Personal Hunts

No. When you book a hunt, that field is all yours for the amount of time you reserved it for. You can invite other members to hunt with you OR hunt all by yourself.

Yes. Full-Season memberships come with one free guest pass that can be used to take a non-member out hunting on one of our properties. If you have already used that free membership, then non-members can join the hunt for a $50 fee.

Yes but action is required first. Any person that wishes to be on a KWTH property MUST be under our insurance policy. Therefore, everyone must agree to our Terms & Conditions before they can step foot on any of our properties. Contact Know Where to Hunt Support to make necessary arrangements.

All of our properties have a Max Number of Hunters Allowed. You can visit the Property Details page of each property to see specifics about that field.

Morning or Entire Day Hunts

If you are hunting the Morning or the Entire Day, you can be there as early as you want. But the beauty of Know Where to Hunt is that you don't have to get there super early like you do for public hunting (a.k.a Combat Hunting).

Afternoon Hunts

If you are hunting in the Afternoon, you can start walking into the field by 11:45 or when you see the Morning Hunt picking up decoys (whichever comes first). The Morning Hunt is supposed to stop at 11:30 and be picked up by 12:00 noon.

If there is nobody hunting the Morning Hunt, then you can enter the field as early as 11:00 to start setting up your decoys.

Absolutely Yes! Dogs are always welcome. There is plenty of room in our blinds for dogs.

No Problem! Know Where to Hunt has decoys for rent. Just make sure to rent the necessary decoys when you book your hunt! We have Snow Goose and Mallard decoys available.
Absolutely Not! Know Where to Hunt members can only have 3 hunts booked at any given time! This way every member has a chance to book the field of choice and not have a member tie-up a certain field.

Guided Hunts

That depends on which type of Guided Hunt you chose!

If you chose to join an Open Guided Hunt then YES you will be sharing the field with other members who have also chosen the Open Guided Hunt option.

If you chose the Private Guided Hunt then NO, you do not have to share the field!
That depends on which type of Guided Hunt you chose!

If you chose to join an Open Guided Hunt then - NO. Open Guided Hunts are reserved for members only.

If you chose the Private Guided Hunt then - YES. With Private Guided Hunts you (the scheduling member) are in complete control of who joins your hunt. Full-Season memberships come with one free guest pass that can be used to take a non-member out hunting on one of our properties. If you have already used that free membership, then non-members can join the hunt for a $50 fee.

Morning or Entire Day Hunts

If you are hunting the Morning or the Entire Day, you can be there as early as you want. If you want to learn about decoy spreads and help the guide setup decoys, then come early and join the fun! Please let the guide know ahead of time so he can recommend a time.

Afternoon Hunts

If you are hunting in the Afternoon, you can start walking into the field by 11:45 or when you see the Morning Hunt picking up decoys (whichever comes first). The Morning Hunt is supposed to stop at 11:30 and be picked up by 12:00 noon. Again, if you want to learn about decoy spreads and help the guide setup decoys, please make arrangements with the guide ahead of time!

If there is nobody hunting the Morning Hunt, then you can enter the field as early as 11:00 to start setting up your decoys.

You will want to talk to the guide about bringing your dog. Some guides prefer to use their dog while others let the hunters bring their dogs. In order to avoid situations where multiple hunters bring their dogs, we require you to communicate directly with the guide.

Blinds

No, not all fields have blinds. However we do show "Recommended Spots" on our website. Just go to the Details page for each property and look at the Maps section.

Yes - you are NOT required to hunt from the blind. We just ask that you use common sense when it comes to hunting near people, homes and roads.

Go to the Property Details page for information on the maximum number of hunters allowed. We base the max number of hunters off of the size of the blind.

Decoys

Snow Geese

Early season – A guy can get by with 100-150 decoys. You will definitely want a motion in your spread so flyer decoys or a hand-held flag can be instrumental in getting the flock’s attention!

Late season – The bigger the spread, the better.

Ducks

We have found that spreads as small as one dozen decoys up to three dozen work great. The key for ducks is motion! Get a couple spinner decoys (non-motorized) for your spread and that will definitely help draw ducks in!

Snow Geese

There’s no doubt that full-body decoys look the best, but transporting large numbers of full-body decoys takes a lot of effort, not to mention space.

Early season – Sock style decoys are great! There are so many young birds down from the North and they will decoy to just about anything white. Sock style decoys like Sillosocks and Sky Fly are cheap and easy to transport. You can fit two hundred Sky Fly decoys in a large duffle bag and throw it over your shoulder.

Late season – As the season goes on, the snow geese get a lot more educated and the sock style decoys become less effective. This is when you need full body decoys. Know Where to Hunt guides love the Avery GHG Pro Grade and Avian X full body decoys.

Ducks

Throughout the season, Know Where To Hunt guides use the Avian X and GHG Full body mallard decoys. Make sure you get at least one Mojo Mallard Spinner decoy too.
