Northern Skies Outfitters Testimonials
Read what others have had to say about their guided hunt experiences!
Thanks for the unforgettable hunt! I cannot believe how close the birds came to the blinds. We actually had adult birds landing in the spread! I should have brought more 2 and 3 shot loads instead of BB and BBB. This was by far the best guided hunt I have experienced. It is obvious how much work you do to put your clients on birds. Not many guides willingly listen to ideas or suggestions from their clients. You taught me a lot about the art of getting the cautious snow goose to commit and finish into the spread. You are a very patient and professional guide. It.s a good feeling when I can compare stories with friends about their hunt and know I have shot more birds. I like having bragging rights. I have a feeling your hunts will fill up fast for next spring. Sign me up! I can’t wait!
I just want to thank you for the excellent time we had spring goose hunting with you in South Dakota. I was amazed at you decoy spread and the calling technique you use. We heard from locals the night before the hunt that we were with the right guide and you proved them right. When we went into town for lunch two of us had 27 geese on the ground, another hunter we talked with only had three on the ground. At that point we knew we had made a great choice. Thanks to you for all your diligent work in your preparation of the hunting sight. We will see you next year, with more hunters with us.
Thought I would drop you a thank you note on one of the best hunts I have been on for a long time. I always wanted to do the spring goose hunt but never knew how to get started. You definitely showed me the way. You supplied everything needed to complete a great hunt, the blinds, the land, the calls, the decoys and even the birds. I have never shot so many geese in one day my entire life, and I have hunted a lot of waterfowl over the years. Your ability and attitude to supply a great hunt is number one in my book. Keep up the great work.
I hunted with Mat and his crew from Northern Skies Outfitters for several days on two different trips to South Dakota for the spring goose hunt of ’09. I am a 30 year veteran to waterfowl hunting; I have never had snow geese in the decoys on such a consistent basis. On two different occasions during these hunts we had birds in the decoys, and Mat called the shot, my partner and I didn’t shoot (until late) after a falling of geese and the pellets settled. Mat said “why didn’t you guys shoot?” as we replied “they were to close!” These birds were 5 feet above our blinds with birds on the ground in the feeding pocket. Mat knows how to decoy birds. It was a great experience, in which I will be going back! I would highly recommend Mat and his crew at Northern Skies Outfitters to you all.
Good luck hunting,
My first four curled mallard and it had jewelry.
Had a three day hunt with you guys, Awesome operation and very professional!! Had a blast the weather didn’t cooperate but when does it! Thanks again it was a blast would recommend anybody to you.
I want to say Thank You to you and your guides(Davies, Nick and Pete) for an outstanding hunt. You are running a top notch operation. I’ve never seen so many snow geese, you had us right in the middle of the flights day after day and your guides certainly know how to bring them down into shooting range. We enjoyed hunting with your team and especially like watching the dogs work. Nick’s dog Jake was amazing.
We really had a great time, learned a lot, shared some stories, good laughs and shot a bunch of snow geese. What a great trip. We will definitely be back next season.
Hey matt this is Carey Wright,
I hunted this past weekend with you all in Beau Harvey’s group. I just wanted to send you an e-mail telling you what a great time we all had. Even though the weather and hunting was anything but good, it was another trip with Northern Skies Outfitters that we will never forget. Your guides and their personalities/attitudes toward hunting are one of a kind. After last year we knew that you and mike were a blast to hunt with. And this year we saw just how unbelievably cool Davie and Samson were as well. We had a blast hunting with you all and hanging out saturday night.
The stories from this weekend will not be forgotten anytime soon and will the subject of many laughs for years to come. Another thing that will not be forgotten is how you all went above and beyond to make sure we experienced a quality hunt. Most outfitters wouldn’t have cared how our hunt turned out after collecting our money. We are hunters, and we know that the weather is what it is and is completely out of your hands. The fact that you and your guides volunteered to guide us on Tuesday for free to make sure we experienced a great hunt was unbelievable and will not be forgotten. You are all great guys, and you run a first-class operation. I can tell you that as long as I continue snow goose hunting I will be going with Northern Skies Outfitters. Again, thank you for everything. Good Hunting!
