The Texas Panhandle offers goose hunting opportunity for upwards of 700,000 wintering geese. The goose population in the Texas Panhandle consists mostly of lesser Canada or short grass prairie geese ranging in size from 4 - 6 pounds. The region also boasts many great basin or greater Canada geese ranging in size from 9 - 13 pounds.
Panhandle's Best, Inc. offers goose hunts over mounted goose decoys as well as traditional silhouette decoys. Our typical decoy spread for goose hunting consists of 60 - 70 dozen Real Geese Pro Series II silhouette goose decoys.
While goose hunting our primary method of concealment is to dig in and hide amongst the decoy spread. All hunters are provided with padded reclining head rests and camouflage covering material to blend in with the surroundings.
During our regular goose season the majority of geese harvested are lesser Canada geese in addition to some greater Canada geese in the later part of the season. Many of the areas that we hunt also have snow geese intermixed with the Canada geese and we always target the snows when the opportunity arises. Hunters can typically expect to shoot limits of Canada geese as well as a few snow geese per person.
During our Extended Light Goose Season, with electronic calls, the majority of geese harvested are Snow Geese in addition to quite a few Blues and Ross Geese. The possibilities are endless with no limit and unplugged shotgun laws.
