3-Day Waterfowl Hunt | North Central Missouri

1-8 Guests • Lodge • Private • Guided


With our strategy of hunting one client group at a time, scheduling breaks between groups during season, and ending hunting at 1:00 p.m. everyday, we keep a low-pressured area to ensure we hold birds like nowhere else, and provide some of the best hunting the Mississippi flyway has to offer.

Our fully guided hunts take place out of pit-blinds and large wooden duck blinds to keep our clients comfortable, while guides cook breakfast and mallards back flap into the decoy spread.

With hunts taking place over extensively managed moist soil habitat, flooded timber, flooded row-crop, and dry fields, we make sure to find the X and give our clients the best chance of limiting out every morning.

Ralls's Trip

Ralls E

Ralls is a graduate of Clemson University, where he studied conservation area management. Growing up in rural Missouri on the family farm, he began hunting at an early age and quickly fell in love with the outdoors. As he grew older he found another love: one for land management and conservation. He began working extensively on managing the family farms for quality wildlife habitat.
