I have been told those birds use a field between 2-3 days then roll to the next one... If you have a flexible schedule its best to find a guide that will call you as soon as the birds hit his fields and then you can setup on them the next day... That way you arent wasting your time and money waiting for something that left the building 2 days ago...

I had this setup 2 years ago with a guy but he never had the birds... I wouldn't mind trying it again for sure... Looks like a blast if you have the birds...

We're not using a guide so my problem is not having permission to hunt the field they sometimes feed in. They are flip flopping for the right field to the wrong field, trouble is, you don't know where they will be tomorrow or the nedt day.
You are right about many of the guides, they will ,when they have geese, go down a list of clients that may have the time available to hunt in the next day or two...when the birds are there. Saves a lot of time calling folks to cancel hunts,cause they are not holding birds. Guess it would be great if you are retired or loaded and can just pick up and go hunting!

Yea, unfortunately it seems that the only way to have good snow goose hunting is to use guides. I, just like most of you, don't have the money to go on guided hunts all the time. And I don't have the time these days. But sometimes you can get lucky. Just have to do a lot of scouting and see if they are ever willing to hit and of the public grounds.
