Canada Goose Hunting in Illinois

November 25, 2018- Illinois Goose Hunting Report- Canada goose season is underway here in West-Central Illinois and we’ve had a great season so far. With some major cold fronts headed our way we expect to see another push of geese and overall waterfowl numbers to increase as we enter into December!

Canada goose hunting along the Mississippi and Illinois river flyways can be some of the most exciting and action packed goose hunting available! We offer 5 star goose hunting and outfitting opportunities along these historic migratory flyways. If the geese aren’t flying well on your hunt, then you can go straight into the upland fields and hunt pheasants and quail, at no extra charge!

Canada Goose Outfitter

Our goose hunts are on 300 acres of flooded corn, bean, and millet fields. Pits are heated and in the middle of our flooded fields. The habitat has been managed for waterfowl for over 20 years. Our professional guides will transport you straight to the pit for each hunt. They will also be doing all the calling and even fix you a hot breakfast right in the blind!

Every fall and winter, Canada geese fly south to winter. Along the way, geese will utilize the Mississippi and Illinois river flyways to feed on aquatic vegetation and leftover grain from agriculture fields to aid their long journey southward. One will often see an influx of geese right before and the days following major cold fronts. When open water begins to freeze, geese will be pushed further southward in search of food.
