Landing runway 18 at butler, mo. Windsock indicated strong but steady wind directly down runway. On final, experienced gusts, but was able to keep angle of descent desired. Flaps 20 degrees, approximately 80 KTS airspeed. Touchdown left of centerline, bounced and in the bounce, a gust pushed the aircraft to left edge of runway. Unable to keep the aircraft on the runway and went off to left side. Recovered control, taxied to parking place and tied down. Noticed that, at some point, propeller had contacted ground. 3 propeller marks later reported on runway. Damage also to nosewheel fairing. No injuries or other damage.
