We have multiple scouts on the road while we are in the field hunting, ensuring the next hunt is filled with clouds of Canada Geese, Specklebelly geese, snow geese and/or ducks. Or plenty of shot opportunities during a spring snow goose hunt. We assure you our lodge is second to none and we will take care of your every need.
