CENTRAL MISSOURI SPRING SNOW GOOSE HUNT
With Missouri being such a great welcoming mat for the massive wads of snow geese it also makes for a great place to come and hunt the snow geese in the spring. When people think of spring snow goose hunts or spring snow goose hunting in general the state of Missouri has to be the most sought-after area for waterfowl hunters to gravitate to and rightly so. When the conservation order season was first established there was a big push to hunt South Western Iowa and Northwest Missouri. Since the inception of the spring snow goose season, Northwest Missouri has established itself as the world's mecca and snow goose hunting capital. But, with more snow geese and more area to hunt also comes more outfitters and more freelancers. Northwest Missouri is also becoming the hardest place to hunt snow geese in the spring. With more and more outfitters popping up every year there is fierce competition for hunting ground and pressure around the Squaw Creek NWR people are starting to separate themselves from the mecca that is Mound City. But, for those who have been around for some time know that there are plenty of places still in Missouri that are phenomenal collection points as well as hunting locations. With a lot less pressure and friendlier landowners, we can still hunt the state of Missouri and not have to deal with the crowds that flock to Mound City. There are a lot of locations left in the state that are off the beaten path where the spring snow goose hunting is very productive and the locals welcome you with open arms.
Come and join us for a Missouri hunting adventure and see the fall or spring snow goose migration in full swing. Millions of migrating ducks and geese pass through our area and it is a sight to see with your own eyes. There are no words to describe the waterfowl migrations first and in the famed Golden Triangle. Come and see for yourself one of the spectacles of the natural world and hunt with us this year for ducks and geese in Missouri.
Base price is per person for a 1-2 day hunt. Make it a 3-day hunt or a 2.5 day hunt with 3 nights of lodging for additional fees per person.
2.5 Day Hunt w/ 3-Nights Lodging
Our Guided Duck Hunts, Goose Hunts, & Spring Snow Goose Hunts take place in Central Missouri where there is high traffic during the heart of spring snow goose migration and the fall and winter regular season migration. We try to stay on the birds and move around our area if needed to areas that are concentrated with larger numbers of snow geese in the spring as well as offering semi-permanent duck and goose hunting fields, pit blind fields with flooded crops, and feed field decoy sets for all of our waterfowl hunting options. We like to hunt migration corridors and proven migration routes in the spring, fall, and winter migration seasons.
