Elk Chute Lodge

Elk Chute Lodge is the premier lodge in the Bootheel of Missouri & by far the best choice for lodging while hunting with us in the flooded rice fields.  Elk Chute is a local, family owned lodge that is setup specifically with the waterfowl hunter in mind.  From the dog kennels to the bird cleaning area, nothing was overlooked during the building process.  The lodge is only about 5 minutes from our HQ & within 10 minutes of the majority of our hunting grounds, making it even more ideal for our hunters!  After a hunt, you won’t find a better place to relax with your friends & family, & possibly even make some new friends around the lodge.  While staying at the lodge, you will be right in the middle of rice country which means you’ll be right in the middle of the ducks & geese.


  • Large Commercial Style Kitchen
  • Sprawling Dining Room
  • Large Living Area with Big Screen TV
  • Bird Cleaning Area
  • Dog Kennels
  • Game Room – Pool, Darts, Foosball, etc.
  • Large Covered Patio & Decks
  • Fire Pit


From the pool & foosball tables, to playing a game of darts, there is plenty to do in your “down time” after a hunt.  Chat with everyone else in camp about the birds, or take a nap before you cook dinner, you won’t be looking for anything to do!  You’ll even find grills just outside of the lodge for your crew to cook on.  If you decide not to cook at the lodge, there are several places to eat nearby, as well as the famous Strawberry’s BBQ in Holcomb, MO.

Our clients that have stayed in past, said that when they hunt in the Bootheel of Missouri again with us, they will no doubt be staying at ECL.  Just walk outside at night & you’ll most likely already be listening to ducks & geese around the lodge even before your morning hunt even begins!

Unbeatable Hospitality

From the moment you walk into the door, not only will you be impressed with the entire atmosphere, but you will immediately notice the amount of work & attention to detail that was put into every aspect of the lodge.  The Worrell’s will make your entire time at Elk Chute as enjoyable as they possibly can from the time you pull into camp.  You can find more information on the lodge at www.elkchutelodge.com from rates to availability.  Their dates fill up fast so we recommend booking as early as possible!
