The Biggest Myth in Snow Goose Hunting

I have heard this countless times as soon as I tell someone I am a snow goose hunter. You don’t eat those things do you??? I have no idea how the notion that snow and blue geese are unfit for consumption started. They feed in the same fields as specks yet those geese are revered as table fare. You do need to prepare them correctly; here is how you do it.



1) Let it bleed-Waterfowl meat in general is very dark and blood heavy. The way to draw the blood out is simple. Soak it in water in a refrigerated environment for a minimum of 48 hours, more time is even better. Make sure you drain the water off the meat and refill the bowl every 24 hours for best results. I know a lot of people use milk but water is just as effective and comes out of your faucet.



2) Cut it thin and tenderize it-You can cook snows any way you can cook a duck. But the breasts are thicker and tougher than a mallard for example. Cut the breast in half lengthwise and use either a mallet or a heavy knife blade to tenderize the meat.



3) Try this-Creative cooking is fun and delicious. Instead of the same old way you cook birds, try this original recipe. You will need slow cooker such as a crock pot, a small round pan, and a rectangular glass baking dish pan to pull this off.



Barbeque Snow Goose Enchiladas

Ingredients

4-6 goose breasts, meat filleted off the bone (you will have 8 to 12 halves)

1 10 oz jar green enchilada sauce

1 24 oz bag shredded Mexican style cheese

20 corn tortillas

6 oz canola oil

1 18 oz bottle of your favorite barbeque sauce

1 8 oz can of beef broth

3 bay leaves



Instructions for cooking



This recipe requires a slow cooker, a small omelet pan, a pair of tongs, and a 13.5” x 8.5” x 2” baking dish. You will need some time for this recipe as the goose will need to cook in a crock pot for 8 hours with the bay leaves and beef broth first. Once that is done, remove the meat from the pot and pull it apart and drain the juice from the pot. Place the meat back in the pot and stir in the barbeque sauce. The next step is to pour the oil into the omelet pan. I prefer this pan due to the size and shape of corn tortillas. Heat the oil on medium heat for a few minutes until oil is hot. Use tongs to place tortilla in oil, cook for a few seconds on each side and place on paper towel covered plate to drain. Repeat procedure until you have all 20 tortillas cooked this way. Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Take a tortilla and place it in the dish near the edge. Take a small amount of the duck and put it on top of the tortilla. Then add a small amount of cheese on top of the meat. Roll everything up tightly forming an enchilada. Repeat this process until you have two rows of enchiladas in the dish. My personal dish has room for ten in a row. Take the remaining sauce and pour it over the enchiladas. Then scatter the remaining meat over that. Top it all off with a heavy layer of cheese. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Place dish in oven for 20 minutes until cheese is thoroughly melted. Plate and add Spanish rice and refried beans or eat them by themselves for a delicious and different treat. Serves four to six people.



Don’t tell new people trying them what meat is in the dish. The look on their face is priceless!

GHG Full-Bodied Snow and Blue Goose Decoys

Snow goose hunting has evolved over the last 30 years. Much of that evolution has been fueled by the Snow Goose Conservation Order instituted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the late 1990’s. This order has given waterfowlers a season beyond normal duck and goose hunting frameworks, extending hunting into the spring months. The lure of no plugs, no limits, and electronic callers has added many to the ranks of snow goose chasers. Where decades before on the coastal prairies of Texas and Louisiana snow decoys were simple at best and primitive at worst, now the full-bodied decoy dominates the flyways. Greenhead Gear was first to realize the potential of such a decoy. Our snow and blue full-bodies were put to the test in 2005 and hit the market a year later. Since then, others have joined the fray but GHG has committed to keeping its snow offering on top. Today, the GHG snow and blue full-bodies are a one-piece design, gone are the removable heads prone to breakage. Add to that an improved motion cone system, better paint schemes, and incredible feather detail and the GHG snow decoy finishes geese better than any other. Greenhead Gear, First in Finishing.



Key Features

-Snow and blue versions in feeding and active postures

-Motion stakes and ring bases included

-One-piece design eliminates head breakage

-Over-sized motion cone for easy decoy spread deployment

-Available in active and feeder six-packs and harvester pack dozens

5 Reasons Snow Goose Hunters are a Little Crazy

Snow goose hunting popularity has been on the rise the past 15 years. The spring conservation season with no limits, no plug restrictions, and electronic calling devices has attracted many waterfowl hunters looking to extend their seasons. But there have always been snow hunters and these hardcore individual's border on insane in their relentless pursuit of the white goose. Here are some hardships that most hunters don’t care to endure that the veteran snow hunter laughs at.



1) Decoys-Gone are the days of a few hundred flat rags thrown around attracting snow geese into gun range. Full bodied decoys are the ticket and a ton of them. Spreads of over 1,000 decoys are not uncommon. Putting out that many decoys is a tremendous amount of work, not to mention the expense of amassing that many.



2) Unpredictability-Snow geese are notoriously unpredictable. You can locate a bunch of ducks hitting a spot and you are almost guaranteed to have a good hunt if you hide well. Snow geese are not ducks. Every snow hunter has uttered the words “they were all here yesterday” while watching those same geese land in another field a half a mile away. Frustrating doesn’t begin to describe the feeling of going through all of the motions and coming up empty.



3) Time-Hunting light geese takes a lot of time to do it right. Hours of scouting while burning countless gallons of fuel are not exceptions, that is the rule. Then once you find the birds all the gear must be transported there and put out. Serious snow hunters don’t know the meaning of the phrase “chilling out.”



4) Sleep-Sleep is a luxury a snow junkie cannot afford. Up at 2 A.M. after getting back to camp at midnight is pretty standard. These are not “morning” people or “night” people; they are “zombies.”



5) Mud-February and March are damp months historically so wet dirt is unavoidable if you spend a lot of time chasing snows. Everything you own will be covered in it. And if you have never experienced “gumbo” mud, head south and have some fun!



With all of that being said there is nothing in waterfowling that compares to a good snow hunt. Thousands of screaming geese swirling over your head is a sight that cannot be duplicated. It’s easy to see how the addiction starts; just not easy to understand how it never ends. Hunt on snow killers, hunt on!

ASD Boater’s Dog Parka

Why should your dog wear one? Because of body heat. Your dog begins to lose crucial body heat sooner than you might think. Water temperatures below 55°, sub-40° air temps and 20+ mph winds are prime conditions for deadly canine hypothermia to occur. A Boater’s Dog Parka traps your dog’s body heat helping his coat dry faster while reducing energy zapping shivering. It also provides the floatation and protection that your dog needs to perform its important job for you. Convenient handles located on the back of the parka allow you to pick up your dog with ease.

GHG Pro-Grade Puddler Pack II

Late season decoy diversity often is the difference between hunting success and failure. Ducks have seen the same old spreads all season, the tired mallard-heavy set ups that set off alarms to flights from a mile away. Now is the time to change it up. A great way to do it is by adding several new species. The GHG Pro-Grade Puddler Pack II was constructed for that, adding different species in pairs. Included are a hen and drake of our
ultra-realistic Pro-Grade series in pintail, wigeon, and green-winged teal. Add in some diversity and finish birds in close. GHG, First in Finishing.


Pack Includes:
1 Drake and 1 Hen PG Pintail
1 Drake and 1 Hen PG Wigeon
1 Drake and 1 Hen PG Green-Winged Teal

GHG Pro-Grade Wigeon Decoys

American wigeon are often considered a bird of the Pacific and Central flyways. But the truth is they are widespread and hunters across the nation are liable to encounter them at any time. Thus, wigeon decoys are a great addition to any set. GHG Pro-Grade Wigeon are anatomically and visually realistic and add a new dimension with varying body postures. Wigeon are often called “robbers” as they will steal food brought to the surface by other species, especially coots. Want you spread to be first in finishing? Add some GHG Pro-Grade Wigeons and experience the results.



Available in 6-packs of the following mix:

1 high head drake
• 1 surface feeder drake
• 2 rester drakes
• 1 rester hen
• 1 surface feeder hen
