Get to Know Us

Missouri Valley Guide Service was founded by Joel Vasek in 1999, from his deep passion for fishing and hunting which started at an early age. Joel spent many years building his reputation by speaking at seminars and sport shows across the country. Missouri River Lodge, LLC was established in 2007 as demand for quality hunting and fishing vacations increased. Soon, Joel acquired additional land and became more in-tune with conservation and land management. Joel's wife Amanda joined the team in 2018.

In 2019, South Dakota Outfitters Unlimited was born. The new name came from South Dakota's reputation for pheasant populations and all other hunting and fishing activities. Missouri Valley Guide Service and Missouri River Lodge are South Dakota Outfitters Unlimited.
