Here is the truth on St. Charles Duck Clubs. There are a few clubs that hold a lot of ducks, and several duck clubs in between all of them, that on the right day can kill a bunch. There is alot of pressure in the bottoms all season long. There are a few very expensive places that offer memberships, and some of them dont even do that. Some are owned by local businessmen, and used for entertaining and such. There are several places that are $2,000 to $4,000 that have a house or a trailer on them. One thing is for certian, on the flight days, most clubs are as crowded as the public places.

There are some real Characters down in the bottoms that own and operate the clubs, and a few hundred "people that know everything about duck hunting". There is a bit of a rivalry between them all as it relates to rumor mills. I don't buy much into them. I have hunted the "finest" and the "most crowded" places in the bottoms, and killed limits at both on some days, and not fired a shot on other days. More expensive generally means less members per acre etc. and maybe a nice place to hang your boots and have a beer.

My advice is if you join one, take it for what it is worth. You are paying for a convenient place to get out and hunt. I would check to see if doves, ducks and geese are included, because some do not offer all of them, or charge for them separately. 2008 and 2009 kill numbers were a bit odd because of flooding and weather. I would look at the past 5-7 years of kill. Go by number of birds harvested / number of members and try and get a birds per hunter / per day average and you will see if you get a good value. Almost all keep kill sheets.

I can get a list of names and numbers for you if you send me an email. I went through this same exercise several years ago.

Donald's Duck Club is a private waterfowl hunting club located in the heart of the Mississippi flyway in Portage Des Sioux, Missouri. Donald's Duck Club members enjoy 5 in-ground blinds covering 40 acres of corn and Japanese millet. We also offer on-site sleeping quarters and a place to relax.


5 in ground blinds covering 40 acres...holy smokes...weren't calling and working each others birds at all were you?

My buddy did the count on that, he said that was a very conservative estimate. He said he thought it was more like 1 million plus.

I was lucky enough to hunt a neighboring property the last Monday of season, the day it snowed, and saw quite a show coming off that place. I'm not sure if a place like that is good or bad for the rest of us poor folk.....I'm going to guess bad as those 800K have no reason at all to leave that property.

Knowing the guys who did the count, one of them being a USFWS biologist who is also a very close friend of mine, and the other who has been doing counts for a very long time probably 20+ years, I believe what they have to say. They called me the second they got done, and said officially they wrote down 900k but thought it was a rather conservative estimate, they believe it was more like 1.1 million.

they did a ground count, ducks were flying about 10 - 20 min before dark. From what they said it was a helluva show. Seems that all those bottoms ducks fly right at dark, I was hangin out at purdy earlier in the year they were everywhere as soon as LST was done.

I''ve heard stories about Cuivre that when the guides are taking members out in a boat that the ducks will flush up in front of the boat and sit right back down in the boat wake.....by the thousands.

Greenheadsmoker you cant even count that high. And for that prostaffer, inflating numbers like that. Always seeing and shooting the most and biggest. :nana:

They do that on a daily basis and they just flooded the big rest lake ducks have been pouring in but not a million of them. Must have a lot more ground than I think they do if they are holding that many horseshoe grassy and cuivre might have a close combined.
