Southeast Missouri Waterfowl
Experience Great Hunting with Hunters Guiding Hunters 


ast Missouri is known for fantastic duck and snow goose hunting.  River flyways make Southeast Missouri an intersection for waterfowl, along with some great habitat, provides a great staging area for waterfowl.  Our public areas like Otter Slough WMA, Duck Creek WMA, Coon Island WMA, Mingo NWR, Dark Cypress WMA, Wilhelmina WMA, Cain Creek WMA, Ten Mile Pond WMA, along with thousands of private acres that is managed for waterfowl habitat and hunting, makes our area the Premier Waterfowl Destination in the Midwest.

Our primary species of ducks include but not limited to, mallards, pintails, gadwall, teal, widgeon, shovelers, and several more.  It is not uncommon, especially in the early part of the season, to have a nice mixed bag.     

Our hunting areas are located in both the Missouri Middle and South Zones in Southeast Missouri.  This gives us a nice long season in the immediate area running from the first of November to around the 20th to 25th  of January for ducks.  Snow Goose Conservation Order Season will begin the first of February through March.  We can literally hunt waterfowl for five months.

Our Middle zone areas are very close to or in-between Otter Slough WMA, Duck Creek,  and Mingo NWR.  These are some of Missouri's leading public waterfowl hunting areas and refuges. 

Our hunting locations in the South Zone are located near Black River and Coon Island WMA, Flood Way in Stoddard County, along with Butler and Dunklin Counties in Southeast Missouri.    

Take a look at what Riverland has to offer in the Middle and South Zone areas.  From flooded rice and corn fields to South Zone flooded timber, we have some diverse places to set up and hunt
