Rates/What To Bring/About The Hunt

   

     Arkansas Spring Snow Goose Hunts: $200 per day 

          All hunts are half day morning hunts moving to new feed fields each day if possible.

          Our guides spend the rest of the afternoon scouting and planning for the next days location.

         

          Nebraska and South Dakota Spring Snow Goose Hunts: $150 per day 

          These are typically all day hunts where we take a midday break and hunt the afternoon as well. We run large migrator type spreads of 2000 - 4000 decoys in Nebraska and South Dakota. 


Nebraska Late Season Canada Goose Hunts: $150 per day

Typically either a morning or afternoon hunt, some hunts may be all day depending on the situation. Hunts are usually out of layout blinds in cornfields. 



A deposit of 50% down is required to book a hunting party, we have a two hunter minimum policy to book.

We recommend that you book a 2-3 day hunt  to ensure you get the best possible hunting experience. Nomad Outfitters provides all land/leases/fields, all decoys and electronics, backboards or layout blinds, professional guides, and hunters equipment transported to and from the field. (Our price does not include lodging, depending on where we are hunting we may have lodging available at an additional cost.) During the spring migration we will be hunting in key staging areas and migration corridors starting in the Arkansas Delta and then following the migration up into the grain and water rich farmlands of Nebraska and South Dakota. Each day of hunting can vary greatly with weather and migration patterns. Bring cold weather waterproof clothes and also light weight warm weather gear as the temperatures can fluctuate greatly in the Midwest during the spring. It may be 70 degrees one day and 30 degrees the next, so be prepared for any type of weather situation. 

Rain Gear is highly recommended as well as rubber boots or even waders to keep you dry if it is wet. Most of the time we hunt on padded backrests wearing whites to blend in with the decoy spread, many times the fields we are hunting do not have enough cover to brush and hide layout blinds.

Please try to have all members of your party bring their own whites to wear in the field.

A white hat or beanie as well as a white face mask is very important to bring. Being totally concealed is a huge part of having success hunting snow geese. All types of waterfowl camouflage are acceptable to wear, but please no dark timber style camo, hats, or face masks. We may be laying in whites or using layout blinds depending on the situation, so be prepared for either. We will have white painter suits available but we highly recommend you bring your own whites as they will hold up longer in the field. Hearing protection is also highly recommended, between the electronic calls and big volleys of shots it can be quite loud in the spread. 

As far as how much ammo to bring I tell people to bring 2-3 boxes with them out into the field, but have extra back at the vehicles if needed. I recommend bringing BB size 3 inch steel shot. Before you come for your hunt make sure to remove the plug from your shotgun and put in an extended range choke that will shoot steel. Aftermarket full steel shot chokes are very popular for snow goose hunting. The evening before your first days hunt we will determine a meeting location for the morning and go over a safety checklist before heading to the field. Bring any food, snacks, and beverages you might want for in the field. Please NO ALCOHOL. Make sure to bring coolers, trash bags, and or Ziploc bags to take home your harvested birds. Our guides do clean the birds after each hunt, but help is expected to bag, count, clip wings etc. Your guide is a professional guide who is earning his living trying to provide you with a quality experience. A gratuity of 15-20% per day is greatly appreciated and part of his daily wage.  Be sure your entire hunting party purchases the correct conservation snow goose license for the state we will be hunting in at that time. We will give you more details about the licencing process in the weeks leading up to your hunt. During an average day of hunting we typically harvest 20-30 birds. Big shoots do happen when we go over 100 birds but so do bad days or even zero bird days. Every day in  the spread is different than the last, no wind days can be extremely tough but the next day could be the complete opposite and a great shoot. Some types of weather help decoy birds and other weather types do not, this is hunting! This is why we recommend booking at least two days of hunting, to give you the best opportunity to have a successful experience. All DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Clients canceling 30 days before their hunt date may apply deposit to future date. We will very rarely cancel a hunt due to inclement weather or another reason, but if we do it is for your best interest. We will re-schedule your hunt for a date later that season or the following year.

We look forward to hunting with you!
