Attention Non Resident ND pheasant hunters


Smallie

Recommended Posts

ND legislature is cutting down non-resident pheasant hunters. The proposal is limiting non-resident pheasant hunters too - two 5 day periods instead of all season.

I have family in south eastern ND. They say that it sounds like it's the bigger metropolitan areas creating this rucus. You know there not the ones that own most of that great pheasant land and duck hunting.

These little towns out there get some major revenu from us non residents. I beleive there cutting off there own people of business and srticking up for wealthier people who have more political bull ****!!!

I will not go back out there agin if this new law passes not for a hundred bucks. It's just is a cheap to go to a game preserve. "Not exactly the same but beats giving my money to them"

If a person could take and use those two 5 day periods how he choose. You should not have to desginate your times you will use these. If you take 1 day here and two another day and so forth. Sorry for long message but I beleive this is a bad deal for North Dakota small towns, and non-resident hunters.

You would really think that would be a bad idea for them. That will be takeing alot of money from there state, I mean what else would you go to north dakota for?? Miles and Miles of nothing!

It appsolutely great for hunting but I couldnt find myself going there for anything else.

I know im not going to drive there every year for a 5 day hunt once a year.

When I was there this year I think the waterfowl was already that way but pheasant you could hunt everyday.

I hope they do not change it, we were way over buy montana and the people over there were great, everyone let us hunt, there were birds everywhere, and we planned on going back every year.

We were there for 10 days I dont think 5 would be enough, might have to go back to Colorado elk hunting, thats the trip we canseled to go to ND... Oh-well theres nothing we can do

It doesn't sound like this has been decided yet, most of the resident hunters beef is with the guides and outfitters.

Your right though, it would be cheaper to go to a preserve.

I hope like hell they dont do the 5 day 2 week deal either.

I wish more MN. farmers would get in on the CRP deal, we need MUCH more CRP land for these very few Minnesota birds to survive in.

I would sure love to get even HALF the quality hunt in Minnnesota compared to ND, and to hunt in my own state were you feel more welcome.
I live in Moorhead, and I would probably have to drive atleast a couple hundred miles south, just for 2 birds, if even that.

But atleast we have our fishing and deer hunting , EH?

Hopefully this will not pass through but its in the process of getting done. People are mad with the guides and outfitter most of them are bancrupt farmers who turned to the pheasant dollars.

Yes if we had MN farmers get more involved with habitat preserve and CRP we would watch the numbers and jump dramatically.

Well This is really disturbing to hear that ND is once again trying to limit non-resident hunters. If they do goto a 5 day format I will not be hunting there any more. What a waste. I think we should start charging $100 for non-res fishing licenses. Looks like I will be venturing else where for my pheasant hunting...

Keep us posted.

I think a better idea is for MN to goto a five day , renew as many times as you want for $100 licence for non-resident fishing. SoDak does it for pheasants and now ND is moving towards it. Of course the resort owners would fight that tooth and nail. But fishing is our best weapon, lets use it. Watch what happens in the legislature this year, with budget deficits looming big time, licence fees (or 'user fees', the popular term) will be going up. Lets stick it to the non-residents like they've been doing to us. Another good example is the raising of licence fees for big game hunting in Colorado, Montana, etc.

hey black jack has north dakota really been sticking it to you i dont think so. i am from n.d. I belive one of the main reasons for the 10 day or 2 five day upland license is to stop out of state corporations from buying land and driveing the land and tax price up n.d. did this with waterfowl in the late 70s for the same reason. There is alot of bull**** going on in north dakota right now lets just hope they dont pass a tresspass like mn. has or we will all be screwed personaly i dont mind out of state hunters in n.d. but this year where i hunt around sakawea they were more people than i have ever seen. b sander lets face it ifthey do pass this and you hunted around the mont border for 10 days you could still do this under the new format of 2 5 day hunts or 1 10 day hunt and what is another 13 dollars for your license because i believe you pay 87.00 now. and yes it is guides and outfitters that that take there clients on plots land and other public land that are the root of the problem. I think the res. of n.d. are just trying to keep all hunting in n.d for everybody and not just a rich mans sport I hunt with a guy from m.n that has 1000. acres around linton he bought for hunting and he put it all in plots maybe a answer to the problem would be if a out of stater buys hunting land he should have to put it in plots for a few years I dont know the answers to these problems but lets hope they dont screw it up for everybody i dont want this forum to become a n.d. mn. bashing forum this is just my opinon cross your fingers and hope they come up witha answer that keeps everybody happy

Ditto again.
Wouldn't it be nice
to go way out west,
like around Mott, and
actually have land to
hunt, without having to
pay someone

Pheasant hunting is/has defintely turned to a richman's sport. My dad's family is from the Sakakawea area and I've been hunting with him and his family for almost 20 years. Since I've moved to MN 8 years ago, it's bad enough to pay $85 for four roosters, but I still love getting the chance to hunt out there, and for my son in 11 years. I had poor luck hunting MN pheasants this year, but can't complain for my first year trying to hunt pheasants here.

Unfortunately, I only make it for three days each year to ND - hopefully more through the upcoming years. I'm all for ND trying to "help" the average hunter. If you can hunt 10 days of your choice, I can't complain. If it's 10 mandated days, it will be an overrunned, ugly mess.

It's frustrating so see my favorite pastime get chiseled away, bit by bit, every year. Anyone have any ideas on what can be done? In-state, out-of-state or nationaly?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.

      Who are these leech and kettle guys going back and forth??? 😉
    • leech~~
      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆
    • Kettle
      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?
    • Kettle
      Alaska lacks the population of walleye that I need to survive 
    • Mike89
      carp can be fun to catch!!
    • leech~~
      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍
    • smurfy
      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?
