Morning hunts typically last from legal shooting time until 10:00 a.m. and evening hunts begin around 3:00 or 4:00 and run until sunset. It is at your guides discretion to run these hunts longer or shorter based on conditions of the day. The last day of a 3 or 5 day hunt ends after the morning shoot.
We run two types of sets for our spring hunts. Migrator sets which are large spreads of wind socks set on traditional flight lines. The spring migration happens rapidly so one day these sets can be dead and the next day they’re on fire. We hunt these sets morning and evening.
The other set we run are feed sets. These are smaller spreads of full bodies and sillohouttes we set up in fields that have had birds feeding in them the days leading up to it. We only hunt feed sets in the morning and then pull the set after the morning hunt. It’s up to your guides judgement to set in a migrator set for that night or get more trucks on the road scouting for the next day.
Parties that book with 8 or more hunters in their party will be eligible for a private field with just their hunting party and their guides.
Smaller parties will be combined with other small parties to fill out a group. Single hunters are welcome! During the spring a typical hunting party will consist of 8-10 hunters.
