Nebraska, Wyoming, Canada Goose & Duck Hunts
Duck & Goose hunting on the North Platte River in Nebraska and Wyoming is well known among waterfowl hunters but what a lot of hunter’s don’t know is the fantastic Duck & Goose Hunting to be had on the North Platte River on the Wyoming side of the North Platte. Why is Wyoming Goose and Duck hunting in our area so good? A simple open water system of waterfowl refuges including the North Platte River Refuge, and light waterfowl hunting pressure are main reasons our bird hunting is so good. Combine those refuge systems with the fact that the majority of our ducks and geese that arrive here in the fall stay the entire winter and do not migrate any further south. This adds up to make for some awesome guided waterfowl hunting trips.
Grey Reef Wingshooting guides will put out and pick up decoys wherever the birds are to make sure your in the best location for success. Occasionally we will hunt out of layout blinds if necessary to put you on the X, but the majority of our goose & duck hunts are done out of our heated wood pit blinds. The reason we hunt these pit blinds is for several reasons. First these pit blinds are put in the ground and taken out of the ground each season, these pits are put in fields that produce birds year in and year out and the pit blinds are like a giant wooden box that is completely enclosed so your dry and warm with a nice wood floor to walk on. Second we are very careful not to hunt a particular pit too often so the birds are not pit wary. Third we feel that a warm pit blind hunt is a superior hunt as opposed to layout blinds, why is this? First, Pit blinds are the ultimate in concealment no worries about movement because your below ground level, your warm, comfortable and able to move around and watch the ducks and geese through the pit lids. This allows you the client to watch the birds work the decoys and allows you to be totally ready to shoot in a 360degree area. These pit blinds are large and have ample room for 6 guys, dogs, heaters and all your gear.
Best time of year for ducks and geese here in Wyoming & Nebraska varies with weather but each year we are into the birds heavy by Nov. 25th and our liberal season goes until the second week in February for dark geese and late January for ducks. Get booked early as prime weekend dates go fast.
