Were We Hunt:
We have property located in the rich soils of the Missouri Confluence – in St. Charles County. We have hunted these fields for the past 13 years with many wildlife management tactics in place. Our property is located 15 minutes from HWY 70 in St. Charles, MO. This property is less than a 1/2 mile from the Mississippi River and is surrounded by privately family owned waterfowl fields. We are very fortunate to have private land owners in this area that have acres of rest lakes on their property that they do not hunt to aid us in holding birds for long durations during migration.

Missouri Department of Conservation Wildlife managed area is only 2 miles from our location with over 1,000 acres of waterfowl area. Columbia Bottoms another MDC property has been developed into a waterfowl managed area which is located approx. 20 miles to the east. Several other MDC properties are directly north of this property along the Mississippi with the migration passing directly over this property. Currently we have 2 joining flooded corn fields (40 acres) with several pit blinds to accommodate the weather patterns. We have 1 - 9 acre natural slough in the middle of the property with one blind located in the middle of this for early Teal season and also offers great Woody shoots and can offer an excellent flight day opportunity. We are currently looking to flood our north lake in 2007/2008 season which will provide both flooded corn and dry land – this field will be from layout blinds and will be closed during the Missouri Deer Rifle Season. Although snow goose hunting has not been a major attraction for our guides – the past two years this property has seen an overwhelming number of Snow geese. There is on site lodge to allow you to warm up, relax before the afternoon hunt, or to play a quick game of cards. We currently do not offer lodging at this location, but there are several hotels within 10-20 minutes from this property.
We also have access to over 2,000 acres in the confluence area for dry land hunts and goose hunting.

Brian “…I started duck hunting 4 years ago…I do not even own a duck call…but I have had some excellent duck hunts with guides Scott and Doug….every time I have the opportunity to join one of them or both I make sure I have sick days…it is a hunt that you will not forget…”
Mark “…I was invited to hunt with Scott in St. Charles this year…I am an avid duck hunter and hunt about 25 days a season for the past 10 years, but I can tell you I have NEVER had a duck hunt as I did this November with Scott and Doug….I killed my limit of Mallards all Drakes and shot two Gadwalls…my limit just added to the overall limit for the others….6 of us were done hunting and sat back as Doug and Scott allowed us to call and work the birds while giving us helpful aid….”
Kurt “…Thanksgiving morning…I met up with Scott for a few hour hunt that AM….we only shot 6 ducks in about 2 or so hours, but I enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about Scott and his true passion for waterfowl hunting and shared in a laugh about his deer hunting adventure…”
Scott J. “…I joined up with Scott and Doug on an afternoon hunt in mid December…Doug is excellent caller and brought some ducks I would have never even tried to call, right into my face….I took my 6 birds with no problems…only fired 6 shots as well - they put these birds in my face…”
