2018 Snow Goose Photos

The 2018 spring snow goose season was an exceptional one. It was one of the best spring snow goose seasons we have seen since we began in 2001. What made it so good was the snow geese had an exceptional hatch, but just as important, the weather was good. It was never too cold or […]

2017 Snow Goose Photos

Our 2017 spring snow goose season was a shortened version this year. We only guided Arkansas opting to not hunt Nebraska. Because of this, instead of the typical 40-45 days in the field we hunted only 26 days. The weather got off to a warmer start. During the timeframe that we hunted there wasn’t any […]

2015 Snow Goose Photos

We can’t talk about 2015 without discussing the weather. This year’s spring snow goose hunting had a number of weather challenges. The best snow goose hunting is normal consistent weather. We want to avoid the extreme weather conditions. Too hot or too cold is never good for spring snow goose hunting. Our Arkansas snow goose […]

2014 Snow Goose Photos

There were a number of weather challenges this year causing us to postpone more days than in any year in the past. Much of the season was unseasonably cold with many days 20-30 degrees colder than normal. Mother Nature gave us a couple crippling ice and snow storms that froze our equipment into the ground. […]

2013 Snow Goose Photos

The 2013 spring season was our best total harvest with 5835 snow geese harvested. Among these birds there were 8 leg bands, 1 yellow neck collar, and one double banded bird with a $100 reward. There were also three blue phase Ross geese but only one was a prized mature adult. Arkansas: It was our […]

2012 Snow Goose Photos

Our 2012 spring season was our best since 2007. Total harvest was 5516 snows with four neck collars (Yellow, Red, Blue, & White), 15 leg bands, and one double leg banded bird with a $100 reward band. We also shot two rare blue phase ross geese. Kansas Recap: All of our KS hunts were moved […]

2011 Snow Goose Photos

Our 2011 spring season was one of our better years. Total harvest was 5366 snows. The weather was much better than 2010. We shot 11 leg bands and one white neck collar which is a pretty low for the number of birds we shot. We also shot 3 blue phase Ross geese. All of these […]

2010 Snow Goose Photos

The 2010 spring was a challenging season. We intentionally shortened it so I would not be away from my small children as long this year. Unfortunately during this condensed timeframe the weather was less than ideal. We postponed about a week’s worth of hunters giving us even fewer days in the field. We ended up […]

2009 Snow Goose Photos

The 2009 season began with high expectations and ultimately it ended up our being our best season in Missouri and our second best overall. Our Missouri hunting started with a bang on Feb 13 with a 90 bird field as the first snow storm of the season moved through the Mound City area.  We did […]

2008 Snow Goose Photos

The 2008 spring season was a slower year for us. Weather was the big story or bad weather I should say. Storm after storm dumped rain, snow, and ice on us periodically throughout the season. This below normal weather coupled with a below average hatch resulted in our harvest being lower than the last couple […]

2007 Snow Goose Photos

The spring of 2007 was an above average season. Our Missouri hunts got off to a muddy start but bird numbers were strong and the hunting was good. South Dakota was great but short lived. We arrived in northern SD about the same time as the birds. There was wave upon wave in the air […]

2006 Snow Goose Photos

The spring of 2006 we harvest 4442 snows geese. We had 4 zeros and 3 fields that were at the century mark, one 100-bird and two 99-bird days. The zeros were a result of extremely cold weather that made for some pretty tough hunting for a few days. Three of the four zero’s took place […]

2001-2005 Snow Goose Photos

These are our early years and we didn’t keep the records or take the pictures that we do now. You may also notice the decoys are not nearly as realistic. It was before I partnered with Damian Kuzmin to start our decoy company Deadly® Decoys, Inc. There have been a lot of advancements in snow […]
