World-Class Guided Snow Goose Hunting
Welcome to South Central Snows
Illinois Snow Goose Hunting At Its Best
Why Choose South Central Snows
We have several locations on different sides of Carlyle Lake to take advantage of flight patterns. Our experienced guides will determine where the best position will be for your hunt. All the pits are surrounded by at least 4,000 full-body Dakota Decoys and other motion flyers.
Day of the Hunt
The morning of the hunt you will arrive at South Central Snows in Keyesport Illinois at 4:30 a.m. Once there you will meet the owner, Scott Gower, and his professional guides. Before heading out to your hunting location with your guide everyone will receive a safety briefing. You will then head out to your heated pit surrounded by a decoy spread of over 4000 full body and motion decoys. Shooting time starts one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

About South Central Snows
My name is Scott Gower and I am proud to present South Central Snows Outfitters. I am 43 years old and a very passionate outdoorsman.
We are located in South Central Illinois and will be hunting around the largest body of water in the state, Carlyle Lake. For many years we have had the largest wintering flock of snow geese in the central midwest. We have surpassed the million bird mark at the peak of migration with numbers growing every year.
My goal at South Central Snows Outfitters is to provide the most comfortable snow goose hunt possible, with all new decoys and callers plus 30-foot all steel pits that will be a truly awesome experience!
Hope to see you soon at South Central Snows Outfitters.
