2011 Snow Goose Hunting Photos

Our 2011 spring season was one of our better years. Total harvest was 5366 snows. The weather was much better than 2010. We shot 11 leg bands and one white neck collar which is a pretty low for the number of birds we shot. We also shot 3 blue phase Ross geese. All of these … [Read More]

2010 Snow Geese Pics

The 2010 spring was a challenging season. We intentionally shortened it so I would not be away from my small children as long this year. Unfortunately during this condensed timeframe the weather was less than ideal. We postponed about a week’s worth of hunters giving us even fewer days in the field. We ended up … [Read More]

2009 Snow Geese Photos

2006 Snow Goose Pictures

The spring of 2006 we harvest 4442 snows geese. We had 4 zeros and 3 fields that were at the century mark, one 100-bird and two 99-bird days. The zeros were a result of extremely cold weather that made for some pretty tough hunting for a few days. Three of the four zero’s took place … [Read More]

2001-2005 Snow Goose Photos

These are our early years and we didn’t keep the records or take the pictures that we do now. You may also notice the decoys are not nearly as realistic. It was before I partnered with Damian Kuzmin to start our decoy company Deadly Decoys™, Inc. There have been a lot of advancements in snow … [Read More]
