We are nestled right in the center of the southern most portion of Southeast Missouri, bordering one of the nation’s oldest refuges, Big Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Big Lake can hold hundreds of thousands of ducks at any given time throughout the season. Along with bordering Big Lake, we are sitting between several major refuges on the Mississippi Flyway that gives us the opportunity to see thousands of migrating waterfowl each and every day. Our flooded timber has quickly become a bestseller. Our guided hunt guests can expect at least one day in some of the best flooded timber hunting the southeast has to offer. Our timber duck hunts take place in seasonally flooded bottomland hardwoods as well as buckbrush/scrub swamps.
We are situated in one of the nations largest flyways that ensures us that we will typically always have a large concentration of ducks on or around our hunting properties.
We offer fully guided duck and goose hunts along with some self guided hunts.
