Southeast Missouri’s Premier Self-Guided Waterfowl Hunts
Why our Daily Lease Program? Experience. We have successfully been in the daily pit lease business for over 9 years now. Each pit has a comfortable False Floor built in it, so that you are never standing in mud or water while hunting, which means you as well as your gear are cleaner & dry throughout the hunt.
We operate our Self-Guided Hunts out of a few highly proven pits giving us the best odds to put you on birds during your trip to the Bootheel. Our permanent spreads are already in place for you with over 500 decoys. Each pit that you may hunt is also used for our guided hunts as well, so there is never a worry of being put in a less than proven field. Missouri also has much lower License Costs Compared to Neighboring States. Our hunts are targeting traffic birds, so a larger spread is a neccesity!
Harvest opportunities include mallards, pintails, wigeon, green-wing teal, gadwall, northern shovelers, specks, & possibly even snow geese! We take care of all of the pre-hunt chores for you besides last minute decoy adjustments for the given wind, but making the birds finish is up to you!
How Our Self-Guided Program Works
Arrive the afternoon before your first day of hunting & meet up with our crew at our Guides’ Quarters where we will talk about the recent bird activity/patterns & answer any questions you may have about your upcoming hunts. Then follow us to to the farm you will be hunting to check everything out. Once we arrive, we’ll discuss the best route in & out of the field to the pit via ATV/UTV, what tactics have been working recently, & answer any of your last minute questions! From there, it is all up to you & your crew to make the birds finish!
Your first morning out, you’ll arrive to a well-brushed pit with decoys waiting on you. Change up the spread for whatever the wind may be & set your motion decoys that you brought before shooting light. Then jump into the pit & get ready for the birds!
Our Daily Pit Lease Program’s goal is to put you underneath a proven & consistent local flight line, with a large spread of decoys, all while being well hid inside of a comfortable pit! We strive to bring together the best combination of an easily accessible pit, comfortability during the hunt, & plenty of bird opportunities while hunting!

ATV/UTV’s are highly recommend to get from the parking areas to your pit. Most self-guided groups that have hunted with us consider them a necessity but we do have a few groups that opt to hike in & out!

Did a self guided pit lease and couldn’t be happier with the location and blind. Ice made for a tough and physical hunt breaking ice but we had a great time. Communication was great and did no feel like a money grab. They asked how we were dong and gave insights on conditions and flight patterns. Would definitely recommend.
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.
Third year hunting with Fowl lifestyle. Started as guided hunt, then self guided, now annual lease. Always professional, respectful and quick to respond. Can’t go wrong
