Devil's Lake duck hunting?

4 posts in this topic

We are thinking about a four day duck hunt near Devil's Lake. Need to find a small pothole that is easily accessible for fat old retired guys. If we have to pay it can't cost much.

Any general suggestions for duck hunting in that area in mid-October? Appreciate any help.

Why not Devil's lake it self? I never hunted it but my Tax man used to guide it and said that mid to more late oct. is some of the best duck hunting around and he also said to bring the fishin rod and rapalas and be ready for the really big walleyes and he was talking about fishing from shore.

I'm thinking of a trip out there for MEA week with the kids then a trip hopefully around halloween.

Check out Lakota Lodge in Lakota. It's just west of devils lake. Crazy cheap lodging with tons of waterfowl hunting close by. I see it's for sale now but it might still be up and running. If it is talk to Gene there. He's a great guy and might be be able to point you in the right direction as far as where the birds are. A hand full of years back he hooked me up with a private landowner and had the snow goose and greenhead shoot of a lifetime. That whole area up to Langdon is waterfowlers paradise.

Thanks you guys. Am still looking. I'd like to try to Devil's Lake area but am a little nervous about finding a pothole to use. We are too old and beat up to do much hiking around with a hundred pounds of stuff on our back etc.

I have been through that area and it DOES look like it should hold a duck or two.

I'll keep on looking and phone calling.

    • 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
