Rives, MO - Owned & Operated by Stuart & Jill Worrell

Elk Chute Lodge – (573) 717-0400


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 10 minutes from our HQ where we meet everyone each morning & within minutes of all our flooded fields, 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.

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!

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.

    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.
