Guided Goose Hunting in Rochester, MN

November 21, 2013 by

We have had a ton of new birds pouring into town from the North and hunting is heating up. With continued cold weather and snow to the North the birds should really be stacked up by Thanksgiving and some amazing hunting in our future.

Weekends are starting to fill up as the hunting gets hot, give me a call no to book your next Rochester goose hunt!

Spring Snow Goose Guide

Spring Snow Goose Guide

August 12, 2013 by

Well it is never too early to start thinking about booking a guided snow goose hunt for the Spring 2014 season in Arkansas or South Dakota.  We had a great 2013 Snow Goose Season in both states and if the reports from the Tundra hold true we should have a great 2014.  The early reports call for an “average” fall flight of birds with the birds breaking the record once again this spring, so an average hatch means plenty of young to trick them older birds into our spreads.
