The first day of our Nebraska snow goose hunts was cold. Temps was -6 on the way to the field. Hunting was slow. Hunting success ranged from high field of 15 to low field of 4 snow geese. It was not from lack of seeing birds. There is a ton of them here. They are feeding in massive feeds. Tomorrow […]
Last spread when in the ground today. The forecast looks to be a cold and snowy weekend. How does snow effect the snow goose hunting? Generally you do well while its snowing but after it stops it can get tough. We have snow covers which helps. A couple of the groups of snow goose hunters have moved […]
We met that game warden today. There has been several outfitters moving into this area the last few years and from the sounds of it they have been very sloppy when informing their hunters. Yesterday for example he checked 19 people and 11 of them were written tickets. Most for not having their federal duck stamp. […]
We drove down to the lake yesterday morning and there is a boat load of snow geese on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 300,000 or more. The lake was mostly frozen so we will have to see how Sunday and Monday treats us. Right now Sunday is a high of 19 and low of […]
We arrive in Nebraska late Tuesday. Yesterday we scouted and lined up new fields. Today we will do the same. There are a lot of snow geese in the area. I’d say several hundred thousands bunching up in massive feeds. My biggest concern is the weather. Snow on Saturday and it is suppose to remain below normal cold. Average high temp […]
First I would like to thank the hunters this weekend. It was very slow hunting and most of you didn’t hunt Sunday to allow us to get our decoys out of the ground prior to a ice/snow storm. So far it has not been as bad as the forecast predicted however it rained before the […]
Hunting today was SLOW! Most fields saw a few thousand birds but it is a pretty long day in the field. Hopefully tomorrows 50 degree forecast gives us a push of migrating snow geese. Sunday’s weather is calling for cold.
We are in a bit of a lull in the action as of late. We are having one or two fields hit but we are getting a bunch of fields in the low teens or single digits. Wed high field was 47 and low was 9. Thursday high was 26 and low was 0 but […]
Monday was a very good day. High field was 47 with all but one field in the 30’s or 40’s. Tuesday was slow. High field was 34 but all of the other field saw few birds. The days they migrate we do the best and the days they don’t can be mixed. Overall I think last […]
High field today 35 low was 0. The wind was howling. Average was 13 birds
The last two days the hunting has slowed considerably. It is very apparent that the birds that are here are different birds with a much higher percentage of adults. We believe the cold and snow over the weekend to the north of us has driven birds south. Saturday and Sunday are suppose to be near 60 […]
Another good day. In the high field 4 snow goose hunters shot 65 birds. Average was 38. Its been good snow goose hunting.
Yesterday we did well overall with a 27 bird average. High field shot 60 snow geese.
We got a pretty good rain shower yesterday. For the next few days the fields will be a little wet. Waders or waterproof gear is alway a good thing to bring with these conditions. I expect a big reverse snow goose migration the next few days. With the warm weather a lot of bird had […]
It has been raining most of the night and pretty hard so far this morning. Waders might be a good idea as it is likely to be muddy for a day or two.
All of the listed motels are in Jonesboro close to where we stayed last year. Most of the Suites listed look nice and are newer looking from the outside. One of the hunters stayed at the Comfort Suites last year and said he highly recommends it. I have stayed at the Days Inn one night. […]
