Snow Goose Hunting Story

By · Comments (0)

Snow Goose Hunting Story from Maryland, Delaware

Sea ducks; Diver ducks; Puddle ducks; Canada goose hunts; Spring snow goose hunting; ducks hunting;  Spring turkey hunting in Maryland and Delaware

The field we are hunting tomorrow was loaded yesterday with 30,000 snows and myself nor the clients got much sleep in the lodge. We were up at 2:30am. We couldn’t sleep much last night. It felt just like Christmas morning and the gift was a chance to crush the heck out of the snow geese and pile em up. We got to the field and pulled out to the exact spot they lifted off the evening before. An hour later the crew had 1,000 well placed decoys and we jumped in our white suits to just look like part of the flock of snow geese. We were ready to pile em up.
As the sun started coming up a lonely single snow flew over the rig not more than 20 yards high. I called the shot and the guns roared.

The snow crashed to the ground hard. I love hearing that THUD when they hit.
Getting back in position we could here the snows coming. Finally in the glow of sunrise we could see a cloud moving in the east. But the other clouds weren’t moving so what’s going on. That’s really strange. Then it hit me. It was about 5,000 snows hell bent for our field to feed. So any snows it looked like a huge cloud in the horizon.
They had been on the roost sleeping for about 14 hours and they were hungry.
Now the birds are about 1/2 mile out and closing fast. The excitement and anticipation is so great that you can feel your heart pounding in your chest. No wonder we love doing shooting snows so much. This experience is almost as exciting and thrilling as the hottest female on the planet begging for you to make love to her. Actually the older you get, the more thrilling hunting is. Oh well.

Snow Goose Hunting Delaware

Now the birds, all 5,000, are only 200 yards out and locked up heading straight for our decoy rig. They sail in the last 200 yards at 25 yards high and it’s about to get ugly real soon. Because you can’t hear yourself think for all the noise that 50,000 geese are making honking, I have to scream the command to open up on these white bastards. “Kill em, Kill em Kill em” I scream as all 10 hunters pop up from their position on the ground. The guns roar as birds start to drop. Looks like It’s raining birds everywhere. Bang-Thud multiple times as the guns roar and birds hit the deck. Thud Thud Thud. After the smoke clears we start picking up birds. Some stone dead and some crippled but that’s where the retriever gets to have her fun. After the hunters and the dog get done retrieving the downed birds we do a head count. 16 dead birds. A great start for sure and some good shooting for sure. Hey guys I holler. Their coming at us again. Get in position. It’s about to get ugly again. And so goes the entire morning. Time and time again. An endless train of snow geese just not knowing when yo quit. What a hunt. After several boxes of shells and lots of banging we take inventory of the results of the hunt. 105 birds in three hours and done. We may have soar shoulders and a lot of birds to clean but we’ll be glad to do it all over again tomorrow. And rest assured. We will wake up early again just like the anxiousness of Christmas morning and be ready to get it and growl. Red on white. It’s quite a sight. It’s not the wild meat but the heart beat. That’s why we do it.

Delaware Snow goose hunting

Centrally located between the huge tidal marshes of southern New Jersey and endless cornfields of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Delaware winters close to 1.000,000 snow geese annually.Delaware is home to two major snow geese roosts- the 25,000 acre Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge and the 9,900 acre Prime Hook Nationals Wildlife refuge. (Sussex County) Combined these refuges host over 600,000 snow geese each fall. Both refuges provide large fresh water and marshes for snow geese.

Maryland Snow Goose Hunting

With over 2,200 square miles of grain farms and numerous bays and roost ponds, Maryland’s Eastern shore now winters over 200,000 snow geese. With all this seemingly endless waterfowl habitat, the snow goose population has exploded here in the last ten years.  In  addition,being only 12 miles away from the Delaware bay and Bombay Hook refuge, Maryland is also a huge feeding destination for birds from Delaware.

Be believed as the first human domesticated fowl, goose comes from the wild swan goose or grey goose. Wild goose is the predecessor of Chinese goose, while grey goose is the origin of European national goose.Canada Goose Kensington Parka black Goose is a kind of poultry, it is bigger than ducks, has long neck, wide flat beak, with short tail, white or gray body and with protruding flesh forehead. The male goose’s bump is bigger, has long neck, with big webbed feet and is good at swimming. Cereals, vegetables, fish, shrimps and some other stuff are foods of goose, moreover, the meat and eggs of goose are able to be eaten.

According to its features, goose can be induced to be duck course with Aves and wild goose outline. Duck species have complex kinds, we often say some animals, such as geese, swans, ducks, mandarin ducks and other animals are all duck species. Some of these animals are trained to become domesticated poultries by humans, such as mallard ducks are domesticated into ducks, wild geese are domesticated into geese, gray geese are domesticated into the European goose and perched warts nose ducks are domesticated into Muscovy duck.

These members are with different shapes and habits. Some of them would like to eat plants; however, some are fond of eating fish. Some of them would be good diver, but it is only impossible for some to float on the water. In addition, some can be defined to one of the strongest flying birds, while others are not good at flying. There are several swans, such as warts nose goose and big swans are the largest size of swimming birds, it is also one of the largest flying birds. Mute Swan is also the most elegant bird, which is commonly seen in the park in Europe, but it is not seen in China commonly.

Family geese have been started to be domesticated by human beings around three or maybe four thousand years ago and wild goose is their forefather. Geese always have big heads, wide and strong bodies, full chests, have cold resistance, with gregarious natures and disease resistances. Geese are not only with quick growing speed, but own a relatively long life span if contrasting to other poultry, four to fifteen kilogram would be their rough weight. Goose habitats in the vicinity of ponds and other waters, it is good at swimming. The incubation period of goose will be about one month and raising activities are taken all over the world. There are some core sorts of goose, such as lion goose, Taegu goose and other geese.

What we can learn from modern pharmacology study is that a high concentration of immunoglobulin is being existed in the blood of goose, it has over forty percent controlling rate on the aspect of Ehrlich Ascots carcinoma.
