Welcome to the Club!
Thank you for your interest in the Drakes Nest Hunting Club. The
club was established and has been in operation since 1985. We
provide excellent waterfowl hunting experiences for our members
The Nebraska-based operation is located on 181.4 acres of Platte
River property in Dawson County near Darr. Hunting is our passion.
Mallards, Canada geese, Whitetail deer and Turkey are the primary
species. Lodging in our rustic cabin, a comfortable heated waterfowl
blind, all decoys and a hot breakfast are provided. The cabin sleeps
6 and the blind can accommodate up to 6 hunters.
Our Missouri-based operation is located on private land near the
Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Holt County. We hunt
Snow and Ross geese during the Conservation Order Season from
mid February to mid March, depending on the migration and
weather. For 2017 we also have access to fields in southeast
Nebraska to provide additional hunting opportunities. The Drake’s
Nest boasts of the most extensive decoy spread in all of Northwest
Missouri, including thousands of stationary and motion decoys,
comfortable layout blinds and electronic callers. Bird cleaning and
ATV transportation to and from the field are also provided.
Lodging is included at the Mallard Point Lodge in Big Lake,
Missouri. The Lodge sleeps 16 with 3 showers and a modern
kitchen. At the Lodge, you will have the opportunity to socialize and
swap stories with your guide and other members and guests. You
can also choose to prepare your own meals at the Lodge,
or dine out.
