Spring Snow Goose Hunting in South Dakota & Missouri - Eaglehead Outdoors


Saskatchewan Hunting

Year after year Saskatchewan lives up to its famed nick-name “The Land of the Living Skies.” Saskatchewan whose name is derived from the Saskatchewan River meaning “swift flowing river” consist of vast acres of rolling grain fields and potholes in the South to dense desolate bush country in the North! Where these vast rolling grain field and desolate bush country meet is where Swift River Outfitters calls home. The area that we hunt is home to some of the first grain fields that millions of Ducks, Canada Geese, White-Fronted Geese, Snow Geese and Sandhill Crane stage at as they make their yearly migration south.  With access to a vast area and very liberal limits hunters have the opportunity to endure what we believe to be the best waterfowl hunting in North America.


Saskatchewan being located in a flyway with millions of Snow geese, Canada geese, white-fronted geese, Sandhill Crane and numerous species of ducks our hunters have a unique opportunity to harvest multiple species of waterfowl on their hunt with us. Starting in Early September and running through late October day in and day out we strive to provide a world class waterfowl hunting opportunity for each and every one of you.

A typical day with Swift River Outfitters consists of either a Snow Goose or Dark Goose hunt in the morning and a Crane hunt or Duck hunt in the afternoon. This is all dependent on what we have for birds in the area at that given time of the year and what we feel our best option is to put you on a successful hunt.  Each day we spend morning and evening tearing up the gravel roads to find freshly scouted fields to assure you a truly memorable hunt. With our superior knowledge of the area, the highest quality of equipment and personal drive, we do everything in our power to show you the amazing spectacle of waterfowl hunting that Saskatchewan has to offer.


  • 8 Canada Geese (3 day possession)
  • 8 Ducks (3 day possession)
  • 20 Snow geese (no possession)

*Shooting hours are one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset!



Being situated at the very northern edge where the prairie ends and bush begins our hunters get one last opportunity for a hunt of a life time before the birds migrate north one last time to their breeding grounds for the summer.  This is a very critical time for the snow geese as they need to feed harder and longer than any other time throughout the year. They need to have adequate energy to sustain the last leg of their migration as they head to their breeding grounds where they will have nothing but small amounts of grass and bugs to keep them alive until they reach the golden wheat fields of Saskatchewan the following fall! Spring hunting in Saskatchewan provides an opportunity to hunt significantly less pressured birds and birds that tend to hit the same fields more consistently making for an amazing wing shooting adventure.

A typical hunt in the spring takes place in a freshly scouted field that birds are comfortable and have been patterning to making for great results day in and day out. Being there is a limit in Saskatchewan during the spring season, if a limit is reached in the morning we will take the rest of the day to scout and secure the next day’s hunting location. If we do not reach a limit or close to a limit in the morning we will reset in another feed field for the evening hunt in hopes of adding a few more birds to the mornings pile.
