Hunting Snow Geese! 63 Bird Day in Kansas, South Dakota Hunts starting!

March 18, 2014

3/18/14  Our Kansas hunts ended with a bang!  We got a 63 bird day that included too many volley’s to count, most birds taken on a volley was 7, I think, and we had many volley’s with just 2-4birds dropped, what I’m getting at is with 4 guns going the amount of shooting going on was pretty amazing!  To the credit of the boys shooting we were dealing with 40-50mph winds that basically made the first shot great but then birds would hook the wind and be moving very fast.  Nebraska hunts were shorter this season than ever before, we are making efforts to start our South Dakota Hunts now and will continue into April 10th or so.  If you want to hunt some crazy white birds then give us a shout, we will put you on em and have some good laughs.  Call Jason or Judi at 307-267-2559

Weather Stalls Migration, 1.5million snows!

March 4, 2014

3/4/14  We are hunting the snow line and the snow goose roost that we are hunting now holds over 1/2million snow geese according to local biologists, another 750,000+ in the area, thats 1.5million snows in our hunt area.  The massive roost can be heard in the mornings from over 5 miles away, quite impressive.  Hunting has been up and down which pretty much sums up snow goose hunting as a whole.  Our guides are enjoying some morning shoots that have guys ripping through shot shells as fast as they can reload, other shoots are leaving us feeling schooled by a bird with a brain the size of a walnut.  Never the less we are absolutely having a fantastic spring snow goose season, the spread we are running is complete with 1200 sillo decoys, 120 full bodies, 6 vortex machines and about 50 flying flapper decoys, take all that and add in two sound systems and 8 speakers and you have a recipe for success.
Availability: Nebraska Hunts March 11,12,13, 17,18, 20-23, South Dakota March 26-31, April 1-4, 7-14
Give Jason or Judi a call 307-267-2559 book your trip today.

 

 

Snow Goose Migration Alert!

February 18, 2014

2/18/14  We are set up in Kansas now and killing Snow Geese over decoys regularly,  the temps are in the 70′s today and the ice on the lakes is vanishing fast!  NEW snow geese arriving daily, hunting will only get better from here on out, we are seeing between 50,000 and 100,000 Snow Geese each day as it fluctuates with new birds arriving and other birds migrating north.  These are good numbers but not huge numbers like at Mound City, HOWEVER the fact is we are the only guys hunting this area and I have yet to even see another spread of decoys in the area…this light pressure translates to geese that are much more willing to decoy down to great shotgun range…I’m talking 10yards on some groups.  We had a single hunter that had a volley of shots over the fullbody spread as over 1000 snow geese came barreling down and started landing in the decoys, he shot 4 birds with three shots and all four birds fell with 15yards of our layout blinds.  For those interested in our spreads we typically hunt over 1000-1500sillosock, 3-6vortex machines, 120 Fully Flocked Snow Goose Fullbodies, and 50+Flappers.

Available Dates For Snow Goose Hunts:  Kansas Feb. 21,23-27, Nebraska March 3-6, 11-13, 16-18, 20-23 South Dakota March -5-April 4.  Call today 307-267-2559

Kansas Hunters Bag First Ever Snow Geese in Blizzard

February 4, 2014

2/4/14 The Kansas Snow Goose Hunts have been going good considering the conditions…Today 40mph+winds, blowing and drifting snow, but a great day for hunting as we had a father son pair in the field and they shot their first ever snow geese! We had a good bit of shooting today and the snow geese are here and I predict that the conditions will only get better as the weather now begins to give way and warmer conditions will soon bring even more birds up from the south…some perspective clients can’t believe we are shooting snow geese in Kansas this early but fact is that we have had good numbers of birds to hunt for weeks and we will continue to hunt these very low pressure areas as long as they hold birds and we are being successful. The snows decoyed especially well today, finished a lot of groups of over 100birds to 20yards, great range for spring snows, proving that yes you can finish snows over decoys.  Call us now and get your spring hunting fired up!  Catch Jason out of the fields on the phone in the evenings or talk to Judi during the day while we are hunting. 307-267-2559

Limits on Partridge & Grouse

Thanks Jason and Jesse for the hard work you put in on our Sage Grouse, Partridge Hunt this week.  Allowing me to bring my own dog and slip your dogs in when mine were tired worked out perfect.  I can now see that my dogs have a lot to learn, but thats got me real excited to get to work on them.  Ending our hunt with limits on everything the last two days was awesome! Again thanks for a great hunt and tell Andrea the cook we really enjoyed the food.

Cheers, Jack & Shawn, South Dakota

Client Enjoys Wild Bird Hunt

Dear Jason,

I just wanted to say thanks for such a great hunt last week, the number of truly Wild Birds was a real pleasant surprise!  Having never hunted Huns before I was amazed at how fast they flew and how often your dogs were able to track down and point the same covey several times.   Shooting lots of birds was fun, but the best was watching the dogs and how they worked birds from long distances.  I have been on a number of guided hunts and this was the best, thanks again for all your hard work.  My son David and I really enjoyed the Hungarian Partridge we ate last night for dinner!

Client Appreciates Personal Instruction

Jason, I just wanted to thank you again for the GREAT trip you gave Sue and I this week. The personal instruction you gave Sue made the trip very special for her. Having never fly fished before, you had her feeling extremely confident and landing big fish within a half hour.

I have been trout fishing for over 40 years and been to many locations to fish for trout including Alaska and have never seen a more consistent fishery for numbers and the size of the large trout that you put us on during this float down the North Platte at Grey Reef”.

Thank You

how to dress for bird huntingWe suggest you pack for cool to colder temperatures. Click on our weather icon for latest conditions and up to date forecast. Include in your shooting bag a variety of Gore-Tex and fleece outerwear in order to help regulate your body temperature during a Wyoming hunting trip.

While fall is typically beautiful, Wyoming weather can change quickly. Your hunt bag should also include waterproof/lightweight hunting footwear, a game vest, upland gloves, headwear, hearing protection, shooting glasses, choke tubes, oil and solvents, shell pouch and knife. While hunter orange outerwear is not required by law for Wyoming hunts, we at Grey Reef Anglers require that you wear a blaze orange hat or vest.

Guns and Ammo

guns_ammo

Selecting the right shotgun is a personal choice for Wyoming hunts. We’ve seen hunters use virtually every make and model available, with prices ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. So, as long as your firearm offers you between-the-hand balance and the features you prefer in the field, bring it along. Gauges including 12, 16 and 20 are typically preferred for Pheasant, Grouse and Partridge. We don’t usually recommend 28 gauges, however, some clients have proven to be very efficient with them.
