Fowled Reality - Shooting Snow geese and Specklebellies in Southern Illinois

With the duck and dark goose migration at a standstill, Fowled Reality met up with some friends in the far reaches of southern Illinois to do some snow goose hunting and specklebelly hunting. Having success on snow geese without an e-caller is challenging, but with the right setup it can be done! The crew put down 12 snow geese and 12 speckebellies over the course of the weekend. Stay tuned to for the full webisode this Spring.
