Aggravation, long hours, lack of sleep, stacks of decoys, and eventually success are all things that go down with hunting snow geese. While the learning curve for hunting snow geese can be just like that of hunting Mallards, the journey can occasionally make you want to give up and sell off your gear. The best way to abridge this curve is to do your training in the field. If you’re a newbie for spring snow goose hunting, there are several things you have to get in the habit of doing. Have a look,

If you have a small spread, leave lots of space between decoys. For instance, Spread 100 decoys out that look like 150 or make them look like 50 by packing tightly. If geese are showing interest in your decoys, let them work as close as possible before calling the shot. This will maximize your shot opportunities. Remember to move the decoys everyday to complement the changing wind and weather conditions, decoys left out for the wrong wind conditions will have you in the incorrect hunting spot. While calling snow geese, call small flocks that are showing most interest. It is noted that, small flocks often trigger the larger flocks to do the same.

Have the caller set up in the landing zone, as snow goose will center on the sounds providing you great opportunity for gunfire. Learn when to call the shot. Don’t let anyone call unless they sound like a snow goose. No calling is better than bad calling because geese know the differences.

You must make your blind disappear by keeping them well mudded and setting up in low spots or areas of a field with taller vegetation. It is also vital to take control of your retriever; retriever’s head should always a little behind to yours. Avoid standing around waiting for birds because geese will see you long before you see them thereby decreasing the chance of hunting. If possible, hunt on days with wind. The harder the wind blows, the farther down wind you should position the blinds in the spread. Cover up all your blind bags, shell boxes etc…

Remember hunting snow geese has its own ups and downs i.e. you may be a hero one day and zero the next day. Never give up, always put your best foot forward, and hunt with the intention to do everything the fullest extent of your ability. Once you gain sound knowledge on spring snow goose hunting, I’m sure you’ll have successful hunts.
