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 […]
Today had similar results to the other days we have had the last week. High field was 15. The rest in single digits. We did see birds coming from the north ahead of the storm. Some fields saw more than others. One field had birds circling all day but would bail on them at 100 […]
Today’s results are similar to the last weeks. High field was 22 followed closely by a 21. The other 5 fields saw and shot very few snow geese. I thought hard about this all afternoon and my gut is telling me to move to Nebraska. So the following is what I would like to do… […]
Today was another mixed result day. Almost all of the fields saw high migrating snow geese from the north heading south. Most didn’t want to work at all. High field shot 47 snow geese. All of the other fields were in the single digits. We moved another field around to hopefully take advantage of this […]
Today was slightly better snow goose hunting. High field was 27 with a banded blue goose. The other fields had slower hunting but a few of them did see what seemed to them to be small high flocks from the north.
I drove another 400 something miles today looking for snow geese. After this drive I have a better feeling about the next 11 days if the weather play out as predicted. There is a pretty good number of birds to the south of us. Here is the wind forecast for the next 10 days. It could […]
Today I drove 691 miles scouting without much to show for it. Tomorrow I will head another direction. Hunting today was slow again. My gut feeling is we are just between birds. There are a fair number of days with a south winds in the forecast over the next 10 day. At this point it […]
Today was slow hunting. The wind blew out of the north like crazy. Not much traded around. High field was 8 snow geese. I drove around today and there are still just scattered flocks of 2,000-5,000 snow geese. We have yet to see a huge mass of feeding birds since we have been here. This […]
