What to Expect on a Hunt with Us

We meet at 5:30 am as of 12-1-09 at the Exxon in Moses Lake across from the Motel 6, Super 8 and Interstate motel, and about 100 yards north of I-90 at the Broadway exit (exit 176). If you are staying at the Best Western the Exxon is right in front of the motel. At the gas station you will be able to get coffee, donuts, pop, water, snacks. We then drive 15-30 minutes to the field that we will be hunting. At that time we load everything up into the guides truck and drive out to the pits.

We then set out between 30 and 150 decoys. Everyone usually helps set all the decoys out. We are usually ready to go at shooting time and hunt until either our limits have been met, our shooting time is reached. We recommend bringing something to snack on and a drink.

Recipes

Geese are excellent table fair if cooked correctly. There is very little fat on a goose, which gives them a great taste however they can dry out very easily. Go to this link to read about recipes that we recommend.
