Must-Have Snow Goose Gear

posted on February 20, 2016

Avian-X Snow and Blue Goose Decoys
Avian-X produces some of the most realistic looking and highest quality decoys on the market. Now the company offers full-body Adult and Juvenile, Snow and Blue Goose decoys with durable, one-piece construction, Bird Vision UV reflective coatings and sturdy 24-inch motion stakes. Ten-pack contains feeders and actives. MSRP: $249.99-$269.99 per 10.

Mossberg 930 Snow Goose
When you decide to sell your deer gear and hunt snow geese for the rest of your life, it’ll be time to get a designated shotgun built for the task. The Mossberg 930 Snow Goose model is a fitting choice. This menacing 12-gauge semi-auto is covered in Kryptek Yeti camo and fitted with an extended magazine tube below its 28-inch barrel, allowing you to shoulder a dozen 3-inch rounds to thin the flocks of grain grabbers. MSRP: $949.

Hard Core Snow Goose Rag Lounge
The Snow Goose Rag Lounge from Hard Core pulls double duty as a layout rig and rag/sock decoy bag with ample room for loads of decoys and shoulder straps to tote it into the field. All-white design blends in with a large spread of decoys and puts you in the heart of the action as circling groups descend upon your waiting barrage. MSRP: $119.99.

Federal Premium Black Cloud Snow Goose
The folks at Federal Premium created a real snowplow with the Black Cloud FS Steel Snow Goose shotshells. With an increased muzzle velocity of a blistering 1635 fps, the already devastating FlightStopper Steel pellets’ cutting edge slices through high-flying birds. Patterns are deadly even at extended ranges due to the FlightControl wad. Available in 11/8-ounce payloads of BB and No. 2 shot. MSRP: $21.99 per box of 25.

Waterfowl Junkie Original Bird Hitch
When limits allow you to stack up the birds in piles your dog can’t see over, it’s time to start thinking about a better way to clean ’em. The Original Bird Hitch mounts to your receiver hitch and allows you to breast a bird, leaving wings attached for identification, in mere seconds. It is the most efficient method for cleaning birds that we have ever seen. MSRP: $129.99.

SnoMachine Electronic Snow Goose Call
Take full advantage of the lax regulations with the SnoMachine electronic caller from Performance Calls. This wireless device comes with two remotes and uses a 300-watt amplifier to blast recordings from the included MP3 player through two speakers, creating feeding-frenzy noise that’s too good to resist. No speaker wire needed, this system sets up with standard extension cords. MSRP: $225.
