  • Get your ammunition, your license and outdoors

    Last week I forgot to mention who we booked our Snow Goose hunt with. We booked with Premier Flight Guide Service and they can be reached at www.goosegrinders.com.
    Please understand, our lack of success was in no way the fault of Premier Flight or our guides. It was just some very crappy luck!

  • More from goose hunt

    Our Arkansas snow goose hunt was too much to be covered in one article. So, this week I’ll finish up on our adventure.
    Now in order to catch up with the story, get a copy of last week’s paper and read it!

  • Geese galore and more

    Snow geese by the thousands… maybe millions… awaited us in Arkansas. So many snow geese that a special “conservation order” season has been set in an attempt to control their numbers.
    No license required, just a number from the state of Arkansas. No plug in your gun to allow only a certain number of shells. Matter of fact, you can use a “tube extension” to allow the use of not three, but up to 10 total shells.
    And the biggest kicker: No limit on the number of birds you can take!

  • Surrounded by decoys, looking for birds

    This is one of those “self-imposed” early deadline articles. Self-imposed because come Sunday evening when I usually turn my article in I’ll be fishing my second day of a three-day snow goose hunt in Arkansas.
    We, Terry Davis, Ryan Mattingly, Billy Thompson, three of Terry’s friends and I booked a hunt with Premier Flight Guide Service. We hunt in Arkansas, close to Newport, surrounded by around 1,500 decoys made up of shells, full body and wind socks.
