RE: missouri hunting
Bois Darc is close to Springfiled. It usually has some good dove hunting. I don't know about the quail hunting though. I have hunted the public land around Stockton Lake for rabbits and we saw alot of quail their. It is really thick though. 870 will be a great gun to hunt with, good luck in your search.
