Snow Goose Hunting in New York–Fall & Spring Hunts (October-April)

Eastern View Outfitters provides Greater Snow Goose Hunts in New York. We offer both Fall and Spring Hunts from October to April. Our hunts are conducted in Traditional Staging Habitat and Resting areas within the Atlantic Flyway.  These areas are the traditional regions used by migrating Snow Geese year after year. We hunt Snow Goose on thousands of acres of private farmland in Upstate New York. Our Atlantic Flyway, Greater Snow Goose hunts are strictly fair-chase, no feeders, or farm raised birds…

There is nothing more magical than watching a flock of thousands of migrating  Greater Snow Geese circle down into the decoys.  This is a spring spectacle which is unrivaled!  Our Guides and Experienced Retrievers will be sure to make sure you have an enjoyable stress-free Greater Snow Goose hunt! Our knowledgeable guides will be happy to answer questions and put your group in the best possible position to be successful. Snow geese are the most wary and difficult bird in North America to decoy consistently. Decoy spreads numbering in the thousands are the common place to entice and lure huge migrating flocks within shotgun range. A lot of snow goose success has to do with the weather–unfortunately this is one factor we can’t control. Rest assured we will do everything in our power to make sure you are on birds during your trip with Eastern View Outfitters.

Guided Snow Goose Hunting in NY (October-April)

Our guests can expect the hunt preparation to start in the pre-dawn hours; where they will meet their guide, sign waivers, settle up balances and go over what they can expect for the day. Our guides will then accompany you in the field before first light and help you lure these wary Greater Snow Geese into shotgun range using a top of the line decoys. This is hunting and we highly recommend a 2 day hunting trip when hunting any waterfowl especially Greater Snow geese. This allows you have the best possible chances at harvesting waterfowl and experiencing a huge shoot. 

Fall Greater Snow Goose Hunts:

This is an on the X style hunt and we will be setting decoys together with clients as a team on a scouted agricultural field that the geese have been feeding in days prior to your arrival. Hunting snow geese is a team effort and this requires everyone to pitch in during the Fall hunts to set up and pick up decoys for the hunt. We will very often have some helpers who will be there to lend a hand with the workload of setting sometimes in excess of 1000 decoys… extra hands are often needed! Hunts are 1/2 day hunts and we will typically be out of the field at 12 noon. Guides will then scout and let the birds rest and feed un-pressured in the afternoons. We can often take both Canada geese, Snow geese & Ducks in the field during the same hunt. When booking be sure to ask about the best times to come for Fall Canada/Snow/Duck combo hunts. 

Spring Greater Snow Goose Hunts:

No other time of the year is quite like the action that can be seen on a Spring Snow Goose Hunt! Greater Snow geese have wintered in the typical Delaware/Maryland area and have now started forging North towards their breeding grounds in Nunavut, Canada. We will essentially set a trap and intercept large groups of Migrating waterfowl on a daily basis. It is a migration based hunt and we will often have thousands of birds migrating through the area each day of the snow goose hunt. With a migration style hunt the success of the hunters is largely in the hands of  “Mother Nature, with one day drastically different from the next. This is why we hunt a Full day…. with the middle of the day often times being the most productive times of the day on the classic days when geese are migrating northward. With all this being said please book 2-3 days and give yourself the best chances for success. You have already invested the time and money to come hunt what is an extra day or two… This is not me trying to sell you an extra day… This is me trying to make sure you are happy. This hunt differs from the Fall hunts in that all the decoys will be set up for you ahead of time. The group will be required to provide some help to the Guide with maintenance of the spread during the hunt. Like dusting some snow off the decoys or straightening up a couple leaning decoys etc. before and during the hunt if you are physically able. Hunts are conducted out of either white suits laying out amongst the decoys on padded backrests or from custom A-frame style blinds built for comfort on the coldest of days. These A-frames are a sit and stand to shoot style wing shooting opportunity and perfect for the older gentlemen and bigger guys. No offense guys. I am in my 30’s and enjoy sitting in the A-frames!! Please book well in advance and request the A-frame when booking the hunt. The white suit style hunts are very different and we will hide among the 4-5 thousand decoys we set up to lure the snow geese into range. We will break for lunch quickly and all Spring Snow Goose hunts have a hot meals delivered for $10/meal from the Homestead Restaurant in Plattsburgh, NY if you desire. We will put an order into the restaurant and you will pay the delivery person upon arrival. After the hunt we will clean birds at the trucks and the Guide will take all carcasses to dispose of properly.

Guided Pheasant hunts at Eastern View Preserve (September-April)

This allows us to give our upland hunters a variety of challenging terrain to hunt upland birds in. We are only offering fully Guided hunts for ringneck pheasants at this time. Ringneck pheasants are some of the most beautiful of all game birds, a rewarding bird to pursue! We will be tailoring the hunts to parties of 10 or less persons. This gives each person plenty of ample shot opportunities in the group and safe hunting conditions. All non-member hunts will have a licensed NYS Guide on hand and a Gundog provided if your party desires and doesn’t have one of their own. The Gundogs will be provided for locating and retrieving the game birds your party harvests. We utilize both pointing dogs and flushing dogs depending on the cover we will be hunting. We also offer a Preserve Membership so please take a look at this value package. All memberships are the only self guided packages we offer. We only offer a limited number of Preserve memberships annually so plan ahead. Both Member and non-member hunts are certainly welcome to bring their own dogs on the hunt. Whether you own seasoned gun dogs or are introducing that young pup to the art of game bird hunting, we encourage you to come hunt our preserve. If your party has their own Gundog–the Guide will gladly sideline his dog/s to allow your dog/s exclusive hunting privileges. All bird cleaning is included in the non-member hunt price and the member hunts if they are fully guided. Gratuity is not included in the price on the fully guided hunts and is greatly appreciated by the Guide. 

We are a Class A preserve and No hunting license or special permits are required to hunt Ringneck Pheasants at our preserve. 

We only allow non-lead ammunition such as steel shot, tungsten or bismuth while hunting on the Preserve. This is an ECO-Friendly Preserve and there is no exceptions. We will have 12 gauge Rio Blue-steel shotshell ammunition available or you can plan ahead and bring your own favorite cartridge.

All Preserve Membership holder hunts will be self guided unless you added the Fully Guided hunt. The Guide will will show you the hunt area where your party of up to 4 persons will hunt. Each non-member hunt will be accompanied by a Guide/s and a Gundog/s. Your Guide/s will go over basic safety rules and hunting strategy for the hunt. Your party will then follow your Guide and Gundog into prime Pheasant habitat and the hunt ensues! Watch the dog flawlessly work over the cover and habitat in search of the fast flying Ringneck Pheasants. Your Guide will know when the dog is on point or “birdy” and will instruct the group to pay special attention. The bird will flush and your group will take aim and harvest your game birds. If your party has their own hunting dogs the Guide will not hunt his dog/s and be there to help direct you to the areas you should work the cover over thoroughly. We do not shoot birds on the ground and all guests will abide by the “Horizon Rule” or the hunt will be terminated. This means if you can’t see blue sky below the bird please don’t shoot. Our hunting dogs are like our children. Hunts will have both hens and rooster pheasants and both may be harvested during the hunt. Both before and after the hunt member & nonmembers are required to check in and check out. After the hunt your Guide will take pictures and clean all your birds. You can add more birds or a Fully guided hunt with our dogs to the hunt if desired and scheduled 24 hours prior to the hunt. All Pheasant hunts can be combined with Fishing charter and Waterfowl hunting packages. When you schedule as combo trips you save your group money instead of booking separately.
