This year’s Hunt Giveaway winner, Dallas, and his friend Dustin left the warmth of Florida to spend a few freezing days with us on the North Platte River. This year’s hunt was hosted by Goosebusters LLC in Alliance, Nebraska. Owner and head guide, Jim Childers, and guide TJ, pulled out all the stops to make sure this hunt was one to remember and that Dallas and Dustin got the full experience of a hunt of a lifetime.
With temperatures dropping near zero, snow on the ground, and the river starting to freeze up, day one put us in a cornfield. The guys got fitted in their new GW gear, opting for the added warmth of the Shield Insulated Waders
to combat the arctic temps, and we headed out to set a goose spread. As the name suggests, the guys ‘busted’ big Canada Geese like seasoned pros. A few hours after setting out decoys, we were picking them back up (with a pile of geese and a ton of laughs to boot). A quick bite to eat in town and it was up to the hills to chase some coyotes to fill the evening hours.
