Do you have land to hunt (prearranged?)... DL is heavily posted and guides have secured thousands of acres up there...it might involve some leg work and door knocking/phone calls to get on... DL is a good base but Id look east and north for less pressure and much less posted land... try the area around Lawton, Michigan, Edmore, Munich, even over towards Lankin... we have had great duck hunting around those areas this year. Hope you have a great hunt.

All I have ever read is devils lake has become a zoo with all land posted. I have focused on an area of the state with not as much water but not much pressure. That is the ticket. Good luck!

We have known a farmer from years before and have already been in touch with them and they own a lot of land.
