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. […]
Its been a very good week. Much different than the cold we had last year. Tons of juvy’s birds. Here is just a few of the pictures. There are many more pictures just like these from this past week. We shot 1140 snow geese in 5 days. We have all the equipment to be successful. […]
Here is a picture of one of the hunters barrel from yesterday. He had dropped the end of his gun in mud and thought he cleaned it out. I guess not good enough. We take safety as a very important part of our spring snow goose hunts. Please be safe. This could have been much […]
The first week of hunting was very good. We shot 1140 snows. High field was 102 with many over 50 bird days. Low field was today with only 3 birds shot. For whatever reason the bird only flew around for a little over 2 hours in the morning and maybe 30 minutes tonight. Youth duck […]
I have already said the FairBridge is under new ownership. Every group that stayed there this week has complained. I would stay somewhere else if you can find rooms. There is a number of motel within blocks of the FairBridge.
So far we have shot over 700 birds in 3 days. That is a 47.5 bird average. Lots of Juvy’s. Here is that second high field today.
Hunting has been very good so far this spring. Lot of juvy’s. I have not posted any pics yet because we are having internet issue at the new house. Once I have that taken care of I will post some. Yesterday High field was 86 low 13. Today high field is 85 and low field […]
We finished set our snow goose decoy spreads and we are ready for open day 2015. We saw very good numbers of snow geese.
Tomorrow we will set our last 3 spreads. Those of you that are coming in hunting Monday call me on my cell 563-419-3572. I have not decided where we are meeting. We have rented a house instead of staying the motel. There is a very huntable number of snows in the area. We say plenty […]
The FairBridge Inn & Suites is under new ownership and they are not nearly as friendly as the old. We have had several groups call now that say when they checked there reservations it was not there to when we booked we were told one rate and now they have almost doubled it. We ran […]
Because we don’t have a main base like we did in Missouri. We have decided to not bring all of the clothing along with use. If you want hoodies, hats, or shirts call Denise at 563-382-0530 and she will take payment and ship the items to you. It normally only takes a couple days to […]
The snow goose guides are seeing pretty good number of geese in the areas we hunt this morning. One of the farmers texted me saying “they are everywhere today.”
Our snow goose guides Jim, Billy, and Cory arrived in Arkansas tonight. There was a little bad weather in Iowa which added a couple hours to the trip but all arrived safe and sound. They will start getting ready for the snow goose hunts tomorrow.
I made a trip to Arkansas last week to make sure we had a place to stay and look at some of the fields we hunt. One of the farmers we lease ground from has a farm house he is renting to us. There is only room for the snow goose guides to stay in […]
