My roommate and I left grand forks at midnight Wednesday night and drove out to the badlands. Hunted Thursday Friday and Saturday. Ended the weekend with 8 roosters 2 sharpies a Hun.... Oh yeah and 2 Mullie bucks! It was a trip of a lifetime! Here's a link to some pics I put together.

WTG fishhead!!! It's killing me to not be able to go out there this year! Moving to MN was a great move for my family, but not getting the ND OTC any deer tag just flat out sucks! Thanks for sharing your adventure and great job on making some awesome memories with a buddy!

froggy, it's an OTC tag for ND residents. Non-residents apply and the odds are somewhere around 30% I believe (it's been dropping every year though). I applied this year as a NR and didn't draw. That was a real kick in the pants after being spoiled as an ND resident for over a decade and getting to go out there every year. It's great country and a wonderful place to hunt. There are some real stud bucks, but honestly, it's far from the best state to shoot a big muley in. However, there's great opportunity and if you're not set on a 180" buck, there are great times to be had out there. I can't wait until I draw and get to go back!

And the whitetails aren't bad either and for scenery, hard to beat seeing some Bighorn Sheep occassionally as well, including a couple studs!

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
