Our Missouri Spring Snow Goose Hunts
Missouri Spring Snows

Missouri is the host to the spring snow goose capital of the world, Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge AKA : Squaw Creek. When the snow geese start to make their spring run north to their breeding grounds it is a sight to behold. Massive clouds of snow geese can be seen from Louisiana to North Dakota and what is right in the middle of this trek. North West Missouri and Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge.
Boasting 3,400 acres of wetlands for the snow geese to stage on it is a collection point for the largest population of snow geese that migrate through the central United States and the Mississippi Flyway. At times in the peak of the migration you can find anywhere between 500,000 snow geese to upwards of 2 million and thats just in the squaw creek immediate area. That being said the entire state is a meca for the snow geese as they make their way through the US to the great white north. It serves as the middle ground or half way point to tundra. With vast expanses of crop lands and hilltops through out the central and western parts of Missouri with several areas of roosting waterways for the snow geese to rest in, the state of Missouri has the perfect mix of food and resting for the snow geese on the reverse migration.
With Missouri being such a great welcoming mat for the massive wads of snow geese it also makes for a great place to come and hunt the snow geese in the spring. When people think of spring snow goose hunts or spring snow goose hunting in general the state of Missouri has to be the most saught after areas for waterfowl hunters to gravitate to and rightly so. When the conservation order season was first established there was a big push to hunt South Western Iowa and North Western Missouri. Since the inception of the spring snow gooose season North West Missouri has established it's self as the meca and snow goose hunting capital of the world. But, with more snow geese and more area to hunt also comes more outfitters and more freelancers. North West Missouri is also becoming the hardest place to hunt snow geese in the spring. With more and more outfitters poping up every year there is fierce competition for hunting ground and pressure around the Squaw Creek NWR people are starting to seperate themselves from the meca that is Mound City. But, for those who have been around for some time know that there are plenty of places still in Missouri that are phenominal collection points as well as hunting locations. With a lot less pressure and friendlier land owners we can still hunt the state of Missouri and not have to deal with the crowds that flock to Mound City. There are alot of locations left in the state that are off the beaten path where the spring snow goose hunting is very productive and the locals welcome you with open arms.
If you are thinking of taking a snow goose hunting trip this upcoming spring make sure you ask qualifying questions of the guide that you are interested in hiring. There are a lot of them out there that are completely new to the industry and have only been hunting in the spring for a very short time and they also use Squaw Creek as their marketing point.
Contact us and talk to us about your concerns or questions about the spring snow goose hunting and we will give honest and educated answers. We have been hunting snow geese in the spring almost since the beginning and have experienced the good, bad, and ugly of it all. We have hunted snow geese in Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota so we have seen the changes in the migration patterns over the past decade as well as know of the places to go when the bad weather hits. We will not sugar coat anything and will be up front and honest about the hunting and what is going on in and out of the field.
