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.

Waterfowl Hunting Opportunties

While hunting in the flooded rice & bean fields of Southeast Missouri, the time frame of which your hunt takes place will greatly determine the waterfowl which you are most likely to have the opportunity to bag. Early season hunts tend to bring a more mixed bag, while late season hunts tend to focus more heavily on the notorious green-headed Mallard. Mallards, gadwall, green-winged teal, northern shovelers, & pintails are the most common ducks that we encounter on a day to day basis. Specklebelly geese as well as Snow Geese are also a very likely possibility while hunting the flooded fields.

What to Bring

  • Warm Clothing & Rain Gear
  • Ammunition (1 or 2 Shot Recommended)
  • Shotgun
  • Waders (Knee Boots Minimum)
  • Camera
  • Face Mask/Paint
  • Snacks

How & Where

With us, you may hunt a pit one day & a blind  the very next.  Specklebellies, snow geese, & every type of puddle duck you can think of is a possibility when you are hunting the flooded fields of Southeast Missouri.  We have some pits in turnrows while some are in the middle of shallowly  flooded fields.  We also have several above ground blind setups that make for some extremely comfortable hunting situations.

Staying Informed

Our goal is to keep you informed informed about your upcoming trip with us. The weather plays a major factor in our day to day bird numbers.  We manage several farms around us specifically with the goal in mind to hold birds throughout season.

This is a great Outfitter! They go WAY out of their way to ensure you have a successful hunt! We have used them multiple times & they never failed to provide the best hunting experience we have even had with outfitting services!
