Goose Hunting

Gateway River Outfitters can plan the perfect Canada goose hunt for you. Our hunting grounds are spread out across Mid and Northeastern Missouri. At Gateway River Outfitters you will be hunting in some of the most unbelievable fields in Missouri. The last few years the goose hunting in the Missouri has absolutely exploded. The number of birds wintering in the area is just simply amazing!

The greater Canada geese are the predominant birds, but we do also winter a number of the lessers as well.We hunt on over 700 acres of crop ground, flooded fields and irrigation ponds. We also cover a 60 mile stretch along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers as well as ground near Mark Twain Lake and the surrounding areas. The rivers are the main roosting area for waterfowl during the cold winter months. We have the ability to hunt these birds on the river as we hold a USCG captain’s license and run a large heated boat.

We provide top of the line decoys, blinds, dogs, calling and (breakfast when in the pit or boat).  Our guides are experienced, incredible proficient on their short reed calls.  Our decoy spreads consist of Big Foot full bodies, GHG full bodies, and the GHG oversized shells, many of which are fully flocked.  We use the best equipment available to increase your chances for a successful hunt.  We take pride in getting the birds up close and personal.   

Your gun, your ammo, and your tags are all you'll need. Gateway River Outfitters will provide everything else for your hunt.  We can even recommend hotels that are just right for you and your party, and even recommend a taxidermy service after the hunt.
