  • Smaller groups of less than eight hunters will hunt with up to 8 hunters per field. Even so, a smaller group can get a private hunt for an additional fee.
  • Fourteen is the minimum age to hunt in mixed groups. However, we will allow younger hunters if you have a private hunt (8 hunters or pay the extra fee). Of course, we encourage youth hunters, but it has to be a positive experience. Snow goose hunting, at times, can be fast-paced, which we've seen overwhelm some younger-aged hunters. 
  • Obedient dogs are allowed in private fields. Otherwise, they are not. 
  • One person in your party has to be the contact person. They will be the person receiving all communications about the hunt.
