Goodrich area duck hunting?

3 posts in this topic

Couple young dudes in the family think they are heading to The Goodrich NoDak area for some duck hunting in potholes and sloughs. Any general comments about the area or suggestions. I told them I'd ask.

But they generally don't trust people my age anyway!!!Ha!

I have an aunt and uncle that live in that area and they have people up every year for hunting from various locations and they always come back, so it must be fairly good. I don't chase waterfowl so I can't tell you any specific spots, but that's a real good area if you into that sort of thing and it shouldn't be hard to find places to hunt. There is a lot of PLOTS (Private Land Open To Sportsman) land in that area too, so it would serve them well to pick up a free copy of the PLOTs map book before heading out.

With the amount of rain they got this year the potholes should have water in them and be that much better this fall.

I've hunted and scouted that area a fair amount since moving to Bismarck 2 years ago. Pretty much everything private is posted. Permission is obtainable but there is a fair amount of pressure in that area and it can be tough to be the first to ask sometimes in my experience. Also got turned down on a field last year right next to Goodrich because Charles Snapp was up filming for waterfowler TV and they wanted to save it for him. Like was said, there is quite a bit of PLOTS land near there and with the wet conditions this year it shouldn't be too hard to find some ducks if you aren't picky.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
