Geese & Greenheads.
Multiple airlines service Pasco (just 10 minutes from Burbank) from Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City (Alaska/ Horizon, Delta and United Airlines). Drive time from Seattle or Portland is 3 ½ hrs and from Spokane is 2 ½ hours. In the winter Spokane requires less time and requires not traversing mountain passes or along icy roads along rivers.
We bag 7 different subspecies of geese in our flyway, including the ‘Great Columbia Basin Honker’. Paul has been called the "Waterfowl Master", “Goose Guru”, etc., since he is so knowledgeable on waterfowl habits-his passion for over 30 years. His formal education is as an Aeronautical Engineer. He has transferred his love of flight to the love of waterfowl. By paying great attention to details, he knows how to get geese and ducks ‘backwinging™’ in at close range. No pass shooting, which can cripple birds. Easy shooting pits/blinds along with quality decoys are essential; plus having the right proven private fields, proven guides (who are expert callers) and years of experience. Yes the weather 'bests us' once in a while, but not very often!
The Mallard hunting is at “Paul’s Ponds- Green Heads only", or on the river! The Burbank area holds a lot of Green Heads. To assist in maintaining our bird population there is a $ 5 bounty (volunteer donation) put on each hen bagged, which is then donated annually to a waterfowl conservation group, such as Ducks Unlimited or Washington State Waterfowl Association. The last couple of years, we have been able to provide continual limits or opportunities of greenheads up to the last day of the season. Our bag limit has been 7 greenheads!
Expect only the finest equipment and the best set ups available! Each year Paul and the guides work at refining the hunt and the equipment. Burbank is the proving ground for sister company, Aero Outdoors. Hunt with Aero's New DropZone Elite Goose Decoys, Full Curl Duck Decoys, Maximus Blinds Deadly Duck Blinds (which offer comfortable shooting from sitting position) and custom pit blinds for geese. More information on the products can be found at, www.AeroOutdoors.com . Paul ensures all products are 'targeted for success' for all hunters. However Paul does not hesitate to share that when he adds new products, he can see the increases success each year . Some of the guides are hesitant at first to try some new products, but it does not take long for them to make sure they have them in their set up. Their input is important to Aero's success. That is why one head position on the new Full Curl Hen, was changed. The Paul and the guides said it needed to be improved upon.
Paul Sullivan, owner and chief guide, has bee outfitting hunters for over 30 years. He has an engineering background which has taught him to analyze all facets of the hunt. Wanting only the very best has led him to developing his own farms and equipment. Having the very best tools assist in making the outdoor experience enjoyable and successful. He has designed the DropZone Goose Decoys, Full Curl Duck Decoys and Maximus Blinds at the sister company, AeroOutdoors.com. He and his guides continually remodel and update the ‘setup ups’ (quality blinds and pits). Paul’s passion for waterfowl hunting led him to become a farmer, as well as a business man and landowner. Having control of the land enables Paul to have greater consistency, to offer quality hunts all season long. Paul’s expertise and friendly, professional operation has led Burbank Guide Service to be in many videos from major waterfowl supplies. Ducks Unlimited is featuring him on a couple TV shows during the 05/06 season.
All fields are scouted daily. Blinds are strategically located in ‘hot spots’ and designed to hold 5 hunters, plus the guide in the center. Safety is imperative, therefore refer to the ‘hunt rules’ and listen to the guides daily briefing. All fields are located in the traffic patterns between feeding and resting, or at those spots. Goose hunting starts with meeting the guide 1-1 1/2 hour before shooting time. They are taken to one of 12+ permanent pits in Burbank or 4 portable Maximus Honker above ground blinds, a spread of 2-4 dozen of DropZone Decoys and expert caller to finish the deal. Duck hunts start at 8-9 with meeting the guide, then out to the private lakes or rivers, with limits of Greenheads being the rule. Comfortable hunting will be in a ‘Deadly Duck’ Maximus Blind, in comfortable director’s chairs over the new Full Curl Duck Decoys.
