Latest December Hunts

All of us at Last Pass would like to wish all of our hunters, farmers and friends a very Merry Christmas! 

The hunting these last couple weeks have been really really good or sometimes really really bad!  Just when things were rolling great and we had snow and birds were new again, the weather warms up and all our beautiful snow melts away.  Then to top it off it rains all morning on us last Saturday creating tough hunting and covering everything in a thick layer of mud!  We're still grinding through it though.  Thursday gave us more snow and 40 mph NW winds that created white out conditions.  Alot of the geese headed for greener pastures... Literally!  We lost a bunch of birds this week which is adding to the tough hunting.  We are still getting out after them even though its harder than usual for this time of year.  We've always told our hunters the truth about how the hunting is and we aren't about to change that now.  So the truth is right now we could go out and shoot 15-20 or we could shoot 0-5.  Its just very unpredictable right now.  The season goes until next Friday, Dec 28th.

We'd also like to remind everyone that the snow goose season is right around the corner so if you haven't booked your dates nows the time!  It looks to be another magical year with lots of big numbers shot out of our fields!  Give Bryce or myself a call and we'll get you in the books.

December Is Here!

Where has the time gone?  Its hard to believe we are in the home stretch of the 2012 canada goose season.  We are still covered up with geese in Rochester and with a little help from Mother Nature we should see a ton more that are hanging north of us in the twin cities.  This coming weekend looks to be more December like weather so hopefully it puts these geese in feed mode and they decide to hang out in corn and bean fields vs. grassy golf courses and city parks! 

We wrapped up another good week of hunting.  Saturday was a tough day but we still ended up with 15 geese.  The group of guys that we hunted are guys that have been hunting with us for years so it was a good time telling stories and throwing insults at each other!  And by the way, I seemed to be the butt of most the jokes on Saturday!  My little buddy Reed picked on me the whole day.  It was nice catching up with everyone and we look forward to sharing the field with you guys again soon.

If you are looking to get out hunting one more time this year give Bryce of myself a call and we'll get you out on a great goose hunt.  The geese are here and now that duck and deer seasons are done lets get out and smash some giant honkers!
