends.
From a young age, Kody worked alongside his grandfather and father in the family business, Corning Implement. In 2010, Kody played an integral role in forming Legacy Equipment, a John Deere retail agricultural and consumer products dealership with seven locations across Arkansas and Missouri, where he was currently serving as CEO/President. He was a member of the board at Legacy Equipment and the Midwest-Southeastern Equipment Dealer’s Association. He owned and operated Square Shooter Hunting Club and wrote for and was a member of the pro staff for Greenhead Magazine and the Duck Hunter’s Magazine.
The Datto Access within the Dave Donaldson Black River Wildlife Management Area is named for Riggan who passed away unexpectedly on August 1, 2016 at the age of 46.
