    Dare to be Different How many snow goose decoy spreads have you driven past over the years? Seriously, think about it. What did you notice? I swear most snow goose decoy spreads are close to the same. They consist of 300-600 snow goose decoys (usually windsock type), around a 4-12 flyers...

    by Nick Roehl Snow goose hunting has been a love/hate relationship with me. Growing up in North Dakota we are invaded by these white devils each spring and fall. As a young hunter, I always marveled at the sheer numbers of snow geese that seemed like an endless string of white and blue specks...

    With Jason Mitchell The formation of the decoy spread and how the pocket is positioned contributes tremendously to how birds approach and drop into the spread. Hunters as a rule worry about or place a heavy emphasis on many details that aren't nearly as important as the shape and size of...

    E-Call The spring snow goose season in North America is legal through a Conservation Order. This order allows hunters to use electronic calls to help them fool lesser snow geese. I have been hunting snow geese for eight years in the spring and I am convinced that an electronic call is a must...

    The pellet count in shotgun shells is useful information for hunters and reloaders. Sometimes manufacturers' shot counts are hard to find. People commonly post on the DHC Shotshell, Reloading, Ballistics, and Choke Forum requesting pellet counts for various loadings. For my own use, I...

    By Chris Hustad Getting snow geese feet down into your decoy spread is easier said then done I think snow goose hunters spend the most money out of all species of waterfowl hunters (excluding what some duck hunters pay for their boat/accessories). It seems that no matter how many...

    By Erik Laing As waterfowlers, we are often the do-it-yourself types. After all, when it really counts our equipment needs to simply enough, work. It's important when you're trying to trick the wariest of opponents, protect us from Mother Nature, and keep us comfortable. It's no wonder why most...

    By Chad Haabala Each evening when I watch the sun sink down into Montana, I put another X on the calender and tally the number of days left. Not the number of days until my birthday, and no, not the number of days until Christmas, it's something even better than that. I'm talking about early...

    By Erik Laing (kiskadinna) Every year, without fail, there is a new gadget that comes along - designed to improve the lives of duck hunters. But in reality, many quickly fade in popularity because they just aren't useful. However, every once in a while something comes along that truly does...

    By Marvin McDonald ( J J Mac ) I have investigated the effect of shot size and velocity on penetration in waterfowl. I decided to publish the results because others might be interested as well. The recommendation most commonly encountered in the DHC Forums for adequate penetration for clean...

    Peas Without a doubt, the introduction of layout blinds is one of the biggest assets to field hunters in the past decade. Every year, existing models get makeovers adding better modifications. There are many brands on the market, and many models can be found of each. I've hunted out of most of...
  15. The Honey Hole
    There has been a lot written about shooting shotguns and the different roles of shot size, chokes, etc. It seems to me that every article I have read about shooting agrees on one thing; you can have the right choke with the right load, but if you cannot shoot, it won't matter. In my opinion...

    By PJ Maguire Nothing will cause wary waterfowl to stay clear of shotgun range like lifeless decoys. Allowing your duck or goose decoys to appear alive or have motion will increase your success in the water or field. Motion will bring birds closer to the decoys providing better and...

    By Chris Hustad Resident Canada goose populations have exploded in recent years all over the country. It's like night and day comparing the amount of geese around compared to the previous decade. As a result, there's more and more hunters taking the field each September, and for good reason...
  19. The Honey Hole
    By L. Cater (aka greenster) Here's the story on the Mossberg 835 shotgun. A friend purchased it for $25. It somehow made it to the bottom of a lake for 6 days before it was recovered. When it was brought to me the outside was clean, but I could not put in a shell or even budge the action. In...
