Dirty Rice Outfitters is the only local Outfitter in the Bootheel of Missouri. Three counties (Pemiscot, Dunklin, & New Madrid) make up the "Bootheel" or what a lot of people call Southeast Missouri. We have been guiding since 1999 when some of the very first rice fields were introduced here. Dirty Rice Outfitters is the ONLY guide service in this area that is 100% local - our crew was born and bred here. We do it all on our private and family owned property so when it comes to flight patterns, knowing what the birds are doing, weather, and how birds will cooperate, or what the birds will or won't do, we are the BEST in the business here in Southeast Missouri. We have five main refuges within 30 miles of us - one of them being Big Lake WMA which is only about 5 miles from our lodge. It's also the second largest refuge in the nation for waterfowl, with potential of holding up to 1.5 million birds during our season.
