You need a hunters safety certificate, regardless of how old you are. If you have that, then you just need to buy the non-res license and the Federal stamp (if you have fed stamp from MN or another state, you don' tneed to buy it twice).

There are several license options, so you just need to know where you will hunt and the dates. You have two one-week slots. You can always do the second slot the last week of the season, and then if you decide to go again earlier you can call up and change the start date of the second week slot.

The NoDak folks are very, very nice people as you probably know. I can't say enough about them. We got to be very good friends with farmers we met while hunting.

Have a fun trip!

You need hunter's safety if you were born after 1961. All the info you need is on the ND Fish and Games's HSOforum.

How the heck do you apply for a swan tag. I found the deadline is the middle of Aug, but I can't find out how to apply online. Can you? Or do you have to call them and mail in the app??

Anyone done this and know how it works.

The web site says that swan tags are not available at this time. You could call the license department at: 1-701-328-6335 & they can let you know if any will be available for non-residents.

Good luck.

They're available for non-res to apply for, the HSOforum lists the price for the permit for res and NR. I found where it said the deadline was Aug 13 last year, but can't find the application or anything on how to apply. I also found somewhere on their site the aps weren't available until the last week of july. That's pretty tight spacing if they were available July 25 and due Aug 13, no problem for me but it seems weird, just wanted to know if I have it right.

I found this, which is the application to hunt Waterfowl, Small Game, Crane, Furbearer and Non-game. In which you would think swan would be included, but I can't find it on there, I could just be missing it.

You are right Wade. Also there are some weekends where non-res cannot hunt on PLOTS land. No biggie though, lots o land to hunt there.

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
