Bucks-n-Ducks was formed by 2 friends, both Trophy whitetail and
waterfowl hunting fanatics. We enjoy chasing monster Iowa whitetails and
love the rush of watching decoying birds coming into a perfectly set decoy
spread. We are located in Southeastern Iowa. We guide our hunts in
"our own backyard" we have hunted these areas our entire lives.
We also have over 13 years of experience as professional guides and
have guided hunters across the nation.
As most hunters know, Iowa is the big buck hotspot at this time. We
offer outstanding genetics, perfect habitat and great food sources. Our
deer quality is some of the best in the nation.
We are also known nationwide for our guided waterfowl hunts. We
hunt the Mississippi flyway. Mallards, gadwall, widgeon, wood ducks,
blue& green winged teal, as well as many species of Diving ducks that
also pass thru this area. Canadian geese migrate by the 1000's and we
winter many large flocks of locals. Our Spring snow goose hunts in NW
Missouri are legendary.
When you book a hunt with us you are buying experience,
Bucks-n-Ducks is what we do and have done for over 13 years. Most
hunts include lodging, please give us a call we love to talk bucks n
ducks. We have one purpose here, we make memories that will last a

built 20' boats. Heaters, stoves and TV are all part of the set-up.
Some hunts are also guided from comfortable bank blinds. The field hunts
are guided from Avery layout or bale blinds. Large spreads of GHG
decoys are the norm. We go where the birds are and spend countless
hours scouting to put clients on birds day in and day out.
We also offer a "no bird" cancellation policy or change of date
policy if there are no birds in the area during the time of your scheduled

spring snow goose hunts take place on leased fields in NW Missouri near
Squaw Creek NWR and SE Nebraska. These areas see over 1 million light
geese on their spring migration North. With over 11 years of experience
hunting/guiding the spring conservation order season, we know spring
snows. We use large, custom spreads of northwinds, sillosocks, various
shell decoys and GHG full bodies. This assures that we get us
noticed by the birds. There is No Pass Shooting on these hunts, we
only kill decoying birds. Electronic callers and unplugged guns are
allowed. There is a $6.00 license fee in Missouri and a $65.00
license fee is Nebraska. We are now running 2 fields and are able to
accommodate groups of up to 20 hunters at one time. Groups of 8 or
more get their own field. Smaller groups will be mixed in with other
groups to fill dates. These hunts Do NOT include meals or lodging.
We do however assist hunters in locating rooms near our hunt areas.

part of hunting and do occur. These are fair chase hunts for migrating
birds. When you book a hunt with us you are paying for an experienced
guide, access to our hunting areas, the use of top notch equipment and
