Help w/ North Dakota Hunt

5 posts in this topic

Heading over near Trotter, ND on the NW side of ND for a 7 archery hunt, Muley and White tails. Heading in blind, never been there, we have 40,000 acres to hunt, I'm told lots of open rolling land, only trees are inthe the small river bottom areas. Just looking for any help, tips ect. would be greatly appreciated. Will be hunting Oct 21-28th

Thanks for any help in advance.

Has anyone you are going with been there? Will the land owner give you some ideas? 40,000 acres with no pre-knowledge of the area is almost an impossible task if you ask me, especially for a bow hunt. Best idea I can think of is get ariels and/or topos ahead of time if you can and then try to narrow it down to just a few areas to hunt. Scout mostly the first day and then hunt. We used to hunt 8600 acres with rifle in Wyoming and its a lot of ground to try to cover.... I can't imagine almost 5 times that.

goto "terraserver.microsoft" and type in the city and state.

Then pick topo or photo and start zooming in.

I don't have a clue how to spot and stalk...

lawdog,

I am hunting w/6 others, 2 of them hunted here last year,but were out there the 1st week in Sept. We are getting help thru an outfitter, but as far as that goes all they tell us is where we can and cannot hunt. Anytime I hunt a new area I try to source as much info on my own befor heading out. I'm looking for more info as far as others success stand hunting or ground blinds, stalking ect. from past experience in this general region. Also camo patterns. Thanks again.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
