Here are some keys to our success – spring snow goose hunting tips.

  • When hunting snow geese, the more calls you have the better. Try using two electronic calls.

  • Arkansas , Northwest Missouri, South Dakota and North Dakota are some of the most popular states for spring snow goose hunting.

  • Gun Loads (for 12-Guages): 3-inch, 3 1/2 inch BB, BBB, or T-Shot in steel are the loads of choice.

  • Choke: improved to full, depending on how your gun patterns with the large loads.

  • Call your state Wildlife Agency for general information on season dates, regulations, and snow goose staging areas.

  • For detailed tips on hunting spring snows, follow us at www.thegooseguys.com, “Strategies for Spring Snows,”

  • Decoying: Most guides use 2,000 or more decoys, but if you aren’t going with a guide, 300 to 400 decoys will do the trick.

  • Arrange decoys in a teardrop shape, large at one end and small at the other with your blind in the center.

  • If the geese aren’t finishing all the way to your decoys, switch from layout blinds to all whites and get under the decoys better.

  • Scouting is key. Try to hunt a field that birds were in the night before.

  • Flags and wind socks add movement to a decoy spread. Some hunters also use black and white balloons attached to poles to create the same effect.
