Snows, Blues, and Ross Geese. A snow goose hunting forum to discuss snow goose hunting tips and tactics.
Moderators: DUJUNKIE, yellowlab
Anyone care to offer advise on where to go to see lots of snows when the birds start moving? I don't care too much about shooting, I mainly want to see big flights of birds. Is Virmilion a staging area? Brookings Area?
I have heard Lake Thomson.
I won't hve decoys this year. Might try to pass shoot, or maybe jump shoot.

The snow line will dictate their flyway in SD and ND this spring as the eastern 1/4 of both states have a good snow pack, while western 3/4 has no to minimal snow at this point. Meaning, I think there will be a more westerly migration this spring being a quicker thaw there.

I don't think we got that much snow, to push them too far west because I can look outside right now and see some of my grass, and its melting now.

Usually in the spring you will see them from Mitchell and to the east. Get any farther west of that and you see more dark geese. And right now, there is probably 3 inches of snow on the ground in Brookings today. But its 39 degrees outside right now, so who knows how long the snow will last. Your best bet would be to follow the 81 corrador(sp) north.

I live in mobridge and once the migration starts all i here is geese all day at work. I was worried when i moved here there would not be any snow geese in the spring no. The best part is no one hunts them around here so lots of land and geese that are not pressured.
