Default Snow goose hunt last Saturday....

We hunted near Port Lavaca. Got 61, lots of fun. Wish I knew how to post Shotkam footage, it was epic.

Nice! I was wondering where all the sky carp got off to.

I saw some groups filtering back in today, but not many. We still don’t have any open water.

I watched the video of that hunt, and it is worth your time if you like total smack downs. I'll say this though, those snow geese act completely differently from the ones down here. Texas snows have PhD's in hunter avoidance.

I was in stuttgart the same day as that hunt. The geese here aren't any smarter. They just have way more in Arkansas

Not when you turn them into tamales and sausage.

Yup....we used to have them made into sausage and buckstix way back when. That's about the only way I like them. Had some snowgoose jerky a buddy made and it was doable.

Believe the outfitter on that is Goose Chase. Look up Goochie TV on YouTube and you will find the video. They have won the macks snow goose contest 2 yrs in a row now

For those who inquired, my share of the harvest is all going into smoked sausage.

Nice shoot ultra! Heck of a lot of fun when you get on them like that.

We had a hunt set up with Jake earlier in February but the snow and ice cancelled it for us

Jake was looking forward to that hunt in the snow. I didn't say anything, but I had serous doubts that was gonna happen. Man that's one beautiful buck in your avatar.

Their stuff is always great, but I wish they'd find somewhere besides that mudhole to drop stuff off.
