About this time last year, I warned about the total disaster of a hatch in the Canadian arctic. It all turned about to be true. The juvenile snow goose hatch was the absolute worst I have ever seen.

What a difference a year makes! This year, there is good news coming fr...

Let me start with a review of the 2018-19 season. Simply put, it was as tough as it gets. The snow goose hatch was the absolute worst I have ever seen in my 50 years goose hunting.

I surveyed a group of 2,500 birds and saw not one single juvenile bir...

I have been asking myself that question for over 50 years.

Contrary to popular belief, there has never been a time when snow geese were stupid. I started hunting them in 1969 and was bewildered by how so many of them would just fly over and never look at decoys....

It has been almost three months since we returned from goose hunting in Arkansas. It was, to say the least, a goose hunting adventure that was unequaled in my now 65 years.

I knew I was in for a wild ride when on opening day, November 16th, we had geese landing in...
