It’s been a warm & relatively wet spring so far this year, but in the last week it has dried up enough that several of the area’s farmers are getting into the fields & working them somewhat. After a hit or miss season for most hunters in our area, we were fortunate enough to be on the hitting end of the birds this season. It proved to be one of our best seasons to date & we have high hopes for the 2017/2018 season as well!
With the continued trend of more pits going in this spring & fall in our area, competition is poised to be tough again in many areas. Many groups dropped their pit from the last season but were quickly picking up another in the same area, which is a testament to how a 1/4 mile can make a major difference in numbers.

We will be growing into our 4th consecutive season by adding a significant amount of ground to our lineup, as well as doing some additions around our headquarters. We are excited to announce that all of our guides will be back for the 2017/2018 season, & many of our friends who have hunted with us in past seasons have already re-booked for the upcoming season.
There will be a new lodge in our area that we are referring our clients to, owned by some of our friends who farm in the immediate area. If your hunting in Southeast Missouri & need a place to stay, be sure & check out Elk Chute Lodge. www.elkchutelodge.com
Stay tuned to our social media pages, blog, as well as our website for updates throughout the year, specials, giveaways, & migration reports. We are looking very forward to our growth for next season, as well as season itself!
