    Do certain crops tend to make the snow goose hunting better?? Rice, corn, beans?

    Would you leave the water or drain it?

    For ducks, I’d think rice is best??

    Or is location still the most important?

    For Snows being on the X and corn are the things that work best for us anyway. Most of it's location, location , location !!

    Corn, rolled rice field and winter wheat. Find the fields they’re using and if the weather isn’t extreme(very cold) then they can still be a bear to kill. They’re easy to decoy, even with smaller spreads when they’re feeding in daylight hours and it’s 20’s for daytime highs. Just like the best days to bow hunt or duck hunt, geese panic when the weather is getting harsh.

    echo 10 gauge its more location and where they want to be Seen them in beans, corn, wheat, cover crop They eat what they want at that moment When we hunted in AR it seemed they were more in bean fields eating green grass sprouts, but up in N MO they seem to stay in the corn more times than not

    Corn fields are where we hunt them, we haven’t had the need to hunt them on any other fields.
