What Gear to wear for late October hunt?

Postby GHslayer15 » Mon Sep 14, 2009 5:52 pm

Some guys and i are coming up from Tennessee to hunt around jamestown, ND....I am wondering what weather to expect for OCt 18-24th. Usally hunt TN and Ark flooded timber, busting ice and freezing, but that is in Dec and Jan. Planning on bringing everything to hunt potholes and fields. Will it be hot? or cold? cool climate gear or 4n1 jackets/vest needed.
i assume most potholes are wader needed? any help on this matter would be great. Looking forward to seeing beautiful ND

Expect anything in ND. When in doubt, you can always peal off layers.

Hey we will be arriving when you are leaving! We will be in Jamestown on the 24th. Last year we went got their on the friday october 31st. By tuesday it was 80 degrees out...on friday we had a foot of snow!! We actually had to leave a day early because our exit was the next one down the line that was going to be closed. EXPECT ANYTHING while in ND.

Awesome....thanks for the info. How did you like Jamestown and the hunting there. I have heard nothing but awesome reports and i am looking for full limits hopefully everyday. What did you hunt? potholes? fields? phesants/grouse? I am really pumped and would love to hear about your trip. Are you renting a farmers house?

Jamestown is awesome lots of water and good field hunting also...

We hit a different area last year mid nov and shot thirty geese and thirty ducks in four days

Pretty good that was field hunting and water hunting

The weather changes every hour just wait...LOL

We are going to be a little south of u this year again around the 26th of Oct....

Good luck
