We ran the last sea duck hunt of the season out on the Atlantic Ocean with Scooters and Long Tails being primary targets.  We had to fight heavy ice flows and ice jambs to get the boats into the water so meeting prior to daylight was out of the question.  Our planned meet time was 6:15 with an estimated departure of 7:00am.  Until both boats were finally put into the water over rocks and ice we were ready to go.  We had some 2 to 3 foot chop with ice in the inlet but had no issue navigating our way offshore.  Our 23' Parker with twin Mercury Optimax's ran perfect even in the 30 degree water.  Our set up was in about 40 feet of water with the Banks 2 man revolution being anchored on 150 feet of rope.    We set 75 decoys and loaded our hunters.  The shooting was quick and on top of them with surf scooters, common scooters and black scooters being primary targets.  We were also buzzed by blue bills, long tails, common merganser and we saw a flock of snow geese in the Ocean.  Our hunters managed a  2 limit shoot very quickly.

Ok guys, here is what we have going on for spring snow geese.  Very large flocks of birds requiring large amounts of decoys.  We are offering spring snow goose hunt discounts for groups of 5 or more.  Standard rate applies for less than 5.  Our birds we are chasing now are in the marsh and will be moving north to some fields we lease as the birds start to move back north.  We are in our conservation season and we are using electronic calls and vortex machines.

Well this hunted started with a 37" snowfall that pushed birds south.  We had not seen any birds in the area for 3 days when the winds picked up to 40 mph and blew snow everywhere.  It blew off the tops of some hills and all the snow piled up deep in the hollows.  I noticed some birds using one of the hill tops the day before season close.  I grabbed the ziess bino's and counted just shy of 400 birds on that field give or take 50.....

I called a few of the guys that work for me and told them to gather their stuff together and white snow suits, oh yea we need a snowmobile...  one of our guys got his sleds out filled gas tanks capped off the oil reservoirs and loaded them up in the trailer.  We got 3 jet sleds out and I told the boys we are going old school on these geese.  I pulled out 30 year old shell decoys and outlaw silohouettes.  Saturday morning found us hooking up the jet sleds to the snowmobile and loading up about 120 decoys.  Everything is set up and ready to hunt by 7am there was not a bird flying until 9:00am.  All the sudden we could hear the tell tale HONK and then all hell broke loose.  The first couple flocks we scratched out a few birds then a flock of 100 or so came in and ended the hunt, 9 birds in 20 minutes.  What a great hunt and a fantastic way to close out the season on a snowmobile hunt.
