Manitoba Spring Snow Goose Hunting


Join us in Manitoba Canada for some of the finest decoying snow goose hunting you’re ever likely to experience.  Tired of chasing those high-pressured snow geese in the Lower-48 and shooting nose-bleed high birds with triple-B’s?  Then it’s time to hunt them over small mobile spreads of high-quality full bodies, or light and compact silo-socks where steel 2’s, or even 4’s, perfectly get the job done.

As featured on Beretta’s Waterfowler’s Edge (click link to view), this Canada spring snow goose hunt is the perfect destination in mid-May. Go back to the other side of the flyway to catch hold over flocks of migrators fattening themselves on waste grain – real suckers for decoys.  Typically morning and afternoon hunts, guests may fish for trophy trout in between or in lieu of afternoon hunts.

Follow your guide to the carefully-scouted, snow goose hunting location where you will be involved in the morning’s ritual of setting up goose decoys and putting the finishing touches on the layout blinds. It’s not a complicated process, spreads are usually 300-400 decoys and easily deployed within 15 minutes.  You will be spring goose hunting over Avian-X and White Rock decoys.  High-tech live digital recordings of live snow geese are used.

Bring boots and gear that are appropriate for the mud, because it may get muddy during our spring thaw.  If needed, we’ll break in the field for a snack that your guide will provide. Spring Snow Goose hunts typically will run until limits are achieved or about 5:00 p.m., whichever comes first. The snow goose decoys will then be picked up and we will drive back to the hotel for dinner and relaxation. These hunts produce beautiful snow and blue trophies for your game room and occur during a time that waterfowl hunting cannot be had elsewhere in North America

Customer Testimonials

In 30 plus years of hunting I have never seen anything like it.

eimg_3658_275x220“I was hoping for a good goose hunt.  We had a great goose shoot instead.  The first day was awesome.  With only 3 hunters, we shot 60 snow geese, 9 Canadas and 18 ducks. In 30 plus years of duck hunting I have never seen anything like it. All I could think was that this was only day one! The last day ended with mallard limits including one band and a bonus honker.”

After traveling with I recommend them to you without reservation.

doug%20larson_200x272I have been hunting ducks, and traveling places to hunt ducks, for just about 30 years now (and started long enough ago that “old style” camo was the only camo). I promise you that I have run across just about every combination of guide, outfitter, travel agent, and indian chief that there has ever been in the hunting travel business. After traveling with I recommend them to you without reservation. Ramsey Russell is the guy that is meant to be in the hunting travel business. He doesn’t get tangled up in frills like some agencies; quality hunting experiences are paramount so unless it accompanies unequalled wingshooting, you’ll have book the wine tour elsewhere. is nuts and bolts, gunpowder and mud. They will get you to your destination, get you home, and make sure everything works the way it’s supposed to in both directions. He takes this business personally and is never too busy to unravel occasional travel problems – he’ll call you on your cell, he’ll do it after 5 pm or on a weekend. He’s done it for me and he’ll do it for everyone, every time. Ramsey loves duck hunting, and when he is not arranging hunts for his clients, he hunts ducks with close friends and family. is purposefully a family company, a specialty company that does just one thing really, really, well: They deliver quality bird hunting experiences. I respect that.  Isn’t that just the kind of outfit you want to do business with in the first place?

Great trip from start to finish! layed out all the pre-hunt checklist and travel documentation, and Ramsey and Anita answered all questions.  Makes booking great trips like this very easy. The guide worked relentlessly to find and put us on the birds. As a result, the hunting was great. The lodging and food was top-notch. Had great hunts morning and afternoon.  At the lodge enjoyed great meals and great company of other hunters and our hosts. Great atmosphere all the time!
