Moving to Polar Bluff

Postby CUTemDOWN » Thu Jul 13, 2006 8:49 pm

I'll be moving to Poplar Bluff probably around next April. I was just wondering if anyone could fill me in on the area at all. I'm going to get a boat when I get there. I'm looking at a 16ft boat but was curious if in this area of the state I needed a mud motor? I would probably get a 25horse hyper drive if I need one or a 40 horse outboard if not. Any info on the area would be appreciated. Thanks

Poplar Bluff is close to both Otter Slough and Duck Creek Conservation Areas, both of which are in Stoddard County i believe. If your like me (hunting public land alot) this is a very good thing. Otter Slough is known to be very productive as far as public hunting goes.

Around Poplar Bluff, you probably wont need a mud motor in those hills, but I havent hunted over there. If you move farther east toward where I live the mud motor could definetely come in handy, but like I said you probably wont need it around PB. Dont know if the duck hunting is very good in Butler Co (Poplar Bluff), but I do know rice fields are moving farther and farther west in SE Missouri and I know there are some in Butler Co. They may be a good bet if you can get in on hunting them.

Thats about all I've got b/c Stoddard Co is as far west as I usually go. Good Luck, and if you have any more questions I may be able to give you more info.
