Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters Testimonials

Troy Thompson

This past season (2014) I had a father/daughter waterfowl trip to the flooded Missouri Rice Fields. We spent three days in the field with Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters. As a fellow outdoor services business owner myself, I can tell you I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail, service, and effort Tyler Helton And Ryan Saine put into giving us the best possible hunt we could have! With a good amount of birds the first day, we had plenty of shooting with a mixed bag of ducks and geese! We own a retriever business and had my oldest and youngest dogs with us. Tyler videoed the retrieves for us which was an extra bonus! They were very open to allowing my 15-year-old daughter Valerie, who is a pro staffer with Buck Gardner Calls, join in the calling!

The last day, ducks will be ducks, and they were not cooperating. No fault of our guides. What impressed me was that Tyler and Ryan did not just accept that and have us continue to hunt the same location in the pit blind. They made the extra effort to scout in between hunts and move us to a field in layout blinds to offer better shooting. This involved a whole new set up after the time spent scouting.

Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters give you a hunt to remember! The food was as fantastic as the service! Some days we stayed in the blind and they brought lunch out to us, and some days we went to the lodge and took a break and relaxed before the second half of the day!

If you are looking for a well-guided hunt and service, look no further than Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters!

For anyone who hasn’t spent a morning with Fowl Lifestyle, you are truly missing out. We have a lot of brids here in NW Missouri, but in the bootheel of Missouri, the skies are filled with migrating ducks & geese. And in the heart of SEMO is Tyler & Ryan of Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters! When my son & I showed up, we were greeted with smiles & hospitality. We were asked what we wanted out of this hunt…I replied ” I’ve never shot a speck or a sprig, that would be nice!” At the end of the day we had a huge mixed bag of mallards, teal, shovelers, snows, blues, & true to their word a beautiful speck & big bull sprig. Needless to say, we booked two days this coming year, soon after we returned home. There is no doubt we will return year after year, making memories one sunrise at a time!

If anyone is interested in planning a trip to SEMO and want to lease a pit for a self-guided hunt for a few days I suggest you use Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters. We leased one of their pits for a 3-day hunt a week or so go. This was the second time using them. They were very generous in regards to pushing our hunt back a few days due to all the ice that we had.

If your hunting group likes to hunt a variety of public and private places throughout the season like mine does, the day leases that Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters offers is a good way to be able to hunt a private pit in SEMO and not have to be locked into an entire year lease. The prices are pretty reasonable as well. I would say that the only downfall is that you have to schedule in advance so you just have to deal with whatever mother nature has planned.

I had the opportunity to hook up with Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters this past January (2015) & had a blast. From the planning stages to the hunt, everything was very smooth. Tyler & Ryan were very helpful from answering our questions, working out the dates, meeting us the afternoon prior to the hunt to show us around, & to making sure we were taken care of in every way. The blind was very spacious with dog boxes on each ends and was very well brushed up. The decoy spread was fantastic. If you want a great experience and the chance to shoot a variety of waterfowl, I recommend you give these guys a try. I know I’m glad I did & will be seeing them again in the future.

I want to give a big thanks to Tyler & Ryan for a wonderful trip me & my father-in-law had this month. They have great things going for them, & truly care about their clients. Whatever it takes they will do what they have to do to be sure you get on some ducks. Everything was easy as far as getting everything set up to hunt with hotel ideas, the closest place to get a license, etc. I will be going back next year & we are looking forward to it. If you have not been I wouldn’t choose anyone else in the area but Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters!

My experience with Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters was great! Having hunted many different outfitters in the southern Midwest, my hunt with these guys was the best. Not only did we get put on plenty of birds, but also we were treated as one of their own. The laughs didn’t stop from the moment we entered the pit. Tyler and his crew treat their clients with the utmost respect. The location we hunted was phenomenal and the pit was one of the finest I have been in. I am looking forward to returning to hunt with Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters for years to come.

Tyler & Ryan have a great setup. The booking process was smooth & they were very accommodating with our group splitting up payments. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with open arms, shown the pit, & advised on everything from licenses to restaurants. The pits are fantastic. Well brushed up, stoves, heaters, lights, & gun rests. After a warm day with few birds, they were nice enough to let us try another pit the following day. Very flexible guys & worth the trip from North Carolina. We will be coming back each year!

We’ve been hunting with Fowl Lifestyle for the past couple years, and we’ve had nothing short of a great experience, and great time hunting with the their guides and Tyler. If you’re looking for a great outfitter, you need to hunt with this one. Never a dull moment, plus the service and responses prior to the hunt was phenomenal. Definitely will be making a trip to Fowl Lifestyle Outfitters every hunting season. These guys are great and know what they’re doing.

This is the second year we’ve hunted with Tyler and the guys at FLO and they always do everything they can to put us on birds. They worked countless hours the whole weekend to get ice out of the holes and give us the chance to kill some birds. You won’t be disappointed booking a hunt with these guys.
