ast Missouri is known for fantastic duck and snow goose hunting.  In our area we have Otter Slough WMA, Duck Creek WMA, and Coon Island WMA.  Along with thousands of private acres that are managed for waterfowl habitat and hunting. 

Southeast Missouri is a bottleneck for migration flights.  Just follow the rivers and you can see why.  Geographically we sit right in the middle of the Central flyway.  

Riverland Outfitters hunting areas include 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.  Snow Goose Conservation Order Season will begin the first of February through March.  We can hunt waterfowl for five months.

Our Middle zone area is very near to Otter Slough WMA, the states leading public waterfowl hunting area and refuge.

Our hunting locations in the South Zone are located near Black River and Coon Island, 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 flooded timber, we have a diverse group of places to set up and hunt 

Southeast Missouri Duck Hunting Guided and Unguided  Hunts Middle and South Zone 

Riverland Outfitters offers Guided Hunts, Do It Yourself, and Pit Rentals  in Missouri's Middle and South Zones.      

Pit Rental may or may not include a pre-set decoy spread.  That depends on what you want.  If you want a spread already set and then you supplement with your own we can do that.  The pit is ready to hunt, brushed, the field is flooded, and we will put you in an active field.  We do not leave our decoy spreads in field.  Sets will need to be placed if needed.            

Guided Hunts include a guide for each group, transportation, and the blind and setup for the days hunt . We hunt morning to 1:00 PM.   
Meals are not included with any guided hunts.  Hunters will stay in town close to many restaurants and retail stores, or you can lodge in our country home close to hunt locations. 

When conditions are muddy in the winter, the use of an atv may be required to travel down field roads to avoid rutting up fields roads and getting your vehicles stuck.  Be prepared on a self guided, pit rental, or do it yourself hunt to have your ATV or UTV with you.    

Dogs  We ask that if you want to bring your dog to work,  that is okay on a self guided or do it yourself hunt.  If the dog is a seasoned hunter we can make prearrangements for the guided days.  A good dog is an asset and a pleasure!
