Spring Snow Goose Hunt in Saskatchewan
1-10 Guests • Lodge • Private • Guided
Expect to have tremendous viewing opportunities of all the varieties of waterfowl migrating back to Saskatchewan. At the beginning of the migrations season, the Canada geese usually arrive first. The snow geese will follow as soon there are open water bodies large enough for their massive flocks to roost. During the hunt you can expect to have your decoy spread buzzed by a wide variety of waterfowl including Specklebelly Geese, Canada Geese, Mallards and Pintails. Your field guide will help remind you that these species are out of season during the Spring Snow Goose Hunt but that both Snow Geese and Ross’s Geese are in season.
All pricing is in USD.
Add-on non-hunting guests for an additional fee to be selected when booking.

GET PREPARED FOR SPRING SNOW GEESE
Because snows are in the midst of their long trek to the arctic breeding grounds, they fly in large numbers. You may think you saw large flocks of snow geese if you have hunted with us in the fall. In the spring, we typically count in the 10’s of thousands how many birds are in a flock.
20 GEESE PER DAY LIMIT
With a generous per day limit of 20 Snow Geese there is plenty of shooting action to come on your hunt. In the spring, the days are long with early mornings. This means a light breakfast and a departure to the field usually before 4 am.
DECOYS AND MORE DECOYS
The flocks come into the area in seemingly endless waves. The oldest adult birds tend to lead the way with the juvenile birds still sporting some grey feathers will bring up the tail end of the migration. These birds have been educated all the way up the fly way so it is extremely important to have well hidden hunters and high quality decoy spreads to look like a feeding flock on the ground. That usually means we bring out every white decoy we have.

Early morning breakfast around 4am and then head out to the field to set up the decoys and blinds for a morning waterfowl hunt. The morning hunt is a great experience with lots of Snow Geese, Canada Geese, Specklebelly Geese, Sandhill Cranes and ducks filling the skies. We use many Snow Goose decoys, flyers, and rotary decoys, as well as electronic goose call to our birds.
Around 10 am or when we limit out we head back to the lodge for brunch and relax until we are ready to venture out for our evening duck hunt. After our evening shoot, we have prepared for you a home-made supper, and spend the night relaxing and relive the day’s hunt.

This service is included in your waterfowl hunting package however if you want to participate in cleaning the birds, it can be a fairly quick process.
All birds headed back into the states must have a fully feathered wing attached to it for evidence of sex and species. You may donate all your birds as well. Any birds left over are given to landowners/locals or taken to the butcher and made into jerky, no bird goes to waste. Shipping of waterfowl is not allowed by Saskatchewan law, so hunters must accompany the birds back to the US in a cooler.
We strongly recommend that you clean and check your shotgun before you arrive to Canada for your waterfowl hunt to make sure it is working properly. For those who do not want to deal with bringing their own firearms into Canada, we offer shotgun rentals. You have a choice of a 12 gauge TriStar Semi-automatic and 12 gauge Winchester pump action shotgun.
More information about declaring firearms, and how to bring them across the border can be found online.
