Arkansas County Guide Service Spring Conservation Snow Goose Hunt
Come enjoy the experience of a lifetime as the spring snow goose season starts right here in Stuttgart with Arkansas County Guide Service. While hunting with Arkansas' finest snow goose guides you will get to experience the sky covered with several thousand snow geese funneling down on top of you. This is something that as a waterfowl hunter you have to experience at least once in your lifetime. The spring snow goose migration is much more condensed than the fall migration causing massive amounts of concentrated geese. Its something to look up in the sky and see thousands of snow geese tornadoing down into your spread. The spring conservation snow goose order allows us to hunt the large masses of snow geese using electronic calls, unplugged shot guns, extended shooting hours, and if you're coming from out of state the license is FREE!!! All these factors come together to make a snow goose conservation hunt an experience of a lifetime.
The 2019-2020 spring conservation snow goose season was a great success and we averaged around 37 birds per hunt. Our 2021 Spring Season was great as well, averaging 33 birds. We hunt two different styles of snow goose setups. One snow goose setup is a large permanent decoy spread with anywhere from 1500-1800 skyfly decoys in a major migration area where snow geese funnel through each spring. On the permanent decoy setup, as well as our mobile spread setups, we run multiple speaker electronic callers, rotary machines, and several fliers. The permanent spreads produce very well on sunny days with a south wind once the spring snow goose migration starts in southern Arkansas. The other spread we run often until the spring migration begins, is a mobile spread hunting primarily the x (feed fields) with primarily 1000-1500 decoys.
We have two full time guys who ride all of our property each day to see which fields the snow geese are feeding on. Once the geese leave these feeding fields, they move to a roost pond where they stay overnight and return to feed in morning hours. We watch the snow geese everyday of the season, morning and evening, to find exactly where the birds are now and where they will be the next day. Both styles of hunts are great for our spring conservation snow goose season, but each one has a time and place in the season. With over 40,000 acres of prime snow goose hunting property here in Stuttgart, you're sure to have a blast!
Lodging and What to Expect
We offer lodging for all hunting parties at one of our four lodging locations all within 30 minutes of the hunting areas. At the lodges, guides will settle groups into the lodge to explain the next days hunting scenario, and afterwards you can kick back by the fire for a relaxing evening. Hunters will leave out from the lodge and follow the guides to the area we will hunt the next morning. Transportation in and out of the fields or timber will be provided by atv, utv or boat each day. After everyone is settled in, the guide will proceed to setup electronic calls and give a speech to everyone on gun safety. At legal shooting hours, (1/2 hour before sunrise) the caller will be turned on and the hunt begins. All hunters are responsible for taking their snow geese with them. Tips for guides are not a must but greatly appreciated! During spring conservation snow goose season there is no limit on snow geese so plenty of shells is a must. We recommend at least 2 1/2 to 3 boxes of shells per day hunted. Shot size of bbs or T shot 3" or 3 1/2" 12 gauge. Licenses are free!
