Dirty Bird Outfitters Arkansas Spring Snow Goose Hunts
Our Arkansas spring snow goose hunts are based in East Central Arkansas within driving distance of Stuttgart incase you want to check out the areas rich waterfowl hunting history. A very large portion of the Mid-Continental snow goose population comes through Arkansas which presents great opportunities for fantastic hunting. Arkansas snow goose hunting is some of our favorite, from taking it to them in the many winter wheat fields or chasing them in the rice fields its is something everyone needs to experience. On January 30th we pull the plugs out of the guns, slap on the extensions, and charge up the electronic callers because we start guiding in Arkansas Feb 1st From Feb 1st till Feb 5th Arkansas runs a five day conservation season (Which we do special pricing on a full five day hunt during these dates so ask us about them) and then a two day split on Feb 6th and 7th for a youth weekend. We start back at in on the 8th of February and will hunt in Arkansas until late February depending on weather and migration patterns.
We will be running large spreads of Avian X fullbody decoys accompanied with white rock windsocks. You will also be hunting over multiple spinners along with plenty of extra flyers to give plenty of motion. We will be pumping out sound with 2-4 of our 4 speaker e-callers. You will be surrounded by all this top quality equipment while you are hiding in your lay out blind, we run two different sizes to make sure we have the right one to fit you.
On a typical morning your snow goose guide will meet you and guide you to the field we are set up on which will probably be a rice or winter wheat field. Once you get in the blinds you will find yourself overlooking a large spread of decoys. We stay mobile which enables us to make sure we are hunting fields that have recently had birds in them. The first flights of the mornings can be some of the best action so we will make sure we are ready to go by shooting time. We conduct our hunts during the morning flight only so that we can move to fresh feed fields daily. Scouting is the key to our success and it is best to have all guides scouting during the evening. You will enjoy your first Arkansas spring snow goose hunt.
