Guided Snow Goose Hunting in NY (October-April)

Base price is per hunter per day

We provide Greater Snow Goose Hunts in New York. We offer both Fall and Spring Hunts from October to April. Our hunts are conducted in Traditional Staging Habitats and Resting areas within the Atlantic Flyway. These areas are the traditional regions used by migrating Snow Geese year after year. We hunt Snow Goose on thousands of acres of private farmland in Upstate New York. Our Atlantic Flyway, Greater Snow Goose hunts are strictly fair-chase, no feeders, or farm-raised birds…

There is nothing more magical than watching a flock of thousands of migrating Greater Snow Geese circle down into the decoys. This is a spring spectacle that is unrivaled! Our Guides and Experienced Retrievers will be sure to make sure you have an enjoyable stress-free Greater Snow Goose hunt! Our knowledgeable guides will be happy to answer questions and put your group in the best possible position to be successful. Snow geese are the wariest and most difficult bird in North America to decoy consistently. Decoy spreads numbering in the thousands are commonplace to entice and lure huge migrating flocks within shotgun range. A lot of snow goose success has to do with the weather–unfortunately, this is one factor we can’t control. Rest assured we will do everything in our power to make sure you are on birds during your trip.

Our guests can expect the hunt preparation to start in the pre-dawn hours; where they will meet their guide, sign waivers, settle up balances, and go over what they can expect for the day. Our guides will then accompany you in the field before first light and help you lure these wary Greater Snow Geese into shotgun range using a top of the line decoys. This is hunting and we highly recommend a 2-3 day hunting trip when hunting any waterfowl, especially Greater Snow geese. This allows you to have the best possible chances at harvesting waterfowl and experiencing a huge shoot.

“If you want great action, professional decoy setup, calling and blinds you want Bryce. I would highly recommend hunting with them. Bryce and the crew are clearly goose gurus. What fun and phenomenal results!” - Dan B. New York

Fall Greater Snow Goose Hunts:

This is an on-the-X style hunt and we will be setting decoys together with clients as a team on a scouted agricultural field that the geese have been feeding in days prior to your arrival. Hunting snow geese is a team effort and this requires everyone to pitch in during the Fall hunts to set up and pick up decoys for the hunt. We will very often have some helpers who will be there to lend a hand with the workload of setting sometimes in excess of 2000 decoys… extra hands are often needed! Hunts are 1/2 day hunts and we will typically be out of the field at 12 noon. Guides will then scout and let the birds rest and feed un-pressured in the afternoons. We can often take both Canada geese, Snow geese & Ducks in the field during the same hunt. When booking, be sure to ask about the best times to come for Fall Canada/Snow/Duck combo hunts.

Spring Greater Snow Goose Hunts:

No other time of the year is quite like the action that can be seen on a Spring Snow Goose Hunt! Greater Snow geese have wintered in the typical Delaware/Maryland area and have now started forging North toward their breeding grounds in Nunavut, Canada. We will essentially set a trap and intercept large groups of Migrating waterfowl on a daily basis. It is a migration-based hunt and we will often have thousands of birds migrating through the area each day of the snow goose hunt.

With a migration-style hunt, the success of the hunters is largely in the hands of “Mother Nature, with one day drastically different from the next. This is why we hunt a Full day…. with the middle of the day oftentimes being the most productive time of the day on the classic days when geese are migrating northward. With all this being said please book 2-3 days and give yourself the best chances for success. You have already invested the time and money to come to hunt what is an extra day or two… This is not me trying to sell you an extra day… This is me trying to make sure you are happy.

This hunt differs from the Fall hunts in that all the decoys will be set up for you ahead of time. The group will be required to provide some help to the Guide with the maintenance of the spread during the hunt. Like dusting some snow off the decoys or straightening up leaning decoys etc. before and during the hunt if you are physically able.

Hunts are conducted out of either white Tyvek suits laying out amongst the decoys on padded backrests or from custom A-frame style blinds built for comfort on the coldest of days. These A-frames are a sit-and-stand-to-shoot style wing shooting opportunity and are perfect for older gentlemen and bigger guys. Bryce–Owner & Guide is in his late 30’s and enjoys sitting in the A-frames!! Please book well in advance and request the A-frame when booking the hunt. The white suit style hunts are very different and we will hide laying in and among the 4-5 thousand decoys we set up to lure the snow geese into range.

We will typically break for lunch and walk to the trucks for lunch. Local restaurants will deliver lunches to the trucks and your group can pay the delivery driver on arrival. There is also the option to go sit down and warm up at a sit-down Diner within 10 minutes of the hunt. After lunch, we will hunt for the rest of the day. After the hunt we will clean birds at the trucks and the Guide will take all carcasses to dispose of properly. Bird cleaning and the Possession tags are included in the purchase price of your hunt. These are the “Toe-Tags” or possession tags mentioned in the Bird Cleaning PDF document that was emailed to your Group leader… Once again they will be supplied to you.

This is a magical time of the year! Some truly amazing sights are to be witnessed while Spring hunting. Tens of thousands of migrating waterfowl can be observed on a given day. Canada geese, Greater snow geese, and massive groups of puddle ducks. Call Captain Bryce to reserve your Spring hunt well in advance!

After the Hunt

Birds will be processed back at the trucks by guests or your Guide who will process birds. Guides will breast birds out and leave a wing attached for traveling back across state lines. All carcasses will be taken by the guide to ensure they are disposed of properly. Additionally, most of you will most likely stay at the Comfort Inn and we do not want any bird cleaning.

Many people choose to relax and rest up for the following days adventure by seeing some of the areas scenic destinations like Ausable Chasm. If you enjoy tasting local Craft Beers and Wines.

Check out Ausable Brewing Co, Valcour Brewing Company, The Oval Brewery, and Plattsburgh Brewing Co located right in the same building as the Comfort Inn lodging. If Wine and Ciders are your thing– definitely check out Elf’s Farm Winery & Ciderhouse and Vesco Ridge Vineyards for a great Tasting experience. Recommended formal dining options are Anthony’s Restaurant & Bistro, Latitude 44 Bistro and for more casual Dining check out Mickey’s Restaurant and Our House Bistro.

For those diehards who want to squeeze every bit of action, they can into the day! Guests can take full advantage of our Blast and cast Package, the Waterfowl and Deer hunt Package, and our Fishing and Bowfishing Combo Packages! While you relax and enjoy everything the Lake Champlain Region has to offer. Our guides will be out in the afternoons until dusk scouting birds for the following days hunt. If you decide to preserve your Trophy–we have an exceptional Taxidermist who we can put you in touch with if you plan to have the work done locally.
