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.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
