Snow Goose hunt
« on: December 21, 2016, 11:06:34 AM »
This opportunity will be for a morning hunt till 11 with myself on a private field for snow geese in Skagit county. You'll need a snow goose harvest card. I want to provide this opportunity to a youth hunter and their parent/guardian. I will cover the cost for the field and provide all the decoys. I cant be too certain on the date yet until I know when the geese are in the field so, it may mean a couple days notice or a day notice. To enter please have your youth hunter write a short paragraph about what they enjoy about the outdoors and include a picture of them out hunting.  I WILL PICK THE WINNER CHRISTMAS DAY

Awesome!  :tup: :tup: :tup:

Congrats to the young man and some fine shooting by the looks of it. And thank you Duckgtr for offering this up. Perfect example for why I should check in here at HW more often as I would have entered my daughter. Those of you who offer up these youth hunts are keeping our sport alive. Thanks again.
