October 27th Hunt

 Today we had another great hunt with 14 geese being harvested.  We had 0-5 mph winds most the day and that hampered us with many flocks just hanging at 50 yards.  The full moon effected the flight with the morning hunt not being very productive but then in the afternoon the birds decided to fly out of town and eat some corn instead of grass!  As you can see by the big smiles, it was a fun hunt and Bryce and I had a blast hunting with all of them.

This full moon and bright skies will bring down some more of the "calender" geese.  We could use some stronger NW winds with this full moon to help the geese migrate here faster. 

Even though there isn't any snow on the ground and its not December, we are still killing good numbers of birds.  Give us a call and we'll get you out on a memorable hunt. 

Just a reminder to all our hunters...  Our December weekends are starting to get booked up along with the weekdays during that first week.  Don't miss out on some of the best hunting of the year, book NOW!  Also we are filling up our dates for spring snows.  Call Bryce or myself and we'll get you in the books.

Weekend Hunts

We opened up our "Hot Corner" field on Saturday but things didn't go as planned.  Unfortunately we had thick fog that blanketed the area and kept the geese grounded for most of the morning.  The fog lifted by noon but most geese decided to eat grass and loaf around the rest of the day.

We tried to get the group to come back for Sundays hunt but everyone already had prior engagements to attend to.  So Bryce and I decided to take Aubrey and Skylar out for a father-daughter hunt.  We knew if the fog could stay away we were going to shoot a limit pretty easy.  It only took 45 minutes for the 2 of us to shoot our birds and the girls enjoyed running around retrieving our geese!  We only shot into 1 flock so hopefully the geese stay this naive. 

The time to kill some geese is upon us!  These geese are uneducated and very willing to decoy.  The flock we shot into circled us 3 times trying to come back in and land.

New Geese

These last 2 weeks have given us a fair amount of new geese in Rochester.  It seems like everyday there is more and more birds flying around!  The best part about these newbies is they are starting to break the refuge line and come Saturday they are going to find out what its like to make their Last Pass! 

Just a reminder that our December weekends are starting to book up so if you plan on hunting with us this year give us a call ASAP and we'll get you in the books.  Also this last week we've booked some more groups for spring snows.  Dates are going fast so don't hesitate.

As most of you that hunt with us know, I had to put my black lab Remy down last year.  As we come upon the 1 year anniversary of her final day I wanted to post a few pics of her and the last snow season she was apart of.  She was 11 so her hunting duties were limited to half days during the spring of 2011.  She was a great family dog and one hell of a guides dog!
