Spring snows in ARKANSAS

Postby Duckfire1805 » Mon Feb 06, 2017 10:23 pm

Looking into a trip last week in February this year. In your opinion is this too late in the migration?

Thanks

You're about a year too late to book with any reputable outfitter.... best of luck with the crapshoot you have in picking a guide that still has openings...

Top of the flyway and Eagle head outdoors? They have a good reputation from what i know. Your thoughts on time of hunt?

If it's just I'd get on the horn now and see if there are any guides that have any open seats they could sneak you with a smaller groups.

Pretty sure I saw an article recently where Eaglehead was busted for poaching... like I said, anyone reputable is already booked for this season and you'd be best off dropping the money on your own spread or waiting til next year.

I hear ya, thanks for the info.

Just to clarify Eagle head outfitters is the one with the poaching investigation, Eagle head outdoors is a different company

Yes I will be. Possibly Utah as well if I get a hookup on fields.

Hows the hunting in Utah and ID? doesn't seem like a big flyway (not that I would ever travel there when I'm 2.5 hrs from SD/ND... just curious
If it's not duck season...its one day closer

Never hunted Utah. Idaho is extremely lackluster due to the small amount of geese, even smaller area they use and the Feds ending our season framework right about the time everything thaws completely and the geese start to arrive. Occasionally we kill a few but far from destination hunting... there's a reason we went to Sask this year [emoji38]

I haven't killed a Snow goose in 37 years, but I'm hoping to hunt over BGipson's decoys in Idaho this Spring sometime.
Gosh, I hope I don't get addicted. The wife says I'm not buying Snow goose gear as well as all the other stuff I have for regular season.

Says if I try, she will skin me alive...and throw the rest away!
So the words Fall and Autumn are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world.

Next year talk to some locals who hunt out there. Go through a forum if nothing else. I did that this year on a Monday and Saturday/Sunday we shot in excess of a 100. Made some great friends to boot. Ill assure you they were set up as good as any guide service around.
