Snow goose hunting success can come from spending time scouting. You have to know where the snow geese are, where they’re feeding, and how they’re getting there. Even with hours of driving and hundreds of miles, all the scouting doesn’t always pay off. Mother nature heavily dictates the rate of the migration and often times snow geese will fly different routes and feed in different fields on a daily basis. The poor weather and unpredictableness of snow geese left us frustrated during most of our hunts during the conservation season in Illinois. Despite our best efforts to find good fields to snow goose hunt in, the geese always seemed to stay a step ahead of us, but we managed to scratch together a few good hunts.
