South Dakota: Snow Goose Hunting Hot Spot?

South Dakota is known as a pheasant destination in fall, but exploding snow geese numbers have also made it a fantastic spring destination for waterfowl hunters.

Last spring, Huntley Ritter, host of The Outfitters journeyed to Aberdeen, S.D., where he joined outfitter Jeff Wasley of Four Flyways Outfitters on a spring hunt for snows. The sheer number of birds was unbelievable and the team managed to run through a mountain of shotshells as they participated in this special hunt designed to curb out-of-control goose populations, which are ruining fragile Arctic habitat to the north when they migrate.

Don't miss a second of the action; be sure to tune in Thursday, July 25, at 8:30 p.m. (EST) on The Sportsman Channel, and be sure to enter the Ford Insider Adventure Giveaway for a chance to win the ultimate outdoor adventure and a brand new Ford F-150 with EcoBoost.
