Hunting and Fishing on Missouri's Big Piney River...
Missouri's Big Piney River is a favorite of many hunters and fishermen and flows through a largely undeveloped countryside of dense forests with few signs of civilization. There are no major hazards on Big Piney, though some minor rapids can be found in several areas.
Anglers will find an abundance of rock bass and smallmouth bass. Hunters will find excellent populations of wild turkey and deer. Frequent sandbars offer great riverside campsites. The river can generally be paddled and fished year-round.
Towering limestone bluffs covered with pines, and hardwood forests of maple, oak and ash, provide habitat for kingfishers, pileated woodpeckers, herons, wood ducks, squirrels, raccoons, deer, turkeys, otters, beavers, minks and muskrats. Autumn brings a change of color to this forested area and offers spectacular vistas for photographers.
If you enjoy the strike of a bass or the call of wild turkey, you're going to love fishing and hunting the Big Piney River at Wilderness Ridge Resort. There's plenty of good size fish and lots of deer and turkey. Access is quick and easy right from the Resort.
