Start your goose hunting season out right with Rise-N-Grind

You’ve waited all year for this. The ache in your heart and twitching of your trigger finger, you need to satisfy the itch! It’s September and early goose season in Minnesota is in full swing. The crisp morning air, and the harvesting crops means, it's your time. The huge canadas are migrating south and our guides know the key to success. These geese will be bowed up, while you are hunkered down in the layout, and finally you hear the guide say, Kill’em!!!  It’s the much awaited moment to knock the dust off that barrel and drop some birds.

Location, Location, Location....Hunt the infamous Big Stone Refuge in Western Minnesota.

We goose hunt near the Big Stone National Wildlife Refuge in Ortonville, MN. The refuge was established in 1975 and has over 11,000 acres. The prime objective was to provide optimum nesting cover for ground-nesting waterfowl. 

The majority of our early season goose hunts will take place over the fields. Our hide is composed of Tanglefree Flight Series layout blinds. These blinds are durable and easy to hide. The best part is they are very comfortable, top notch product. If crops are still in the fields, there is a chance we will utilize standing corn or panel blinds. The geese will not be disappointed in out spread with life like full body Dakota Decoys and realistic Tanglefree silhouettes. We have all the equipment to make your hunt as successful and memorable as possible.
