Non-Resident Hunting

9 posts in this topic

We are looking at planning a trip to North Dakota for some waterfowl hunts this fall. When researching on the HSOforum, I noted the following regulation:

A Nonresident May Not Hunt G&F Lands Oct. 11-17

Nonresidents may not hunt on lands owned or leased by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department,Nonresidents may not hunt on lands owned or leased by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, including State Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) and Private Lands Open To Sportsmen (PLOTS), for the first week of pheasant season (October 11-17). This restriction applies to all types of hunting, not just pheasants. This restriction does not apply to lands owned or managed by other state agencies that may be open to hunting, such as state school lands, federal lands that may be open to hunting, such as US Fish and Wildlife Service Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs), or to private lands not enrolled in the G&F PLOTS program.

I am interested in what kind of hunting opportunities exist, other than private land, during this timeframe. Unfortunately, this is one of the weeks that we looked into coming up there. Any help would be greatly appreciated and look forward to any responses.

Thanks.

Your only options during that time are WPA's...

If you're after Waterfowl during that time you may have luck talking to Private land owners and making it clear that you're only after waterfowl - if you're after pheasants that's usually a different story.

We've been going for a long time. Finding spots to hunt has never been much of a problem. Where we go, north central, finding water has been tough the past couple years and this year will be no different. Very, very dry. Some of the relatives land had sloughs we hunted in the past and now could walk across with tennis shoes. Had not seen that in years. We'll probably pick another area of the state. Scouting ahead of time is always a good idea. We always ask permission even if it is not posted.

gear up to hunt fields and you'll be fine. otherwise plan on fighting for parking space at the wpa's.

we were up there last year during mea weekend...hunted mostly fields, but spent the first day on a pothole. we had to walk in 1 mile through a wpa to get there. we showed up at 4 am and there were 5 minnesota trucks sitting in the parking lot already. we were on private land and absolutely had a blast with all them boys sending the ducks our way!

Be ready to knock on doors. Don't be afraid of your non-res plates. Many areas have higher regard for these than the towners, especially if you can converse how you're spending $ into the local economy through hotels and eateries. May well be their close friends establishment.

Bryce, that may work with some, but I think principle is more important than the almighty dollar to most. Some people can take that kind of topic in conversation to be very arrogant and disrespectful like you're doing them a favor and you deserve to hunt their land. We have had our best success just being genuine, talking about the year's crops, how we are respectful of other people's property when we hunt, and how much we enjoy and appreciate coming out to hunt their area.

Just my opinion.

Respectfully,

Blaze

Hunter: "What is your favorite type of beer?"

Landowner: "(Insert answer here)"

Hunter: "You will have one on your doorstep tomorrow morning."

This has helped us get permission for the first slough/field in question and usually three of four more when the land owner gets his or her beer. Bring a map because they will often start circling their properties.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
