While most people shiver at the thought of summer coming to a close, Missouri duck hunting fans cannot wait to get their gear on and head out to the local fields for duck hunts. Duck hunting in this area can be traced back as far as the market hunting days and south east Missouri continues to be just as popular today for waterfowl hunts. Whether you are an experienced or novice hunter, we believe we have the best guided duck hunts and specklebelly goose hunting available not just in South East Missouri, but in the entire state!
Everyone wants to know why Missouri offers such an incredible experience. Well, I am here to tell you exactly that! The Mississippi flyway has long been a popular migration area for waterfowl. It is estimated that as much as 40 percent of all waterfowl travel through this flyway during migration season. This means that tens of thousands of birds pass through here every year.
Why is this area so popular? As you may or may not know, Missouri recently surpassed Texas as the fifth largest producer or rice, that and more specklebelly geese wintering in the upper portion of the Mississippi River Alluvial Valley ( southeast Missouri). Why is this important? Because rice fields offer the perfect feeding grounds for waterfowl hunting Missouri. When the fields are freshly rolled, it also provides the best environment for specklebelly goose hunting, the Holy Grail of waterfowl!
If you have never been on a guided duck hunt, you are in for a real treat. Our clients range from first time duck hunters to hunters that have been Missouri waterfowl hunting for decades. Why do they choose Show Me Snow Geese? Because we have some of the best hunting grounds in the state and our guides are the best in the business! Most of our guides have been hunting in this area for well over a decade. If you can find a Missouri duck hunting outfitter who’s staff in south eastern Missouri that is better at setting out decoy spreads and calling, you just let us know!
What to Expect on Your Guided Duck Hunts
During most hunts, we use steel pits that we have sunk into rice and soybean fields. This gives hunters an ideal vantage point as the waterfowl come to feed. Our guides will set out decoy spreads using the best equipment for duck hunts in Missouri. And do not worry about perfecting your calling, because our guides take care of that too! You may, however, want to take some notes so you can improve your own calling skills. If you have your own pup, just let us know and you can bring him or her along too (assuming you have properly trained your dog and it is well behaved).
We like to keep our duck and specklebelly goose hunts to a maximum of 5 hunters. Because ducks and geese travel in smaller groups than some other types of waterfowl, this strategy offers all hunters in the group an opportunity to come home with their prized duck or goose. All parties are limited to five, but if you can fill the entire group, you can also bring your own hunting dog!
Lodging 2016-17 South East Missouri
