How You Will Be Hunting Geese In Texas

Geese are hunted in a traditional style field hunt in the mornings on previously scouted peanut, maize and wheat fields. Upon arriving at the hunting location, the guides and hunting party will set out a spread of full body Dakota decoys and silhouettes. We use padded chairs and ghille blankets to keep you hidden. At sunrise be prepared to enjoy a morning full of close range shooting as hundreds of geese hover over the decoys. It’s not uncommon to see Pintails, Mallards and Wigeon mixed with Canadas, Specklebellies and Snow geese. All Texas goose hunts are half-day hunts, ending at noon or when Canada Goose limits are reached. This allows the geese to rest and feed in the afternoon without continuous pressure. Daily Bag Limit: 5 DARK GEESE (including 5 Canadas or 3 Canadas and 2 White Fronted) Migratory Game Bird Regulations (Click Here).

Sandhill Crane Hunts

Northern Skies Outfitters offers Texas Sandhill Crane hunting. The Sandhill Crane averages a wingspan of 4-7 feet and can reach weights up to 18 pounds. Despite their size and crane exterior, the Sandhill offer a wonderful table fare. Sandhill Cranes are notably referred to as the “ribeye in the sky”. Sandhill Crane’s are open for hunting in Texas from December through the end of January. The daily bag limit on Sandhills consist of three birds per person per day in Texas. The birds will be in a good range, but Sandhills are large birds and require a large shot size to ensure success. A morning hunt for Sandhill Cranes lasts from sunrise till noon. Northern Skies Outfitters sandhill crane hunts are simply the “BEST”. Our sandhill crane hunts take place over deception sandhill crane decoys. The realism is second to none and our results on our sandhill crane hunts speak for themselves. While crane hunting our hunters enjoy  layout or comfortable A-frame and get to experience decoying sandhill cranes like no place else. The Texas crane hunts take place over both water and fields depending on what the Sandhill cranes are doing.

Typically, hunters can expect to shoot limits of sandhill cranes on our crane hunts, and quite often, capitalize on some “bonus” geese and ducks during the same hunt!
