Spring Migrator Snow Goose Hunt Canada
The first part of the spring migration is all the older birds that are pushing hard to get to the breeding grounds. They are notorious for only staying in an area for a few hours to drink, eat and rest before moving again. For this reason, the first 2.5 weeks of April are spent in our 2 stationary spreads of 1800+ decoys each. These spreads are in traditional high traffic areas and a sort of "gentleman's" hunts, as the . Hunts begin a half hour before sunrise and go until 10:30am or so. We typically take a break until later afternoon and then hunt until a half hour after sunset. Of course, if the geese are moving all day then we hunt all day. We typically are averaging 25-27 birds per day with 100+ bird hunts happening throughout the season. We take 6 hunters per field but can accommodate more if requested. There is a 20 bird daily limit and no possession limit.
