Today the hunting picked up some from yesterday. High field was 18 birds with this bonus yellow neck collared Ross goose. It was banded 8/10/2004 as an adult. I would estimate there was at least 100,000 snows on the lake during the day and others roosting on smaller bodies of water here and there. Low […]
Sunday was slow hunting. The wind blew very hard all morning 35 mph with higher gusts. Everybody saw very few birds. A trip to the lake showed us very few birds returned to it mid day. Friday there was 900,000 birds on it and that afternoon was a very impressive flight. Lower and south winds […]
Another average day hunting snow geese in Nebraska. High field was 25. The wind blew very hard today. It’s suppose to do the same tomorrow. I’ve been getting a lot of calls about the snow goose migration. Many are worried that the all the birds are moved north. Some have however there will be more […]
Congrats to Hunter on a nice pair of snow geese. Today hunting was average high field shot 23 and low shot 11. The flight tonight was very impressive but the birds were really high with no wind. The next couple days the wind will be a lot stronger so the birds should be lower to […]
Today the wind blew pretty hard. Too much wind can be just as bad as not enough. Ideal wind is about 10-15 mph. Curt hunted a group today and they had a good day shooting 22 snow geese. We set another spread today. While setting the snow goose spread we had plenty of snow geese […]
Yesterday we set spreads and unpacked gear at the lodge in Nebraska. I went to the lake in the middle of the day to see how many birds where there. I was glad to see a good sized raft of snow geese. Using google maps measuring tool I estimate the size to be 1.3 miles long […]
Field conditions for those coming into Nebraska to hunt snow geese this weekend is dry. Meeting time is 5:15 am at the lodge. A map with directions is in your confirmation packet. The above picture of the two banded snow geese that Up North Outdoors, Inc. snow goose guide Curt shot Monday as he hunted […]
Nebraska snow goose hunting was good yesterday. Hunters shot birds in the morning but afternoon was slow. They ended the day with 25 snow geese.
Yesterday all of the fields quit hunting around noon. We were able to pull all of the decoys and load them. Monday we will organize everything and Tuesday we will head for Nebraska. The last day the four fields shot 19, 13, 9, & 4. Hunting was a little slow side.
Plenty of birds in Nebraska but in the morning there was no wind. They ended the day with 26 snow geese. The above picture if from 2/19/16. We already have a higher high field than last spring.
Today snow goose hunting was good. High field shot 44 snow geese and second high is the picture above with 43. Low field shot 1. It has been a very good week both for those hunting our hunter in Arkansas and Nebraska. We pulled two fields today and hopefully two more tomorrow. Our plan is […]
Hunting was good today. We had two groups out. One group of snow goose hunters shot 35 and the other 28 with a nice trophy yellow neck collared ross goose. Bird pour back from the north today and flew out very high tonight.
Another good day in Arkansas hunting snows. High field was 127 and low was 8. We didn’t see much of a migration even with the strong south wind. Hopefully tomorrow the wind will not blow so much and the geese will move a little more. Too much wind is just as bad as no wind. […]
Great day in the snow goose field. High field shot 111 snow geese with a banded blue goose. Second high field shot 108 with a banded blue. Low field shot 18. Very good hunting today. The decoying snow geese were mainly out of high migrating flocks. What a difference a few days make.
Wicked warm weather in Nebraska today. It hit almost 80 degrees. Curt said a lot of snow geese migrated north. There is more to come as we saw good snow goose numbers in Arkansas today. The field shot 38 birds with 2 hunter. Very good snow goose hunt.
Our first full day of hunting in Nebraska for snow geese was good. Up North Outdoors snow goose guides Curt and Cody with 2 hunters shot 60 snows. One was a ross goose banded in 2005 as an adult. Curt say there is a lot of birds in the area. Hopefully this good hunting will […]
Snow geese pushed north today. All of the fields saw plenty of birds. Some fields had birds that would work while others just watched the migrating flock fly right by. There are lots of birds flying over the house in the dark as I type. High field was 37 snow geese. Our Nebraska group shot […]
When snow goose hunting you just never know what is going to happen. Some of my best hunts are on days when I thought the hunting would not be that good. Today was one of those days. Arkansas has been abnormally slow hunting for us this year. Today was not one of those days. There […]
Today was a little better. The morning had a hazy fog which helped. High field shot 37. Low field shot a zero. There was two fields that didn’t see much. The field that shot 18 birds got a bonus band. Nothing too special about this banded birds. It was banded in July in Northwest Territories. […]
Today 11 was high field. The rain held off until afternoon. I got an call from on old boy that live near the refuge in Nebraska. His guess was there is 700,000 to 800,000 snow geese there right now. He may be right or wrong on that number but he has watched the birds there […]
