    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:

    Those snows and blues walking around in the dark so close to you guys, was something I've never seen before. Very cool. Looking forward to the next segment.

    Thanks for sharing. Pretty neat footage of you and the geese walking along side by side in the field.

    It was very strange. They certainly got in some sort of walk towards the light trance!

    After a successful first day we continue to look for our grove on day 2. With another massive feed of snows to hunt the stage was set again.

    An overnight and morning rain turned this day into more of an adventure than we bargained for. But a bang up hunt and a unique trophy to bring home gets us set into the MEAT of this spring snow goose hunting adventure!


    Enjoy hunt 2: Spring In Sask

    *Note on the muddy road portion of this video as I know there might be guys that will question it: The fields were fine and the farmers were more than willing to let us out there. The road we ended up on this morning turned greasy on top quickly (we had literally been on it 6hrs prior). What you see in the video is us unhooking the trailer and spinning it around to get out of there, instead of bombing down the rest of the road.

    Mud happens in the spring - and we were able to avoid such conditions the rest of the trip.

    Nothing like a little gumbo. Nice to see the birds work in nice and tight after 8 months of pressure. Well Done. You should be drinking pilsner though. Only available in SK.

    I hunted that crud all last fall, and I wasn't prepared to do it again this spring. I wimped out. Shame on me.
