Still Time Left

All of us here at Last Pass want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!  I know most kids will be going to sleep on Christmas Eve dreaming about all the presents Santa will bring them.  But for all of us at Last Pass this is what we'll be dreaming of.  A giant flock of canadas gliding into the kill hole and everyone waiting for the buzzer!

Tick Tick Tick  Times a ticking on the remainder of this goose season and we still have a ton of birds here and more to the north that need to come down.  If you need to get out one more time this year give us a call and we'll be happy to get you out hunting.

Last 3 Hunts

The last 3 days have continued to be some good hunting.  Saturday we were excited to see a fresh new blanket of snow on the ground.  Bryce and I both thought it'd be a lights out hunt but it was actually kind of tough.  We ended the day with 9 geese but one of them was a really nice one that was banded.  And not just one band but 2 bands on its legs!  Congrats Devon for winning the drawing for the bands!  I apoligize for not getting a group photo but guys left throughout the day taking birds so by the end of the hunt there were only a few of us.

Sunday I had a day off but Bryce went out with 4 other guys.  They saw 1 goose in the morning and killed it and didn't see another until 3:00.  But then the geese started to roll and they ended up with 12.  I'll see if Bryce or any of the boys have pics that we can post up.

Monday was a low key hunt with only 2 of us out there.  Once again the morning was slow with a little trickle coming out of town and the majority of birds heading back into town.  By 2:00 the skies opened up and the geese began to come out in waves.  The birds were once again stubborn but Rod and I were able to shoot a handfull by the time we decided to call it quits. 

We still have thousands of geese in Rochester and we'll be hunting them all the way until January 1st.  Give Bryce or me a call to set up a memorable hunt!

Tuesdays Hunt

The good hunting continued Tuesday.  With all the snow melting the geese have been a little tougher than usual for this time of year but as you can see by the pictures we were still able to have a really nice hunt.  I hope the remainder of the goose season treats us as good as the first week has! 

If anyone is interested in a last minute Christmas present give us a call and we'll set you up with the best stocking stuffer!

Mondays Hunt

What a difference a day can make.  Yesterday we were hunting in nice white snow and then overnight most the snow left and we had our fields brown again.  The geese were pushing out hard again today and we had a good shoot.  I'd also like to congratulate Matt and Julie for both knocking down their first goose today!  Everyone out there had a great time today and thats what hunting at Last Pass Guide Service is all about!

The Hunting Continues

Late season started out great on Thursday with a great number of birds harvested.  Thursday night a cold front came through and after getting their bills shot off on the opener, the birds laid low for a couple days.  Friday Bryce and I took a group out and and the hunting was tough.  We tried our best but unfortunately the number of birds harvested was still only in the single digits. 

We were hoping that the start of the warm up would trigger some geese into moving out of town earlier Saturday but unfortunately the birds still stayed low.  The guys were able to shoot 11 which wasn't to bad but we were hoping for a giant number.

Today the weather finally broke and the warmth had the geese pouring out of town looking to feed after taking a couple days off.  The 7 of us were able to kill our 21 geese in a short amount of time and we were all done by 12:30.

After seeing all the geese fly out today I can say honestly that the fat lady isn't even close to warming up yet on the Rochester goose season!  There are plenty of birds around and we'll be out after them all the way through January 1st.  If you want to hunt give us a call because the action is just heating up.

Late Season Opener

The late season started out with a bang today for all of us at Last Pass.  The day was nothing short of amazing with large flocks decoying perfectly!  We were able to harvest great numbers out of both fields today.  Bryce was picked up and at lunch by the time the flight really started and I was out of the field with my guys by early afternoon.  Neither words nor pictures do today's hunts any justice.  Lets just say there were a bunch of smiles at the end of the day!

We still have room for hunters so feel free to give us a call and set up a day to come and get in on some of the action.

It's almost time...

Tomorrow (Thursday the 8th) the late season starts around Rochester and we have geese flying out of town everywhere!  It's obvious they forgot about hunting season in the 10 days that we've had off from hunting them.  Bryce and I are hoping for some great numbers tomorrow.  We'll keep you updated on the blog and Facebook.
