What To Expect
Spring Snowgoose hunting is unlike any other waterfowl hunting many hunters have ever experienced. Its an opportunity to extend your waterfowl season past duck season. Snowgoose hunting can be downright TOUGH at times, but the hardships are all worth it when it comes together! Hunting wintering or migrating snow geese, both present their own sets of challenges. Making those good days that much better! Many people opt to hire a spring snowgoose guide service for their hunts. Which I recommend, due to the amount of equipment needed to hunt these geese. Guided spring snowgoose hunts typically start down in Arkansas February 1, moving north into Missouri as the snow geese migrate north. Make sure to do your research before booking your spring snowgoose outfitter.
Snow Geese Harvest
Snow geese can be harvested in many different states including Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas , Oklahoma, South Dakota and North Dakota. We like to concentrate on the southern/central regions of Arkansas and Mississippi and also South East Missouri. These areas concentrate geese providing excellent hunting opportunity. Every Year brings new challenges in the world of guiding spring conservation snow goose hunts. Adapting to those conditions is essential for consistent success in the field day in and day out. This is wear a seasoned, reputable guide is a necessity. Ross geese, snow geese and blue geese can be taken in the spring snowgoose season. Unplugged shotguns, large decoy spreads, and electronic calls are used to decoy geese into shooting range.
Several Styles of hunting can be utilized on guided spring snowgoose hunts. Hunting geese in wintering areas of Arkansas and Mississippi, hunters may use different tactics then hunting Migrating geese in South East Missouri, or states further up the flyway. Different snowgoose guide service will offer different hunts. Some offer “Feed style Hunts”. Hunting a new field daily where the geese were feeding the day prior. This can be an extremely effective way of killing ALOT of geese in a morning or afternoon hunt. But can also leave you watching empty skies, scratching your head if things don’t go as planned. Hunting migrating or staging geese can be a very effective way to target light geese in the spring as well. Setting up large decoys spreads in proven migration corridors can provide some magical days in the field. Migrating geese are much easier to decoy after a long flight, looking for food and water. During typical spring weather geese will migrate both north and south in the spring chasing the snow line. Ultimately getting pushed back south with big winter storms. Migration from both ways provide excellent hunting opportunity.
