photoNorthern Migration guide service has been Minnesota and South Dakota’s premier goose hunting and walleye fishing guide service for over 15 years now.  Whether it’s Canada goose hunting in the green fields of early autumn, hunting migrating geese in fall’s cut cornfields, chasing giant winter honkers, pursuing spring snow geese in South Dakota or fishing for Mille Lacs walleyes, Mississippi River smallmouth bass or other finned quarry all summer, Northern Migrations passion for the outdoors creates year-round adventure for you. Our special early-season goose hunts and fall goose hunts in Hutchinson, MN and Ortonville, MN and the west metro area happen on private land leased exclusively for Northern Migration clients like you.

We drive hundreds of miles to pinpoint the geese every day, and have secured thousands of acres of prime land to really put you on the birds. Our western Minnesota, and South Dakota duck hunts are legendary too. Come winter, let us guide you to the trophy Canada goose of a lifetime in our proven Rochester goose hunting pits.  Spring snow goose hunts are our springtime passion. We start in March, and follow the birds through South Dakota on their trek behind the receding snowline, finishing up in April. Snow-goose hunting success depends on extensive scouting, land access and huge decoy spreads: hardwork that we do better than

Once late spring and summer arrive, fishing is the name of Northern Migration Guides game.  We concentrate on Mille Lacs walleye fishing, the unbelievable smallmouth bass fishing on central Minnesota’s Mississippi River, as well as walleye, pike, muskie and bass fishing throughout the metro and central Minnesota areas. Whether your heart pounds at the sound of a dozen mallards, a hundred Canada geese or a thousand snows – or if you thrill to the bull-dogging runs of a trophy walleye, bass or muskie at the end of your line, Northern Migration Guide Service is here to feed your passion.
