there are tons of guides in that area some good and fair priced. Some are really expensive and really good. Some are cheaper but suck, some may be cheap and good. You have to be careful lots of guys with one field that they set up 20 dozen or so sillocks that snows may fly over but never use and take five to ten at a time to it. Some of them only stay in that area others follow the birds north just depends. Do some research there is no shortage of so called guides around there but a only a few that are really legit. I've never used a guide there just from Missouri and have hunted snows there usually stayed away from squaw creek area though cause there were so many guides it made it hard to get permission to hunt fields. That time frame as it has been stated already is a gamble on what area to go with cause the weather is ultimately what determines where the masses will be. Like last year by the beginning of february when the spring season jut opened most of the birds were already up around that area cause the winter had been so warm. But then at the end of february it all of sudden got cold and dumped a bunch of snow locking them up around that area and pushing them back south of it. But depending on the winter typically that time is good around there or further north. Just know that sometimes the best price doesn't get you the best hunt, don't have your expectations to high because all those awesome videos of guides destroying birds and getting 100+ is probably only a handful of the hunts. Most days aren't like that those are the good days like any other hunting there are good and bad days. When you go don't be afraid to do some hunting of your own knock on doors you never know you may come across a field holding tons of birds you can jump. Some of my best days were from just crawling forever and jumping birds.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.
If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.
