Missouri Waterfowl Hunts

Pricing is $250 per gun/ day for up to 6 hunters. $225 per gun/ day for 7-10 hunters. Our Missouri waterfowl hunts include a professionally guided duck hunt, comfortable transportation to and from hunting locations, delicious breakfast in the blind, and high-quality decoys set up ready to go. Each duck hunt will start 30 minutes before sunrise and will last until we limit out or noon, whichever comes first.

Hunting until noon is not required but is recommended. As part of our management program, we don’t hunt afternoons to let our hunting locations rest to ensure a good hunt the next morning. We only hunt a limited number of groups per season so we don’t put too much pressure on our birds. Lodging is $75.00 per person/ night for our lodge or $100 per room/ night (has 2 beds) at Drury Inn and Suites in Hayti, MO. Which is about 15 miles away from our lodge?

Waterfowl Species We Hunt

Waterfowl Species We Hunt

The mallard is one of the most recognized of all ducks and is the ancestor of several domestic breeds. Its wide range has given rise to several distinct populations. The male mallard’s white neck-ring separates the green head from the chestnut-brown chest, contrasts with the gray sides, brownish back, black rump and black upper- and under-tail coverts. The speculum is violet-blue bordered by black and white, and the outer tail feathers are white. The bill is yellow to yellowish-green and the legs and feet are coral-red. The female mallard is a mottled brownish color and has a violet speculum bordered by black and white. The crown of the head is dark brown with a dark brown stripe running through the eye. The remainder of the head is lighter brown than the upper body. The bill is orange splotched with brown, and the legs and feet are orange.

Northern pintails are long, slender ducks with long, narrow wings, earning them the nickname “greyhound of the air.” Pintails are named for their elongated central tail feathers, which constitute one-fourth of the drake’s body length.

The back is blackish-gray and the rump has a white patch on each side. Two of the long central tail feathers are black while the others are gray margined by white. In flight, an iridescent greenish-black speculum is displayed. The bill is blue-gray with a black stripe along the center to the tip, and the legs and feet are slate-gray. Female northern pintails have a dark-brown upper body with a buff or gray head and lower body. The speculum is a dull brown or bronze. The bill is blue-gray blotched with black, and the legs and feet are slate-gray.

Although male ring-necked ducks superficially resemble their counterparts in greater and lesser scaup, their peaked, angular head profile, distinctive white bill markings and uniformly dark upper wings distinguish them.

The back and scapulars are darker brown, the rump is blackish and the tail is blackish-brown with a U-shaped white band on the rump. The bill, legs and feet are black. Most subspecies are uniformly large and pale and exhibit the characteristic “honking” call.
