Our hunts are ran in the most productive areas in Missouri and South Dakota assuring you a quality experience with us.

About this trip
FEBRUARY SNOW GOOSE HUNTING
Location: Kennett, Missouri
Dates: February 7th-26th
Hunt Cost: $200/day/person
SOUTH EAST MISSOURI
In the last decade South East Missouri has become a common wintering ground for thousands of snow geese each year. This is where we start our spring conservation hunts each spring. Situated along the Mississippi River this is a natural migration path as the birds make their way back North to their breeding grounds. In this area we typically hunt over about 3000 decoys as we are mainly targeting migrating birds. We also do all of our hunting in South East Missouri out of large comfortable pits. This is the only location that we hunt that we have the luxury of using pit blinds. A typical day we meet about an hour and a half before sunrise and make about a 15 min drive to the field. We will typically hunt all day so packing a lunch is a good idea. Shooting time is a half hour before sunrise until one half hour after sunset.
Traveling: Kennett, Mo is the city you will be driving to and staying in as well. The closest airport would be Memphis, TN (Roughly an hour and 30 min drive from Memphis)

Within 14 days after booking you are required to make a 50% deposit. With the balance being paid when you arrive for your hunt. Money can be paid by cash, personal check or Credit Card
All monies paid are non-refundable. If you can’t make the trip it is acceptable to find a replacement as long as the party size doesn’t change. If you can’t make the hunt and can’t find a replacement you forfeit your deposit. When we postpone a hunt it is with your best interest in mind. Most of your payment is used to pay expenses preparing for your upcoming hunt. By sending payment you are agreeing to these terms.
We will provide all the cleaning of the birds for an additional $15/day per person. In the past we had offered bird cleaning for $3/ bird, but that can get very expensive on days when harvesting 30+ geese. We will require paying the full $15/day at the time of your deposit so that we can have the adequate supplies with us to do so. If you choose to have your birds cleaned after you have arrived it will be $3/bird. All of your geese will be cleaned, packaged and cooled for legal transportation. We do not pluck the birds, all we do is leave the chest cavity with both breasts and a wing left on. A wing must be left on them for transportation reasons, so don’t ask us to just breast them out for you.
