duck hunting in ND....I heard the farmers are very nice, is this true?

6 posts in this topic

My dads buddy said when he hunts out in ND, he will drive and scout for a while. When he finds a field he likes, more often than not the farmers have no problem letting him hunt. Is this true? I am hoping to plan a trip this year. Also is there quite a bit of public land? Thanks for any replies

Depends on the area. Anything within 20 miles of Devil's Lake is locked up pretty tight. We head about 65 miles away from DL, and never have a problem finding hunting land. When we find posted stuff that looks good, most of the time the farmers tells us he posts it to keep guys off during deer season. They seem more than happy to let you whack all the ducks you want.

as long as the farmers dont have others on their fields or had a bad expierence with a group of hunters and you are away from a bigger city you usually wont have problems getting the land and i reccomend not going to ask during dinner or lunch time

Just dont tell them your from a big town and be nice and you should be fine!! There are some spots around Devils Lake and in SE parts of ND but for the most part you have 99% percent of land that is open for you!!! Good luck, what parts are you gonna hunt???

My dads buddy usually calls and gives reports on the migration. I have yet to make it out there though. He just made it sound a little too good to be true, as far as farmer permission. Any areas you would suggest?

anywhere in north dakota can have good hunting at the right time of year. thats the best part of making a trip up there. simply pick a general area that has lodging, food, and gas nearby, decent water, a mix of cropland, roosts, and maybe sprinkle in some public land if you cant find a good field shoot, and call it a trip!

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.

    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
