At Goose Down Outfitters you will be hunting in some of the most unbelievable fields in Western Nebraska. In the last ten years the goose hunting in the Nebraska panhandle has absolutely exploded. The number of birds wintering in the area is just simply amazing! The greater Canada geese are the predominant birds, but we do also winter a number of the lessers as well as thousands of mallards. We cover a 20 mile stretch along the North Platte River. The river is the main roosting area for waterfowl during the cold winter months. With several different ground level pits to choose from we will put you on the birds. Our pits are located in food sources as well as resting fields that have proven to be outstanding locations.
We will provide top of the line decoys, blinds, dogs, calling and breakfast cooked in the pit. Our guides are incredible on their short reed calls. All of our blinds are ground level, heated 4 to 8 man pit blinds that provide the best concealment possible. Our decoy spreads consist of Big Foot full bodies, GHG full bodies, and the GHG oversized shells, many of which are fully flocked. We use the best equipment available to increase your chances for a successful hunt. We take pride in getting the birds up close and personal.
Our day will begin by meeting you at your hotel or The Lodge approximately 1 hour before legal shooting time depending on where we are going to hunt for the day. We ask that you (the hunters) help set out the decoys in the morning before the hunt starts. If you wish to not help set out decoys let us know in advance.
The geese never see the exact same spread twice!
The decoys can be set up in 30 minutes or less with 4 guys depending on how many decoys we choose to put out on that particular day. We generally hunt with 10 to 25 dozen decoys.
