Bay Prairie Outfitters is owned and operated by Mike Ladnier, who won the titles from both the 1988 & 1991 Texas State duck calling championship, as well as the 1989 Ark/La/Tex Regional Duck Calling Championship. Mike has been a professional waterfowl guide since 1979. Bay Prairie outfitters and lodge was established in 1988, and is located in Midfield Texas, about 80 miles southwest of Houston. We provide experienced professional guides, dogs, white parkas, sillosocks for goose and sandhill cranes and large sets of duck decoys. We pride ourselves in using only the best waterfowl hunting equipment available. We have access to thousands of acres of prime waterfowl habitat that includes rice, corn, wheat, milo, soybean and rye grass fields.
We have 6 goose guides and 5 duck guides with an average professional experience of 7 years plus. There are no rookie guides at Bay Prairie Outfitters. Eighty percent of our clients who return request the same guide. All of our guides have 4 wheelers for hauling equipment into the field.
Our lease holdings stretch out over 5 south Texas counties: Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Wharton, and Victoria, recognized as the rice “Rice Belt” of Texas. Most of the hunting locations are within 30-40 minutes of the Bay Prairie Lodge.
“Come share a duck blind or goose spread with us in the famous Texas Rice Belt where thousands of waterfowl winter. We will do our utmost to insure you have lasting memories etched in your mind that will last a lifetime. Bay Prairie Outfitters is a premier waterfowling operation that takes great pride in offering an outstanding hunting experience to each and every waterfowler.
