3 Duck Hunting Properties for Sale in Missouri

3 Duck Hunting Properties for Sale in Missouri

Folks, Arkansas is crowded. Back in the 90s when Stuttgart became the duck hunting mecca, thousands of waterfowlers flocked to the Delta’s flooded rice fields to seek out any farmer who would sell or lease his land. Then, they commenced to killing ducks, a lot of them. Piles of Polaroids adorned cork boards and sagging kitchen tables, chronicling consistent days and weeks of multi-man limits. Mallards, pintails, teal, canvas backs, they were all there.

We remember the pre-MOJO Duck Decoy days when a mailbox with two license plates drilled into either side brought ducks diving down from the heavens. Dads wore the same camouflage they’d been wearing since the 70s, and so did their sons, but the oversized, hand-me-down version; because duck hunting hadn’t really evolved into the big business it is today.

Then, one day, Arkansas became overhunted and dare we say “outdated.” So we started looking further northwest, to Missouri. Still part Delta and mostly all farmland, Missouri duck hunting properties and its hunters don’t feel suffocated by other hunters surrounding the pits and blinds. And while the leasing option is often more beneficial, there are some great places for sale that can sustain the next couple generations of duck hunters.
