    A 2020 feature story dubbed biologist Dr. Chris Nicolai of Delta Waterfowl, “The Indiana Jones of Waterfowling.” One of our favorite stories to ever run in WILDFOWL Magazine tells of a dedicated waterfowl warrior who has deployed airplanes, helicopters, and net-guns to study waterfowl and lived right among nesting goose colonies. Don’t miss his tales of snoring pintails, the state of bird banding, avian flu, decoy carving, and the Duck Factory’s current status heading into the breeding season.

    46: The Snow Goose Rut with Terry Denmon of MOJO Outdoors

    46: The Snow Goose Rut with Terry Denmon of MOJO Outdoors

    Host Skip Knowles is on-scene in Alberta with MOJO Outdoors and Hidden Prairie Outfitters. It’s the thrilling end of the snow goose migration, where millions of geese fuel up on grain and stage before “leaping the trees” on the long flight to the tundra where they breed. Learn why the geese drop their guard and adult birds become so much more cooperative to decoy, and just why this may be the ultimate destination for superior snow goose hunting. The gang also tries out some new snow goose motion decoy prototypes and discuss the idea with Terry Denmon, the mastermind behind the MOJO magic.

A much-loved character in the industry, Big Jim is descended from market gunners, had to balance hunting with an elite football career, has built his own lethal giant goose decoys, and as our national sales manager, has some wild yarns about heading out over a mile on Great Lakes ice to kill ducks with his dad.
