A little about our hunting style and what to expect.

We are simple, a bit "Ole Fashioned" maybe.  We drive to our location, put a little work into set up, and enjoy it.  We are hunters taking other hunters.  We don't mind for our client hunters to help set up.  The kind of hunters that want to be involved.  We are not  worried about fast limits.  We like to keep it as simple as possible, work ducks, watch the ducks, and hopefully we shoot them close.  We may even miss shooting a group of birds because we are sometimes guilty of that, "maybe we should have shot em", one more pass type of thing.  But that's okay.  We just like for em to get  right in the hole with good quality shooting.    

If you want fast action with lots of shooters and a quick pile of dead ducks to post, you may wanna hunt with someone else.  We want to enjoy the experience and the company.  We do our best with some pretty good spots to hunt.  If a blind full of hunters gets limits, great.  But we don't keep score and judge anybody on how many or how fast.  The HOW is more important than HOW MANY.     

We believe its important to focus on the right things within waterfowling, not the fast and immediate recognition or attention that is found in some of todays hunting factions.  Take that for what it is worth.  We want to enjoy the entire process.  We like pics, sharing them with you and others, and do our best to make positive memories.  It aint just about dead birds.  Relationships, conversations, experiences, and retrievers.  The entire process of waterfowling.  I hope we can take ya sometime.            


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.  This is what makes our area the Premier Waterfowl Destination in the Midwest.

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.  From New Madrid county by the Mississippi River to the foothills of the Ozarks.

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, Dunklin, and New Madrid Counties in Southeast Missouri.
