So many of you are avid waterfowl hunters, I have a question. I realize snow goose migration is very unpredictable, but generally, with the current population of snow geese that we can see on the live feed right now, how long can they be expected to stick around. I guess my main question is, will they be in the area on Tuesday March 4th? Any predictions?

The length of time the Snow geese stick around is contingent on the weather and the food available where they are.

Weather seems to be the biggest factor with the snows Northward migration, cold and snow cover keep them at MC a bit longer. My prediction is that you will see plenty of snows still around on March 4th.
What Guide are you hunting with?

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

Saw video in Williamsport yesterday of a lot birds flying. So it appears some have already started to move North. Monday appears to be a good day to be out looking at weather. Some sun but 10-15mph winds. Going to be cold though so bundle up! Tuesday and Wednesday both look like 10-15mph days with partly cloudy skies. More sun and wind the better for me.

Funny you should ask....we don't know. We booked with James Creek Outfitters but when our guide called, he was from Black River Valley Outfitters. I'm thinking they work together. Our slot was the last one. Everything else was taken. I believe the outfitters are helping each other out. Makes no difference to me. Never hunted snow geese before. I'll be taking a bunch of camera equipment to make a video.
