As the spring snow goose hunt nears it is important to remember some of the patterns of the snow goose. Snow geese typically fly in few large flocks at very high altitudes - especially on clear days. Snow geese migrate extremely large distances - thus their hunting seasons are both later in the fall and earlier in the spring. The spring snow goose hunts through Nebraska and the Dakotas take place in Late Feb - Early April.
If we look at this migration map it tells alot about the patterns of the snow goose. The red represents the summer breeding grounds, the grey the typical migration patterns and the blue the winter resting areas. Snow geese feed almost entirely on plants and grasses - so as the snow melts and exposes young early plants the main migrations begin in the spring.
