|Youth Hunter getting shooting instructions on first Snow Goose Hunt|
Hunting snow geese isn’t always easy. Spring time hunting means that every single
bird you see is smart enough to have survived all the perils that the winter threw
their way and are now headed back north. The birds will be wary and often a little skittish. The earlier
in the spring snow goose hunting season, the harder it tends to be at decoying the adult
snow geese until younger birds arrive.
Since you’ve gone to the trouble and expense of traveling to
Missouri for the spring snow goose hunting season, you’ll want to make sure you
get your fair share of geese, and preferably more than a few. The best way to
make sure that happens will be taking advantage of a professional snow goose hunting
guide. The more experienced your guide, the happier you’re going to be with the
Some people aren’t fans of the idea of goose hunting with
the assistance of a guide, they think it will be too expensive, but others
agree that it’s the best way. Many people even gather up a group of their
friends, make a longer outing of the hunting trip and help reduce the overall
Going with a group of people and hiring a Missouri goose
hunting guide will actually save you money and time. Not only will your friends help
lower the travel costs, and the price of guide, but the guide service will
supply most if not all necessary equipment, including decoys as well as scouting and everyone
knows that two of the most important keys to a successful spring snow goose hunting trip is
always having enough decoys and scouting. The guide you hire will supply decoys and have a much
better idea about how and where the spread should look on water or in the field
so the snow geese will think they’re a real feeding flock and decoy readily.
Dogs can be another helpful tool. Missouri has many lakes and ponds some of which
are very deep. The spring thaw also means their very cold. As a hunter, you
don’t want to have to climb in and out of the water each time you get a goose.
By going with a group of people you may have a few of them that have experienced
dogs and won’t mind bringing one, you’ll be able to stay warm and dry while
the dog does all the retrieving. Most Missouri hunting guides will even have dogs,
if your group does not so you can experience the pleasure of working with a
truly seasoned hunting animal.
No hunting guide will ever promise that you're going to get a lot
of birds when you hire their services for your snow goose hunting trip in
Missouri, but having a professional guide along does increase you're odds a lot. They study the
area and the patterns of the snow geese year in and year out. A good guide
will be able to take you to a spot where they think the birds will likely be on that particular day. The guides do a lot
of scouting and are seldom wrong but anything can happen while hunting snow geese.
