South Dakota Conservation Hunt
First and foremost when booking a hunt with Eaglehead Outdoors our goal is to provide you with the best snow goose experience. Once you book, you will hunt with either Nick, Matt, Chip, Adam, Mark or Bob. The typical day consist of meeting about an hour prior to shooting time (which is half hour before sunrise) and hunt until around noon. After the morning hunt we break for lunch for a couple hours. Then we usually meet back at the field for the evening hunt which lasts til half hour after sunset. Over the pass years we have been averaging around 20 to 30 birds per day, with some days close to or above 100 birds. However keep in mind like in all types of hunting there is always a few slow days that don't get above the single digits. That is why we strongly suggest booking for at least three days to give you the best opportunity at the monster shoot. With this said we provide the best snow goose hunting adventure possible and always a memorable experience! -Eaglehead Outdoors
The #1 Rule is Safety: While we are in the decoys, we require all hunters to have their guns on safety until told otherwise. Guns will not be loaded until the guides instruct you to. Also the guide will tell you you’re shooting lanes and that is where you will shoot. We will have birds landing but will not be shooting any on the ground.
