North Dakota Opener

4 posts in this topic

The weather was not very good.On Friday I went out for a couple hours and saw a few little ones and the rain got so hard I quit.Saturday morning was a down pour and the evening I hunted with a sprinkle and saw 15 deer,but not one to my liking.On Sunday it rained in the morning and I stayed in bed.Sunday evening was a little better with 10-20mph winds and nothing wanted to move.Monday morning was so foggy I said enough and came home.The ponds and river were the lowest I have seen them in the past 15 years.Tough weekend to hunt.No bugs at all. smile.gif

I will go back next week. smile.gif

Exactly! Man, I'd love to get a nice doe opening morning. I'd take a buck too but I'm being realistic as I don't usually see many moving in my area until the rut. then they're looking all crazy and about as worked up as I am in my stand when I spot them.

Anyway, thanks for the update and good luck next weekend. Can't wait for MN opener!

On Friday, I saw 7 including 4 bucks in velvet. All within bow range, all bucks had velvet and the one fawn still had spots. Went out on Sunday, but TOO much Traffic and atvs and dirt bikes running all evening next to property I hunt. Still ended up seeing a couple, and had 4 wild turkeys near me!! Weather was good all weekend, except for light showers on Sat, but I hunt near Grand Forks. It was fun to get in the stand again.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
