Fantastic Diver day with the Gasperetti Group!

Text Box: Our hunting locations annually stage around 200,000 Canvasbacks during peak migration!

Since 1996 we have been guiding hunters on the Mighty Mississippi river exclusively on Pool 9.  This area is famous for staging the world’s largest concentration of Canvasbacks.  Besides Canvasbacks the area also has consistent gunning for mallards, redheads, bluebills, gadwall, and widgeon.  We commonly harvest over 20 different duck species each season!  The area also provides some very good goose hunting as well. 

All our hunts take place out of one of our large  comfortable boat blinds.  Each boat is equipped with heaters, individual seating, permanent blind and a stove.  A large hot breakfast is provided each morning that will be something you won’t soon forget!!

Each morning you will be hunting over an enormous decoy spread with contest quality callers.  Each year Big River Guide Service ranks #1 in harvest numbers according to the USFW.
