    Saw the first Cackling goose I have ever seen in real life (in a no hunting zone of course) and have quickly become obsessed with the idea of hunting them.

    Are there any recommendations for outfitters? It seems Washington is a good bet but not sure. Thanks

    Both Washington and Oregon winter a lot of cacklers. Here on the east side of Washington we get quit a few, but to be able to target them alone, the west side or Oregon would be your best bet.
    I love shooting those little guys!

    We have an absolute ton here in western oregon. Can't help with the outfitters I'm always been a DIY type hunter. In the sponsors list I believe you can find some though.

    If you want to hunt true West Coast Cacklers give Eric Strand of S2 Outfitters a call, he'll put you on them.

    S2 Outfitters with Eric Strand. He can get you on some skips. Good guy good hunter. He has a wondering eye and drools a little, but still a good guy. Bahahhahahahha!!!!!
