    Great little series. I had no idea you could hunt them this "late". Now I'm going to try and figure out a way to get up there from Kansas.

    I noticed that you were using a lot of the SCORE shotgun shells. These shells are made in Carberry Manitoba. I can remember buying a couple of boxes of their original lead loads, and then I contacted them to see if they would produce any steel loads. I talked to Ismail, who at the time was the owner/production manager, and within a year , the first cases of STEEL shells were in production. I bought a few different sizes and types this last fall and was very happy with them. The best thing was the cost. I ended up picking up a couple cases of 2.75" #2 for $89.00 CDN a case, which works out to about $65 USD a case. Cheddite hulls, but I don't know which shotcup they are using. Pattern well. Shot is decent. An absolute bargain up here. Even buying in the retail stores, they are at least 1/3 to 1/2 cheaper than comparable brands like Winchester, Federal, or Kent.

    I digress.

    How did you like the SCORE shells, and what sizes were you using? It looks like the birds were hanging a little higher on the this day.

    There are snows still in our area right now, but not many. Most migrated north last week.

    Kept up with the series and all the WR videos. Great videos and really liked keeping up with them. Then knowing how day by day went was a cool new thought. I enjoyed them thanks for posting keep em up

    3" BB Score does the trick. We like them a lot! And as they say, when in Rome.

    The birds were definitely acting more typical of adult spring snow geese on the last day. No wind and very cool, you'd expect that. Still had enough come down and shot plenty.

    Things change every day - that's snow goose hunting for ya! And what we were trying to share with this series.

    Thanks for the positive comments and feedback guys. We do put a lot of effort into producing stuff like this so we like to hear that others are enjoying it!

    And it wasn't just shooting. I have always liked the behind the scenes stuff and the how to parts. Ever think about doing something where you talk about conditions and how you set your callers and spread, etc?
