2008 Snow Goose Report

October 31, 2008 by

The Minnesota DNR 2008 Migration Report is reporting numbers of snow geese entering northern Minnesota. We are always happy to see Canada freeze up as it pushes these birds south.

A good-solid freeze is our first chance to look at the 2008 / 2009 snow goose migration. According to their reports:

Thief River Falls:

"There still remain a large number of (Canada) geese but they are in very large groups (40-100) and have been observed field feeding in harvested soybean fields. Some snow geese are in the area as well."

Thief Lake WMA:

"Some geese (mostly Canadas, but still some snows) are present and a few are being taken in the CHZ."

This is all good news to us. It's a little early to get too worked up about the spring snow goose hunts but we can't help it. Early migrations of snow geese means the tundra ponds are freezing over but more than likely it also means that the snows are eating themselves out of the area. That means good numbers for our hunters in South Dakota next spring.

We'll keep you posted but in the mean time, we suggest calling Dean now to put your name on a trip now. We're starting to fill up hunts and you don't want to miss out on this year.
