SPRING SNOW GOOSE

SNOW GOOSE HUNTING GUIDE

KANSAS - SOUTH DAKOTA

We finish our year with the spring snow goose hunts.  We start our conservation hunts in mid February in Kansas wrapping up in Kansas in early March.    We take a small break and then finish our season in SD in mid March and finishing in early April.

Millions of snows (not including ducks and dark geese) migrate through Kansas and South Dakota every spring to get back to the breeding grounds.  It’s truly an amazing sight.  The difference between the spring migration and the fall migration is the fall migration happens over a period of months.  The spring migration happens over a period of weeks and sometimes days all depending on the weather.

A guided spring snow goose hunt during the spring migration is something everyone should experience.  There will be days where we will be under hundreds of thousands of migrating snow geese that will  literally take up the entire sky.  The spring hunts are a conservation season, so you are allowed extended magazines so your shotgun can hold 6-8 rounds, electronic callers and in most of the states we hunt there is NO DAILY LIMIT!

That said hunters need to have realistic expectations about these hunts.  There is a reason these birds are so over populated.  They are very tough birds to hunt.  Rest assured your guides will have a full arsenal of top of the line audio equipment and gear to do our best to fool these wary birds!

GUIDED SNOW GOOSE HUNTS

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.

The first is migrator sets.  Migrator sets are large spreads of wind socks set on traditional flight lines. The spring migration happens rapidly with new birds pushing anytime the wind switches to the south.  One day these sets can be dead and the next 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 silhouettes 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.

My group has hunted all over the USA and Canada for Waterfowl. My hats off to Graham and his crew. He runs a great show. Their gear is great, their efforts are greater. We are all about our retrievers, Graham made sure that was a priority. No other guide service has ever made sure the set up for our dogs was so important. Super grateful for that guys!!! We had a couple of magical days in S. Dakota with Maxxed Out Guides and will definitely be returning!!
