Right now 3 for sure. Possible 6-7 depending on what shakes down with the slope workers once we nail the exact dates.

I wish I could promise this was the last question...what do you guys do with all the birds. I plan on hunting all week, but if I happen to limit out, the possession limit is only 3x the daily. Do you all eat that many ducks while up there. I can only convince a farmer to take so many. I'd hate to call it quits just cause I'm at possession limit.

How about a MN DHC Aug Goose?

Would be a good way to get a feel for the layout.

Sorry had to do it just surprised I did before anyone else.

Nodak is an interesting place to hunt, I know guys who go out and do terrible. The ones that do great are the ones who know the areas they hunt and scout. There are so many great places to hunt and so many that would look great that are no better than hunting in mn.

Yes you eat what you shoot, it makes sense and yes it is a lot if duck to eat but it's only for a week. We got into them good last year, we ate duck 3 meals a day for 6 days and still brought 2+ limits apiece home. Haven't eaten one since I got back.

As far as a license goes buy the statewide option especially if you are going in November. By the 2nd week there can be a lot if ice and don't bank on hunting one location. This is one limit you can't set for yourself out there. You have to follow birds. Find a starting area and go from there.

Thanks, that's good info, I had planned on sticking in just zone 1, but I would hate to limit myself. Between 3rd and last week of Oct how will pheasant hunting be? I really wanna get the pup out in the fields in the afternoon to shoot some roosters for her, after duck hunting in the morning.

Is that unrealistic, will I be spending all afternoon driving to scout the next morning?

I may be up for that, in late august/early September there's usually a decent amount of geese in my neighborhood.

Se used to buy a pheasant license but always ran out of time and number are not what they were 5yrs ago either. It's not unrealistic but tough to juggle both. The last 2 yrs we have had better afternoon and midday hunts than morning and evening. Weather and other factors really play into it and that's what makes a week hard to squeeze in both and do them effectively and make it worth while

Good point. I may be biting off more than I chew on my first trip. I will play it by ear I guess.

Yup, as previously stated it opened up on ,(I think), the 15 of august last year. I haven't seen anything official but I'd assume it will be similar this year.

Well I obviously don't know my way around the site very well, haha. Figured it'd be under goose hunting. So if I am reading the rules correctly.

If I am hunting in zone 1, I can only do so for 7 days before moving to another unit? So if we did this hunt in Aug, I couldn't hunt zone 1 if I wanted to hunt it in oct? My heads about to explode.
