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.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
