Spring Snows

Postby h2ofowlr » Fri Jan 17, 2014 11:15 pm

Is anyone signed up to hunt spring snow geese? I have been looking at several options, just trying to find the right guide outfit.

Do they have a season here or were you referring to going somewhere and doing a hunt? A little more info for us newbies would be great.

Thanks,

No season in Washington, you have to head to the Midwest.

Habitat Flats if I could afford it. Would like to see their operation in person.

I will be heading to South Dakota in March for the spring Snow hunt there. I'm going with Northern Skies outfitters for 3 days. I'm super stoked and can't wait to get there.

Be sure to give a report when you get back, interested in their operation as well. I've heard good things about their ecallers.

LA Hunter, one of the super mods hunted this location. Looks like quite the set up. Everyone is leaves the field by 10:00 am to allow loafing time for the birds. Sound like quite the waterfowl haven. It would be interesting to check out an older club like this to see how it is managed and the sheer volume of birds that use it.

I am looking at some Mound City options, kind of late in the game as I am sure some are booked a year in advanced.

I believe that there is a spring snow goose hunt. Not sure the dates but know that it goes most years.

I'm probably willing to fill a seat if you are scrambling. Spring snows is straight up killing or "you should have been here last \week" as you know. Tough to time that flight.

Not true Oregon has a late speck and snow season.

Just requires more equipment, decoys and smarter hunting strategies in many cases. Once dialed in and hunting fields there using it becomes much easier.
