Snow goose hunting...

6 posts in this topic

Does anybody have any experiance hunting snow geese in either S. Dakota or Missouri? I am looking to take my first trip doing such this spring. Where is the best place to go and is 2 full days of hunting enough? How many shells do you really need?

one thing to know about spring hunts is to plan on being mobile. if you are hunting with a guide usually its a somewhat last minute call as to what town to meet him in. the birds constantly move, so do the hunting oppertunities. as far as how many shells to bring; well that all depends on what you figure your maximum range for your gun is, as well as how many birds are working a spread. my last trip i shot half a case in a day.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
