headed to north dakota

Postby bflow08 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 7:45 pm

im headed to Noth Dakota for some wonderful waterfowl this year. I currently have 5 doz full body ducks and 5 doz full body geese and 4 mojos... the guys going with me have an additional 1 doz full body ducks.. so that makes 6 doz.. whats the forums opinion on if ill be set, or do i need to go out and get a few more dozen? im hunting for ducks mostly but im not aginst pounding a limit of honkers if they present themselves.. mostly feild hunting might hunt water in the right situation but i have no problems with floaters.. thanks for your thoughts.. if theres any hunters from around ashley in here maybe we can meet for a beer...

5 doz duck decoys will be plenty to go with the goose decoys. If you are short on space i'd leave some of the ducks home. The goose decoys are probably the most important part, 5 doz should be enough unless you're trying to hide a ton of guys maybe.

In my opinion you have way more than you need. We limit about every hunt and put out 2 doz FB ducks and 1 doz FB geese and a doz FB cacklers plus 3 mojo's. Sometimes smaller is better. I know guys that just put out 2 doz geese and a mojo and whack'm.

We hunted just south of Minot last year, plenty of public hunting spots to the east and south.
