Those scheduled to hunt snow geese this coming weekend need to talk with me before you leave for your hunt. The area that we normally hunt doesn’t have a large number of birds in it currently. The closest place with good numbers is about 50 miles to the south of us but it is extremely […]
Today we are moving to SD. Our hunts don’t start until Thursday but we are tired of dealing with the birds in Mound City. Last Monday was the last good day we had. I don’t think I have even had a year when the tail end was this tough. I thought with this year’s hatch […]
Today is our last two groups in MO. There is a pretty good number of birds on the refuge but we are still shooting mainly adults. Where are the Juvy’s? Typically we are smashing the young birds this time of the year and with the tremendous hatch I’m a little confused as to what has […]
I only need to hear from those hunting March 21-24. Those hunting March 24 on should be in good shape. There are birds showing up just south a Aberdeen in small numbers. Temps look good for snow melting. I would prefer to move those hunting March 21-24 back a week to March 28-31. If that […]
SD Hunters coming in March 21-24 please call my cell phone to discuss option for your hunts. Birds are currently not that far north and I have a couple options to discuss with you.
Today we shot 373 snow geese. The half day hunters ranged from 0-16 while our full day hunts stacked them. The 4 fields that hunted all day shot 29, 85, 91, and 103. We also broke 4000 birds for the year with 3 weeks of hunting left. Tonight we could get up to 3 inches […]
We have a new meeting time due to daylights savings starting March 14.
Tomorrow starts our last week in MO. Hunting has good and if this pace keeps up it will for sure be one of our better years in MO but I have to admit with all the hype of the hatch I guess my bar was set a little higher. We have shot about double what […]
This is why we stress safety! It takes just a split second for an accident to happen. Today a left handed and a right handed shooter crossed shooting lanes and one shot the other in the barrel. Thank god nobody was hurt. An accident is an accident but that split second of carelessness can lead […]
Our guides work hard for our hunters. Their day doesn’t begin or end at the field. It doesn’t begin and end with the season. It’s a year round job to have everything in place for you guys. All of them are working 2-4 hours above and beyond the time they spend in the field with […]
Cory was the first to break the 100 bird barrier this year. Lots of Juvy’s showed up yesterday. The snow goose hunting still remains a little sporadic. We have not had a day where all of the fields have pound the birds but I’m sure we will. High field was 130 and low was 4. […]
Today’s hunting (3/6) was a little slower than the previous 4 but the average was normal. We had two fields that shot 39 birds. My field we shot 24 and got a white neck collared Ross. That is the first neck color we have shot since the 2009 spring. We didn’t get one in 2010. […]
Yesterday was our biggest day of the year…408 total birds harvested. High field was 92 with several 50 plus fields. The confusing part is we had 4 fields in the single digits. Those hunting in the single digit fields saw plenty of birds they just flew over. Why one field they dropped into and others […]
Our snow goose hunts the last two day has been good. Not every in field but most of them. We have shot over 300 snow geese each day. Today high field was 67 and yesterday high field was 88. Good numbers of birds are in the area.
Snow goose hunting remains good for 2011. The snow storm a week ago slowed the hunting for a couple days but its back on now. Its March 3rd and we have already shot over half of what we did last spring in just a few days. I suspect the snow goose hunting is going to […]
Hunting was good yesterday. High field was 50 low was 8. It was the only field in single digits but it likely wouldn’t have been if they could have shot into the snow goose tornado that worked to point blank. Unfortunately it was loaded with Specks which are not legal to hunt in the conservation […]
Most of the snow melted yesterday. There was a big push of migrating snow geese with almost non-stop flocks all day. There were a couple fields in the single digits but all of the others were in the mid-teens to mid-30. We are starting to see more juvy and Ross geese yesterday. Some of the […]
Although the fields are not currently muddy once the 6 inches of snow melts plus some rain tonight might make things a little messy in the snow goose spreads.
Since the snow fall the hunting has been tougher than it had been. Today’s temps should almost take care of most of the snow. Friday high field was 64 closely followed by a 59. On the other side of the coin we also had several in the single digits and our first zero of the […]
The snow stopped shortly after my last post. Still any snow is way more than I would have liked. Some of the groups went out on time while others met later.
