non-res question


Recommended Posts

What does a person need for a non-resident license to hunt fox and coyotes in ND?? I see the small game is only good for two 7-day periods or one 14-day, but it doesn't mention varmints in the list. I might have some land lined up for next fall, but might have time to go shoot some predators this spring.

Thanks for the info. I did a little more careful looking and think I found what I need.

Another question is about a decent map for over there. Do they have any public hunting land maps or anything you would recommend?

You can pick up a booklet anywhere that sells licenses, it has all the areas of the state broken up by area. It is called PLOTS, private land open to sportsman, it is very detailed. I don't recall if it has all the public land as well.

Our PLOTS giude is on the GNF HSOforum.It will probably change a little for 2008.A lot of it is CRP,but there is plenty that isn't.In 2007 we went over 1,000,000 acres of PLOTS(Private Land Open to Sportsman).All areas have yellow triangle signs.It is all private land open to walk in hunting.

The guide will show you all PLOTS,State Wildlife Areas,and Federal Waterfowl Production Areas as well.Here is the HSOforum......just scroll down and click on the area you want.There is only one restriction for non-residents.....they cannot hunt it from Oct. 11th through the 17th.The first week of pheasant season.

One other thing that I would add, at least in the area I go, is that if you just go and talk to some of the farmers and tell them what you would like to hunt, they will more often than not point you to good areas and even draw you maps.... provided it isn't deer you are hunitng \:\)

The North Dakota folks we got to know are great, and we have fun with them on and off the field. You will have a great time.

KEN W,

Thanks for the info. I tried downloading one of those maps earlier and it didn't work, but it does now. That PLOTS is a great deal for hunters, and definitely something MN could learn from.

BoxMN,

I will be hunting fox and coyotes for the most part. I might get out yet this spring, but for sure next winter. I'm glad to hear it's relatively easy to get permission...now that I got into this predator hunting I don't want winter to be over!

Many ND fox and coyote hunters simply drive the back roads after the snow blankets the landscape. Prefer a cold, sunny day with a northwind. The fox and coyotes will curl up on the edges of hills - in the sun, but just out of the wind.

Sneak a little ways and shoot them while they sleep.

Amazing how many you will see on the right day.

I can't wait until next winter to get out there on some of those clear, cold days. I didn't really get into hunting them until late Feb. of this year, but next year I'll be on 'em right away.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
