New York Snow Goose Hunting

Greater Snow Goose Hunts

You haven't waterfowl hunted until you have seen snows migrate in from a mile high to land in the decoys in flocks of hundreds at a time or seen thousands of snow geese come in to the decoys at day break and descend on your decoy spread from all 360 degrees of the compass, not knowing what is going to land first.

Every year thousands, upon thousands, of migratory snow geese invade the areas surrounding the Finger Lakes of Upstate New York. The birds surround the majestic, Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge, as a staging area during their reverse migration North up the Atlantic coast to the Bylot Islands of Northern Canada.

Captain Jason "Big Jay" Barnes has been chasing these elusive birds for over 20 years and can tell you first hand that "the war is never won with these birds. You win battles!"

Here are some of the details included in our hunts:
  • All day afield
  • Hot lunch at noon
  • Bathroom facilities at the edge of the field
  • Hunt over 2500 decoys
  • Professional dog work
  • Parties up to 10 people
  • Limit of 25 geese per person per day

All you simply need is your gun, licenses, and shells. Captain Jay and staff will take care of the rest.

The vision of thousands of Snow geese landing all at once is so mind boggling that you just can't absorb it all. What a heart-pounding rush. It’s not like a mallard hunt or Canada goose hunt, that is for sure. Our guided spring snow goose hunts in NY are November and March. We hunt staged birds and migrating birds that travel south through New York state down the Atlantic flyway.

If you want to have a unique and heart pumping hunting adventure come see us. You won't forget it. We are booking up now for next year so give us a call. Don't miss out next season.
