As the calendar flips to May everyone's attention has turned to turkeys and crappies. Most have not thought about goose hunting in months....but here at White Rock Decoys we are waterfowl hunters to our core. The drive never wavers.

Join us this week as we literally take you along on a final trip north, to the end of the road as they say. A special hunt, a special bird. It's one last chance at snow goose glory. Spring in Saskatchewan. A true nomad adventure!



We'll update this thread with a new video every day this week. You can also follow along on our website (http://whiterockdecoys.com/spring-in-sask.html) or facebook page (www.facebook.com/whiterockdecoys)

When Siri says it's 18hrs to your hunting destination and you know these are the same birds that "handed it" to you just a few short weeks ago, it'll make you second guess why you're even doing it. This is not waterfowl hunting Canada in September....this is snow goose hunting - in May. It's been 8 months of heavy pressure, they've seen it all by now. We've done spring snow goose hunting trips to Saskatchewan before, and we know it's far from a slam dunk. Will it be different this year?

On our first day the anticipation has long been built. Now are they going to play? The field is HOT, but we wake up to calm conditions and birds that never left the section. Not ideal. Lets give it a go and see how this is going to play out!

Enjoy Day 1:

Made it out with my dad Saturday morning and was looking forward to putting him on a bird. We've never had much luck while hunting turkeys together but I was hoping for a change in success. Having not scouted the property the night before we went in early hoping to just find a bird on the roost. Ended up hearing gobblers all over the property when we stepped out of the pickup. Went in on the closest ones, what sounded to be three toms and another two or three down the canyon a couple hundred yards. Got set up about a 100-150 yards away and got a lot of response when I would call but as soon as they pitched down out of the tree they went the opposite direction. We noticed all the noise kept heading away from us so we elected to pick up and try and get in front of them and set up again. We played cat and mouse with these turkeys for over an hour and a half trying to pick the right spot in the timber to come in front of them and each time we chose the wrong spot. We never did spook them but they were constantly on the move while feeding. My dad suggested we split up so I ended up keeping after the birds we've been chasing and he went to a new spot. Finally was able to get within a reasonable distance from two toms and two hens. I didn't have time to set up any decoys so I just laid on my stomach and started calling. Coaxed the hens my way and the toms followed in suit. Put the hammer down on a nice tom at 15 yards. Had my dad just stayed with me he could have easily shot the other tom. He had a 9" beard and 1/2" spurs. All in all it was an awesome hunt and we had beautiful weather, except it was a bit windy. Couldn't beat the scenery also. Guess I'll have to buy another permit. :)

Unplugged guns. Some fun:

Has anyone here tried the new and improved black cloud loads? Different wad, cleaner powder, better water resistance, etc. I'm thinking about buying a case just for the hell of it. They are supposed to pattern 36-41% better and be more consistent.

Any big ones out there ?.

I needed a 3 man steel blind with a dog box and being the cheap Bastaige I am building one.
I bought 3 steel containers from a Olive processor that are made out of 1/4 steel with a 3 inch lip all the way around. Its going in another pasture that gets flooded and the birds pile into it.

3 foot square and 4 feet deep, 600 lbs each. I'm welding a 16 inch foot all the way around it to back fill around it.

I would love to bury this blind flush with ground and have a adjustable sleeve that I can raise and lower with water depth. I haven't quite figured that out yet.
