Fall hunts

24 posts in this topic

So, does anyone have any archery hunts lined up for outstate and if so where and for what?

I've never hunted out of state, but I'd sure like to try. I'm looking into some WI stuff, but it kills me to pay $160 for a tag. YIKES!!

yes Andy, the outstate tags can get a little spendy. I hunt ND every year and purchase 4-5 tags annually and it does cost. I'm lucky enough not to have to pay for lodging and have a ranch to stay and hunt at for no charge.

I hear you Powerstroke but some other states like Illinois are really pumping it up for out of staters. $365 if I am not mistaken. I would love to go out West some year for an archery elk hunt, even if its just for a cow! The experience itself would be awesome.

I am hunting ND near Mandan this year with a buddy on a 1000 private acres. I have bought my over the counter white-tail either sex tag/license for $215. The landowner is fine with us shooting a buck as long as we take an honest attempt at also shooting a doe. I can understand this.

My question is does ND have a specific tag for does only (like MN does with bonus tags?) or do I just have to purchase another tag/license for $215? I'd like 2 tags then I can save one for one of the dandy bucks the landowner has seen the pat few years and another for a doe. If all else fails I will make an attempt to shoot 2 does if I have the proper tags.

Since I am licensed do I just need to purchase another tag for a reduced Non-resident rate?

North Dakota Game and fish has not got back to me regarding this issue.

Thinking about going to Ohio for a hunt this fall, if everything pans out. I do hate to leave my backyard when there is so many good bucks here. Grass is always greener you know. smile.gif

When the rifle lottery is over, there will be some first come, first serve doe tags for $50.00 each. Depending on the zone you are in will depend on just how many there will be. Usually, alot of tags left. Watch the North Dakota game & Fish website and they will post the remaining tags per zone.

Thanks Harvey. Is this also true for archey? I should have stated I was bow-hunting.

Heading back to NW ND, have a muley or whitetail either sex tag. hunting sept 15th-22nd this year. Shot my first muley last year at 3yrds. Only a fork but what a rush, sitting on the ground. For anyone who is looking for affordable hunts, you can still find some unguided hunts on some of these ranchs for as little as $500-800 a week. This may not sound affordable but for anyone that has booked trips outstate thru an outfitter knows what a steal this is. More home work but well worth it.

I am heading to Alaska over Labor Day. We are going for 6 days. My Dad lives in Wassila and a guy that does work for him is a local and is taking us out. We are going after caribou. I'm getting pretty excited. And the best part is I only have to pay airfare and the tag. We I have been shooting 2 to 3 times a weeks for the last 2 months. Has any body been up there? Not sure what to expect.The guy that is taking us was a guide for many years on Kodic island and has shot many karibou. Did I mention I'm excited

Not an outstate hunt but and buddy and I are talking about camping in a non-motorized area for and week and bowhunting and fishing. It will have the feel of a big trip, but you're only a half hour or so from home! grin.gif

I wouldn't be so averted to the price of tags if I had an idea of the area or had a place to stay at the least. It just becomes a very expensive trip if you're not able to do some research or know someone out there.

I would love to do some combo hunts in ND/SD and I would love to try for Elk and Moose. I think a Archery Moose hunt would be my dream.

Mt Elk hunt for me 10 days in MT near Helena. Hopefully everything goes how it is suppose to. I might get back into bowhunting for whitetails if I have some time this fall that is the biggest problem for me. Anymore room in your camp Harvey wink.gif. Maybe I can work a trip out to the Watford City area for a mule deer time will tell.

Jason

Are you in need of a place to hunt?

My need for hunt is more dependant upon my having time to hunt. Working construction and getting jobs done before freeze up don't always allow alot of time for hunting. For the rifle season I have that taken care of but if I get myself back into archery more again which I would like too I might be.

When archery season gets closer and if you have the time, we may be able to work out some weekends or weekdays.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video
