This spread was the largest one they run and was by far the biggest spread I have ever seen. Jason stated that there was roughly 8,500 decoys and that it takes a group of guys a full day to set it up. They had a mixture of full bodies, floaters, and Snows Unlimited sock decoys mixed together.
The morning hunt started a little slow. We saw a few high flying migrating flocks early, but it took a little while before we got the first flock to work into the spread. As they got into range Jason called the shot like a pro and we dropped three beautiful Snow geese. We were on the board! As the day went on, the hunting picked up. We experienced a lot of high flying birds headed north, with the smaller flocks, along with some singles and doubles that would work into the spread and offer up some nice decoying shots. As the day was about to come to a close we had one last flock that wanted in!
After all the shots were fired we dropped 2 more Snows and 2 Blues, bringing a nice end to our day.
We took a few pictures to remember the hunt by and headed back to the lodge to have some dinner and share a few more stories of hunts past. That night we were the only ones in the lodge. After dinner we watched a little TV before heading to bed, to get some much needed rest before day two.
