Geese & Greenheads.
Originally Burbank specialized in Canadian Geese, but after the abundant successful from the small
lakes Paul developed (aka Paul's Ponds), the Mallard hunting demand
has matched the goose hunting. Burbank is one of Washington's best
kept secrets, since Burbank has the most consistent
hunting area in Eastern Washington (all season long).
big boys, the Great Canadian Honkers, which live in the Columbia Basin
are the ultimate trophy bird and are harvested all season long. Of course the fat Greenheads are prized also. Many birds have been mounted to bring lasting memories. Mounting these trophy birds will bring lasting memories. The taxidermist can meet you right after your hunt and will accommodate your desires.
Class Waterfowl Hunts’, with generous limits of 7 Greenheads and 4 Canadian Honkers.
Burbank is surrounded by mountains which provides a 'micro climate',
since it is located almost 500 miles inland and approx. 500 feet above sea
level. This small 'banana belt'
has mild winters, flowing rivers (Columbia, Snake Rivers and Yakima) all season long, 5 refuges and abundant crop fields to hold the waterfowl all season long.. The 300+
days of sunshine a year provides a long growing season
and variety of crops. The waterways bring them and the many refuges and
food keeps 'em creating a huge wintering ground for waterfowl.
Burbank is nestled in SE corner of Washington
State. This rural community
is just east of Pasco, which is also know as the Tri-Cites (Richland,
Kennewick & Pasco).
the hunt rest or take in some of the local sites, such as visiting some of the award winning winery's. Burbank is in the
heart of the largest wine growing area in Washington which is at the same parallel as France. Many local wines have ranked in the top 100 world wines!. Also there are
first class restaurants, shopping and museums.
In November the migratory birds follow
the mighty rivers to Burbank, which is at the confluence of the Columbia
and Snake River. The naturally carved waterways, from the rivers,
funnel the birds to our area and the many refuges and the abundant
agriculture fields keeps
‘em here all season long, until the end of January. When other areas freeze up,
our abundant free flowing water keeps the birds and offers hunting
opportunities from October thru January (the end of the season).
Multiple airlines service Pasco (just
10 minutes from Burbank) from Seattle, Portland, Denver and Salt Lake City. Driving time from Seattle
or Portland is 3 ½ hrs and from Spokane is 2 hours, non-stop
on good roads. If you are not flying directly into Pasco, then Spokane offer the best road conditions and shortest travel time for driving. From Seattle the mountain
pass posses challenges along with closures and from Portland the road
along mighty Columbia River can be icy or
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., due to knowledge of
waterfowl habits-his passion for over 30 years. His is 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. Location matters, with the in ground pits ( occasionally other blinds) strategically located to provide in your face shooting in proven private fields, with proven guides who are
expert callers and quality decoys. Yes
the weather 'bests us' once in a while, but not very often!
The Mallard hunting is
at one of “Paul’s Ponds- Green Heads only", or on the river.
The Burbank area holds a lot of Green Heads all season long, along with some divers too. 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 generous 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 DropZone Elite Goose Decoys, Full Curl Duck Decoys, Deadly Duck Blinds (which offer comfortable chairs and easy shooting) 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.
One of Burbank's success secrets is that Paul designs products to be a problem solvers or to enhance
the outdoor experience. Some of the guides were hesitant at first
to try new products, but after seeing the success and enhancement to the hunt, they quickly wanted them in their set ups. Their input is important to
Aero's success. He and his guides continually remodel and update the ‘set
Due to repeat business and TV shows,
little advertising is needed to fill all the pits/blinds every hunt
day which frees up monies for land and equipment enhancements. Each year the hunters are amazed at the improvments too.
Paul Sullivan, owner and chief guide, has been outfitting hunters
for over 35 years. His engineering background has taught him to analyze
all facets of the hunt an evaluate the adaptations needed for various
circumstances. Wanting only the very best has led him to developing
his own farms and equipment, to assist in making the outdoor experience
enjoyable and successful.
Paul’s passion for waterfowl
hunting led him to become a land developer, 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 TV shows, videos and magazine articles.
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 key proven, traffic patterns between feeding and resting.
It is not the quantity of acres, but the location and management that
makes a guide service successful.
Goose hunting starts with meeting the guide about 1 1/2 hour
before shooting time. Hunters 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.
Sometimes a remote location is used...if that is where the birds and best opportunities are for that day.
Duck hunts start with a meeting time around 8 to 9 AM. Then the guide will lead the hunters to the private ponds or along the rivers, with limits of Greenheads being the
rule. The ‘Deadly Duck’ Maximus Blind offers shooting ease in comfortable
director’s chairs with Full Curl Duck Decoys and Flutter-Wing decoys to bring'em in. The blinds hold 5 hunter and one guide, with on occasion 2 blinds being filled.
Multiple major hotels are only 6-10 miles from meeting
locations. Pasco airport has rental cars and 2 adjacent major hotels.
