Spring Snow Goose Hunting in New York & Pennsylvania

Spring Snow Goose Hunting in New York & Pennsylvania 2017-06-28T11:28:28+00:00

Eastern View Outfitters provides Greater Spring Snow Goose Hunts in New York and Pennsylvania. Our hunts are conducted in Traditional Staging Habitat and Resting areas within the Atlantic Flyway.  These areas are the traditional regions used by migrating Snow Geese year after year. We hunt Snow Goose on thousands of acres of private farmland in Upstate New York and Pennsylvania.  Our Atlantic Flyway, Greater Snow Goose hunts are strictly fair-chase, no feeders, or farm raised birds…

There is nothing more magical than watching a flock of thousands of migrating  Greater Snow Geese circle down into the decoys.  This is a spring spectacle which is unrivaled!  Our Guides and Experienced Retrievers will be sure to make sure you have an enjoyable stress-free Greater Snow Goose hunt! Our knowledgeable guides will be happy to answer questions and put your group in the best possible position to be successful. Snow geese are the most wary and difficult bird in North America to decoy consistently. Decoy spreads numbering in the thousands are the common place to entice and lure huge migrating flocks within shotgun range. A lot of snow goose success has to do with the weather–unfortunately this is one factor we can’t control. But we will do everything in our power to make sure you are on birds during your trip with Eastern View Outfitters.

 

Went on my first snow goose hunt and it was a memorable one. Bryce Collins of Eastern View Outfitters was OUSTANDING. He ran his guide service the right way. Safety was his number one priority of his guests in the blind. The property was right off Lake Champlain and waterfowl were EVERYWHERE!!! We saw thousands of ducks, Canadas, and Snows during our two day hunt. Hudson, Bryce’s Black Lab was exceptional, ranging out over 250 yards on two blind retrieves each day.
Blinds were very comfortable and Bryce made sure you were taken care of. A big thank you to Bryce, Hudson, and all the other guys we hunted with this weekend. We will be back next year!

Captain Bryce and his partner served as excellent guides for our father-son Thanksgiving weekend snow goose hunt. He was on time, professional and courteous. The decoy rig was large and of high quality. Bryce calls very well and knows when to call/flag and when to sit still. He has leased many productive acres and takes time to scout. We had very good shooting in a safe environment.

Guided Snow Goose Hunt

Whether we are hunting in New York or Pennsylvania, our guests can expect the hunt preparation to start in the pre-dawn hours; where they will meet their guide, sign waivers, settle up balances and go over what they can expect for the day. Our guides will then accompany you in the field before first light and help you lure these wary Greater Snow Geese into shotgun range using a top of the line Electronic Calling system. We have hidden speakers in and amongst the decoys throughout to broadcast sounds like thousands of hungry, feeding snow geese. When the geese come into range our guides will call the shot, instructing all the hunters to take aim and harvest birds! Some days hunters that are physically able will be asked to help adjust or straighten up the decoy spread and brush a dusting of snow off from the decoys. This is a team effort and all part of the hunt. 

No other time of the year is quite like the action that can be seen on a Spring Snow Goose Hunt! It is a migration based hunt and we will often have thousands of birds migrating through the area each day of the snow goose hunt. Hunts are conducted out of either white suits and custom blinds built for comfort on the coldest of days.  If the weather’s a little warmer we will use white suits (provided) to hide among the thousands of decoys we set up to lure the snow geese into range. We will break for lunch, if you’re on one of our New York Snow Goose hunts we can have a hot meal delivered for $10/ meal from the Homestead Restaurant in Plattsburgh, NY (meals provided only on NY Hunts).  After the hunt we will clean birds at the trucks and the Guide will take all carcasses to dispose of properly. 

After the Hunt

Birds are the responsibility of the hunting party. Birds will be processed back at the trucks by guests or your Guide who will process for a fee of $2/bird if you prefer.  Guides will breast birds out and leave a wing attached for traveling back across state lines. All carcasses will be taken by the guide to ensure they are disposed of properly. Additionally, most of you will be most likely staying at the Comfort Inn and we do not want any bird cleaning bird cleaning done there.
