He has also tied up the waterholes that the roost on to assure that they will not be disturbed before the hunt. He is very thorough. Dave hunts over large spreads of full body canada goose decoys and uses Final approach ground blinds to maintain his mobility throughout the season. As Dave says ”These local birds smarten up quick and you have to stay one step ahead of them”.
Sandhill Crane Hunts
The Sandhill Crane season starts in mid September and this is one of Dave’s favorite hunts. He says that these massive birds are like B57’s coming into your decoys. That’s right Dave actually decoys Sandhill Cranes on this hunt. Prior to the regular Waterfowl opener, Dave is stationed in the 3 bird per day zone just west of highway 281. He hunts out of the town of Rugby. Believe me that this is an exceptional hunt for the waterfowler who wants to try something new. Dave describes the hunt as more like big game hunting than waterfowl hunting.
Fall Waterfowl Hunting
During the regular waterfowl hunting season Dave is stationed out of the town of Langdon. He has access to tens of thousands of exclusively leased fields to hunt. Dave has been hunting this area for many years and he will customize any hunt you desire. If you would like to field hunt Snow Geese in the morning and Canadas in the afternoon… no problem. Dave has more decoys than any person I have ever met. How about an afternoon field mallard shoot? Dave has over 250 field mallard decoys to give you a once in a lifetime mallard hunt. Another exceptional waterfowl hunt is Dave’s custom Swan hunts. If you are interested in bringing down a huge Tundra Swan be sure to apply by July for your swan tag and Dave will take you on a guided decoy swan hunt. If you think you’ve seen everything you need to watch as a 20+ lb Swan comes sailing into your decoys… Wow! Bottom line Dave Beam has made a lifestyle of customizing any type of waterfowl hunt for any size group of hunters. This is Dave’s bread and butter and with the way the regulations are today it is well worth the extra money to have Beams On The Prairie set up the your custom hunt for next fall.
